Line-ups: Napoli-PSV

Napoli are already qualified as they welcome PSV Eindhoven to the San Paolo this evening in the Europa League, but Edinson Cavani still starts. Kick-off is at 18.00 GMT.

The Partenopei secured their spot in the next round as runners-up to Dnipro, albeit only due to the Ukrainians having a superior number of away goals in the head-to-head record.

PSV Eindhoven are already out along with AIK, but will be eager to go out with a positive result.

Similarly, Napoli want to maintain their 14-match unbeaten European home run going, as they haven’t lost here on the continent since 1994.

Cavani insisted on playing, as he is current Europa League top scorer with six goals and wants to add to that tally, while Walter Mazzarri noted his physique meant that a rest was not always good for his form.

El Matador partners Chilean Eduardo Vargas, while Brazilian Bruno Uvini gets a rare start.

The name ‘Insigne’ appears on the bench, but it is not starlet Lorenzo. This is his younger brother Roberto, who has been very impressive with the Primavera youth side this season.

Napoli lost 3-0 in Eindhoven when these sides met in early October, so watch out for Jeremain Lens and Marcelo, who were both on target and start tonight.

Napoli: Rosati; Campagnaro, Fernandez, Uvini; Dossena, Donadel, Inler, Maggio; Vargas, El Kaddouri; Cavani

Napoli bench: De Sanctis, Gamberini, Mesto, Behrami, Fornito, Pandev, R Insigne

PSV Eindhoven: Waterman; Manolev, Jorgensen, Marcelo, Bouma; Van Ooijen, Engelaar; Lens, Wijnaldum, Depay; Matavz

PSV bench: Tyton, Derijck, Brenet, Strootman, Hutchinson, Narsingh, Locadia
