Nicola: 'Napoli-Livorno prestige'

Livorno Coach Davide Nicola is looking forward to a “prestigious challenge” at Napoli’s Stadio San Paolo.

It kicks off on Sunday at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

“Napoli are a team of champions, so for us to enter into such a prestigious and spectacular stadium will be a wonderful challenge,” said Nicola in his Press conference.

“It will be a game where we have to suffer, but as always we’ll give it our absolute all. Napoli are well set out by Rafa Benitez and have talented individuals, so we must try to be chameleon-like to adapt to their variations during the game.”

Marco Biagianti has not made the trip due to a muscular problem, left behind along with long-term absentee Ruben Botta.

Livorno have been a surprise package so far this season, picking up eight points in the last five rounds. They were only beaten 2-1 by Verona last week due to a very controversial penalty.

Livorno squad for Napoli: Bardi, Anania, Aledgani; Mbaye, Emerson, Ceccherini, Valentini, Gemiti, Lambrughi, Rinaudo, Coda, Piccini; Luci, Duncan, Greco, Belingheri, Schiattarella, Benassi, MosqueraEmeghara, Paulinho, Siligardi, Borja
