Napoli have their showdown with Udinese on Sunday, but cannot count on Ezequiel Lavezzi or Christian Maggio.
Both players picked up knocks during the epic Champions League match against Chelsea that went to extra time on Wednesday night.
Marco Donadel is a long-term absentee and also misses this trip to the Stadio Friuli.
Napoli squad: De Sanctis, Rosati, Colombo, Aronica, Britos, Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Fernandez, Fideleff, Grava, Dossena, Dzemaili, Gargano, Hamsik, Inler, Zuniga, Cavani, Pandev, Vargas, Ammendola
