Lippi: Napoli have to believe

Cesena have to take on Napoli tomorrow night without goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli, so his replacement makes his Serie A debut.

The veteran shot-stopper, who is 42 years old, could well be out of action for three weeks after picking up a calf strain during training.

Alex Calderoni is another familiar face, but Cesena Coach Marco Giampaolo announced he is giving the gloves to Nicola Ravaglia.

It will be the 22-year-old Cesena youth product's Serie A debut after he completed a loan spell in Lega Pro with Spal.

Cesena-Napoli is on Saturday at 19.45 UK time and will be the first Serie A game to be played on an artificial pitch.

Cesena squad: 88 Ravaglia; 27 Calderoni; 4 Ricci; 6 Lauro; 13 Rossi, 16 Comotto; 25 Von Bergen; 28 Benalouane; 77 Ceccarelli; 5 Guana; 8 Candreva; 14 Colucci; 18 Parolo; 7 Eder; 9 Meza Colli; 10 Mutu; 29 Livaja; 32 Ghezzal; 55 Martinez; 70 Bogdani
