For Napoli, a shot at redemption comes quickly though with the side having a chance to salvage its defeat when it takes on AS Roma today. Another dicey showdown for Napoli, the side can overhaul its defeat to AC Milan the last time around by defeating fourth placed AS Roma.

Antonio Mirante from AS Roma will be inducted into our setup as the goal-keeper for today’s forthcoming fixture. The side’s shot stopper has taken the onus of fortifying his side’s backline, a player who has completely transformed what was an otherwise unsure of itself defensive setup.
The goal-keeper finds company in the services of wingback Leonardo Spinazzola and Roger Ibanez. The two have not only offered unstinted support at the back but have gone onto square the ball to their counterparts with their unrelenting runs up the park.
Napoli on the other hand will see us repose faith in Mario Rui owing to his ability to kill attacking plays by closing the ball.
With Napoli showing that they still need to paper over the cracks at the back after shipping three goals to AC Milan the last time around, AS Roma can easily go berserk today. This is a clash where Jordan Veretout can add to his four goal tally to see him be an instant pick for us.
Lorenzo Pellegrini who has the two goals links up with him, two talismanic figures who are spearheading the side’s ascendancy in the points tally. Napoli on the other hand will see us repose faith in Lorenzo Insigne who has hit home the two goals for his side with two assist man Matteo Politano giving him company.
At one point of time, not too long back, Henrikh Mkhitaryan looked to have run his race at the big stage. However, he’s managed to somehow rekindle his career, emerging as AS Roma’s top scorer this season to see him be an instant pick for us.
Edin Dzeko with the three goals will form the duo from the side while the three goals and three assists for Dries Mertens makes him our pick from the visiting unit.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The five goals and four assists Henrikh has see him captain our side while Dries is the vice-captain.
Donnarumma, Calabria, Kjaer, Rui, Hakan, Kessie, Alexis, Lozano, Insigne, Zlatan, Dries
