Missing Players and team news:
Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina remains out of action with a thigh strain, with the 32-year-old stopper unavailable until the end of the month, so Alex Meret once more deputises as the visitors’ last line of defence. Ahead of him, Amir Rrahmani and Nikola Maksimovic will go head-to-head to replace Kostas Manolas in defence, as the Greek centre-back must serve a suspension on Monday. Midfield regular Diego Demme returns from his one-match ban, though, and should replace Tiemoue Bakayoko in the engine room. In search of one more goal to become the club’s outright Serie A top scorer, Dries Mertens will hope to get the nod over Victor Osimhen for a start in the centre of the Azzurri’s three-man attack. Torino, meanwhile, have their first-choice goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu back from a spell in self-isolation due to COVID-19, with Vanja Milinkovic-Savic therefore returning to the sidelines. Though the rest of the lineup is set to stay unchanged, as Davide Nicola has established an effective XI of late, in-form ‘Tonny’ Sanabria may expect to come back in for Simone Zaza up front.
