Defensive Siena for Napoli?

Reports are suggesting that Siena will line up with a back five in an attempt to outfox Napoli in the Coppa Italia tonight.

Giuseppe Sannino’s men go into Wednesday’s second leg of their semi-final at the San Paolo aware that a draw is enough to see them through to what would be their first ever appearance in the competition’s final. The Robur won the first leg in Tuscany 2-1.

The Coach’s work in training suggests that he will be looking to stifle Napoli with a back five, in a game that sees him without several first-team men through injury. Mattia Destro, Emanuele Calaio, Gaetano D’Agostino, Angelo and Francesco Bolzoni all didn’t travel.

Meanwhile, Walter Mazzarri’s work in training suggests a full-strength Napoli side will be on the park from the first whistle.

Probable line-ups

Napoli: De Sanctis; Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Aronica; Maggio, Inler, Gargano, Zuniga; Hamsik, Lavezzi; Cavani

Siena: Farelli; Mannini, Belmonte, Terzi, Contini, Rossi; Parravicini, Codrea, Gazzi; Larrondo, Gonzalez
