PREDICTED LINE-UPS | Napoli v Salernitana

Napoli host Salernitana at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium and have a date with history. If they grab a win and Lazio fail to beat Inter then Luciano Spalletti’s side will win the Scudetto with six games left.

It will the first Scudetto in club’s history since 1990 and the celebrations have already started in the city.

No major surprises are expected in Napoli’s line-up, which means that Hirving Lozano will start upfront alongside Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Victor Osimhen with Giacomo Raspadori initially on the bench.

Piotr Zielinski will regain his starting spot after being benched against Juventus last week and he’ll play alongside Stanislav Lobotka and Zambo Anguissa.

As for the defense, Mario Rui is still out injured. Mathías Olivera to start on the left with skipper Giovanni Di Lorenzo on the right while the two center-backs will be Kim Min-jae and Amir Rrahmani.

Salernitana’s coach Paulo Sousa has a couple of doubts. Pasquale Mazzocchi is pushing for a starting spot out on the right but it looks like one between Grigoris Kastanos and Junior Sambia will start the game.

Krzysztof Piatek is at risk too. Boulaye Dia is the favourite for the lone striker role with Antonio Candreva and Giulio Maggiore set to play behind him.

Here are the predicted line-ups from Sky Italia:

Napoli (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Lozano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia.

Salernitana (3-4-2-1): Ochoa; Daniliuc, Gyomber, Pirola; Kastanos, Coulibaly, Nicolussi Caviglia, Bradaric; Candreva, Maggiore; Dia.
