Napoli takes on Legia Warsaw tonight in Group C of the Europa League. Napoli won their previous game against the Polish side by a 3-0 scoreline. Here are the expected line-ups.
Napoli is in need of a victory tonight against Legia but confidence is high. Although the team is in 2nd place in Group C of the Europa League, they are in first place in Serie A. Furthermore, the 3-0 victory that the team managed against Legia last time around gives them hope of further glory.
With the team trailing two points behind Legia, manager Luciano Spalletti is expected to force a victory in this away fixture. However, some changes are to be expected over the Serie A line-up. Alex Meret, Eljif Elmas, and Diego Demme could return to the starting 11. They’ve been given opportunities in the Europa League.
Also, Spalletti could line up in a 4-3-3 system. This proved effective last time against Legia. It’s a departure from the 4-2-3-1 that the manager has favored in Serie A.
Here are the expected line-ups for tonight’s game:
Napoli starting line-up: Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Rui; Demme, Anguissa, Elmas; Insigne, Mertens, Politano
Legia starting line-up: Miszta; Wieteska, Jedrzejczyk, Mladenovic; Johansson, Josue, Kharatin, Luquinhas, Guimaraes; Muci; Emerli
Legia vs. Napoli is played tonight at 19.45 Eastern European Time at the Polish Army Stadium.
