The Partenopei are in dire need of a result here, because they were held 2-2 by Leicester City and then lost at home to Spartak Moscow when down to 10 men.

Mario Rui saw red in that game and is therefore suspended, but Mertens returns for his first start of the season after shoulder surgery over the summer.

Lozano also steps in, as Victor Osimhen and Piotr Zielinski are rested, with Juan Jesus having to fill the gaps at left-back.

Last night, Leicester came back to beat Spartak Moscow 4-3 in Russia, leaving Napoli bottom of the group and the only side still without a victory.

Legia Warsaw are the group leaders on six points from two games, so are not to be taken lightly.

Both their victories over Spartak Moscow and Leicester were 1-0 results.
