KICK off: 24 January 16:00
Information: Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso will again be without Victor Osimhen, Fabian Ruiz (both COVID-19) and full-back Kevin Malcuit (calf injury) for the trip to Bentegodi. With Dries Mertens now returning to full fitness, the Partenopei are otherwise at full strength, as the diminutive Belgian may be set to replace stand-in striker Andrea Petagna in Gattuso’s familiar 4-2-3-1 setup. Fellow forward Fernando Llorente is tipped to leave the club this week, so may not be involved. After an impressive outing against Fiorentina, Diego Demme will continue to deputise for Ruiz in midfield. Verona have Marco Benassi, Andrea Favilli, Ronaldo Vieira, and captain Miguel Veloso unavailable, with Federico Ceccherini and Adrien Tameze (both thigh injuries) also struggling to make kickoff. Twin ‘tens’ Mattia Zaccagni and Antonin Barak should start in support of lone striker Nikola Kalinic, with Samuel Di Carmine awaiting an opportunity to make an impact from the bench. Hellas Verona possible starting lineup: Silvestri; Dawidowicz, Magnani, Gunter; Faraoni, Lazovic, Ilic, Dimarco; Barak, Zaccagni; Kalinic Napoli possible starting lineup: Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Manolas, Koulibaly, Rui; Demme, Bakayoko; Lozano, Zielinski, Insigne; Mertens
