Line-ups: Pescara-Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne leads Napoli out against his old club Pescara this evening, as this result could spark a Scudetto party.

If the Partenopei do not win tonight, then Juventus could mathematically clinch the title in tomorrow’s Derby della Mole. Click here for the match previews.

Napoli are forced into several changes, as Edinson Cavani and Valon Behrami are suspended.

It means Insigne gets a rare start alongside Goran Pandev and does so in his old hunting ground, as he shot to fame at Pescara last season.

His 18 goals and 14 assists in 37 Serie B games helped them to promotion under Coach Zdenek Zeman.

It is also familiar for Morgan De Sanctis, who returns from suspension to face his first club.

Pescara have changed radically since last year and are heading straight back down, although they caused an upset last week by holding Roma to a 1-1 draw.

The Delfini are coached by former Napoli striker Cristian Bucchi, but are currently without Gaetano D’Agostino, Per Kroldrup, Vladimir Weiss, Juan Fernando Quintero, Francesco Modesto and Manuele Blasi.

They give a start to Federico Di Francesco, the teenage son of former Roma star and current Sassuolo Coach Eusebio Di Francesco.

Pescara: Pelizzoli; Zanon, Cosic, Capuano, Balzano; Togni, Rizzo; Di Francesco, Caprari, Sculli; Sforzini

Napoli: De Sanctis; Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Britos; Maggio, Dzemaili, Inler, Hamsik, Zuniga; Insigne, Pandev

Napoli: De Sanctis; Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Britos; Maggio, Dzemaili, Inler, Hamsik, Zuniga; Insigne, Pandev
