Napoli must do without Edinson Cavani again for tonight’s trip to Atalanta, so Lorenzo Insigne starts against ex-Partenopei hitman German Denis.
The Partenopei got back on track at the weekend by beating Chievo despite missing Cavani, who is still out due to a thigh problem and joined by Juan Camilo Zuniga.
Insigne is again chosen as the partner for Goran Pandev with Marek Hamsik in a deeper role, despite the Italian suffering from a slight ankle injury.
Atalanta have earned one point from the last three gams and are decimated for this tricky match, as Luca Cigarini and Federico Peluso sit out bans with the injured Davide Biondini, Ivan Radovanovic, Ferreira Pinto, Daniele Capelli and Michele Ferri.
Denis takes on his former club, partnered by fellow Argentine Maxi Moralez, while Carlos Carmona returns from injury.
Atalanta: Consigli; Raimondi, Stendardo, Manfredini, Brivio; Schelotto, Carmona, Cazzola, Bonaventura; Moralez, Denis
Napoli: De Sanctis; Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Gamberini; Maggio, Behrami, Inler, Hamsik, Dossena; Insigne, Pandev
