Line-ups: Torino-Napoli

Napoli leave Edinson Cavani on the bench after his odyssey from South America to reach Torino, so Lorenzo Insigne partners Goran Pandev.

The evening game completes Serie A Week 30 and kicks off at 20.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.

The Partenopei are under pressure to keep hold of second place and are still technically in the Scudetto race despite a recent slump.

Walter Mazzarri admitted his frustration at the break for international duty, as injuries ruled out Morgan De Sanctis and Hugo Campagnaro.

Cavani only returned from South America on Friday evening and met his teammates directly in Turin, as his original flight was cancelled due to an engine malfunction.

Therefore the Uruguayan is not considered fit enough to start tonight’s match, but Miguel Angel Britos returns after fracturing his jaw against Juventus. Valon Behrami also starts despite bruising his heel on international duty.

Antonio Rosati gets only his second ever Serie A start in a Napoli jersey, having featured in the Europa League this season.

Torino are unbeaten on home turf in 2013 and fresh from upsetting Lazio under the snow.

Matteo Brighi and Valter Birsa are out of action, but Alessio Cerci is fresh from his senior Italy debut against Brazil.

Completing the trademark 4-2-4 formation are Paulo Vitor Barreto, Giuseppe Vives and Mario Alberto Santana.

Torino: Gillet; D’Ambrosio, Glik, Rodriguez, Darmian; Basha, Gazzi; Cerci, Santana, Barreto, Vives

Torino bench: Coppola, Di Cesare, Ogbonna, Bianchi, Caceres, Masiello, Bakic, Stevanovic, Menga, Meggiorini, Jonathas, Diop
