The Partenopei began their campaign with a 2-1 victory away to Lazio, but Ancelotti is prepared to make a few adjustments.

The Partenopei began their campaign with a 2-1 victory away to Lazio, but Ancelotti is prepared to make a few adjustments.

The biggest would be seeing ex-Arsenal goalkeeper Ospina given his debut in place of Orestis Karnezis.

Alex Meret is still out with a fractured bone in his arm and Ospina had a week to train with his new teammates after a deadline day loan move.

Another more surprising switch proposed by Sky Sport Italia is Maksimovic replacing Raul Albiol at centre-back.

Napoli paid €25m to get Maksimovic from Torino in 2016, then Coach Maurizio Sarri barely played him.

After a loan spell at Spartak Moscow, Ancelotti seems to be rediscovering the Serbia international, especially with Albiol’s shaky performance against Lazio.

This would be Maksimovic’s first Napoli start since a 3-2 victory away to SPAL in September 2017.

Other positions should stay the same, for example Arkadiusz Milik as the centre-forward with Dries Mertens on the bench.
