Line-ups: Napoli-Dnipro

Napoli cannot pull any punches, as they absolutely have to beat Dnipro tonight, so use Edinson Cavani and Edu Vargas.

The Partenopei are at real risk of elimination from the Europa League after two consecutive heavy defeats to PSV Eindhoven and Dnipro.

The Stadio San Paolo is open to all fans after emergency reconstruction work ordered by UEFA and the game kicks off at 18.00 GMT.

Walter Mazzarri still rotates the squad slightly, as he has made it clear his main priority this season is Serie A, but Cavani makes a rare Europa League start with Vargas.

Marek Hamsik is on the bench after returning from suspension, but Juan Camilo Zuniga is out injured.

It means Andrea Dossena takes the wide left role, while captain Paolo Cannavaro and Hugo Campagnaro are rested.

Ukrainians Dnipro are top of Group F with a 100 per cent record under Coach Juande Ramos and will qualify tonight if they get all three points.

They adopt perhaps a more defensive line-up than expected with Aliyev as support for lone centre-forward Zozulya.

Napoli cannot afford another slip-up, as they sit third with three points, one behind PSV Eindhoven.

Napoli: Rosati; Aronica, Fernandez, Britos; Mesto, Donadel, Inler, Dzemaili, Dossena; Vargas, Cavani

Napoli bench: De Sanctis, Maggio, Campagnaro, Behrami, Hamsik, Pandev, Insigne

Dnipro: Lastuvka; Denisov, Odibe, Mazuch, Mandziuk; Konoplyanka, Kankava, Rotan, Fedetskiy; Aliyev; Zozulya

Dnipro bench: Shelikov, Olijnyk, Kravchenko, Giuliano, Cheberyachko, Seleznyov, Matheus
