PREDICTED LINE-UPS | Napoli v Fiorentina

Napoli and Fiorentina clash against each other tonight at Al-Awwal Stadium in Saudi Arabia to reach the finals of the Supercoppa Italiana and claim some early-season silverware at the end of it.

Winning the Scudetto last season sealed a berth in this new format of the Supercoppa Italiana for Napoli. The league title defence is virtually over for them with a 20-point gap opening up between them and leaders Inter. The transition from Rudi Garcia to Walter Mazzarri have not gone according to plan till now as it is a long road for the Partenopei to even secure a top-four spot this campaign. The Neapolitans are destined to go trophyless this term but a shot at the Supercoppa is worth taking and they will be on full flow to achieve the goal. 

Fiorentina arrive at this contest after ending up as runners-up in last year’s Coppa Italia final with Inter. They showcased their skills both in the cup competition and in the Conference League but their hearts were broken twice in the final games. A strong start to the season have ensured a top-four place for the Viola till now but it is set to change soon if they do not widen the gap with Atalanta. Vicenzo Italiano’s men have shown a balanced gameplay form and with their two strikes scoring in the last match, they will look to carry on their attacking momentum tonight. 

Here are the predicted line-ups for the match according to Sky Italia:

Napoli (4-3-3): Gollini; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Juan Jesus, Mario Rui; Cajuste, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Simeone, Kvaratskhelia

Fiorentina (4-2-3-1): Terracciano; Faraoni, Milenkovic, Ranieri, Biraghi; Arthur, Duncan; Ikoné, Bonaventura, Brekalo; Beltran
