Napoli face injury crisis in defence

Napoli are struggling for defenders ahead of Wednesday night’s tough clash versus Atalanta.

While La Dea romped to a 7-1 victory over Udinese last weekend, Napoli could only manage a 1-1 draw with SPAL.

Carlo Ancelotti is now struggling with numbers for his backline, with Kevin Malcuit now likely to be out for the rest of the season after suffering an ACL tear at the weekend, and Kostas Manolas, Elseid Hysaj and Nikola Maksimovic all on the injury list.

The Partenopei have struggled this season but remain fourth in the table, however next weekend’s opponents AS Roma are just one point behind them in fifth.
