Line-ups: AIK-Napoli

Edinson Cavani and Eduardo Vargas lead Napoli’s attempts to qualify in tonight’s Europa League trip to AIK.

The Partenopei leapt into second place in their group after the 4-2 win over Dnipro and would take a decisive step towards the knockouts with a victory in Sweden.

They already beat AIK 4-0 at the San Paolo, but their performances since then have markedly improved.

Goran Pandev is injured and Federico Fernandez suspended, so Cavani starts as he will be unavailable at the weekend in Serie A due to suspension.

Lorenzo Insigne is nursing an ankle injury, but Vargas hopes to replicate his hat-trick against AIK.

The Swedes look to Mohamed Bangura and Celso Borges to lead their 4-4-2 system.

AIK: Turina; Lorentzson, Karlsson, Backman, Johansson; Lundberg, Danielsson, Moro, Quaison; Bangura, Borges

AIK bench: Stamatopoulos, Tjernstrom, Majstorovic, Ahman Persson, Gustavsson, Ozkan, Karikari

Napoli: Rosati; Gamberini, Aronica, Britos; Mesto, Donadel, Dzemaili, Behrami, Dossena; Cavani, Vargas

Napoli bench: De Sanctis, Maggio, Cannavaro, El Kaddouri, Hamsik, Zuniga, Inler
