Line-ups: Tenors take on Man City

Napoli have their ‘Three Tenors' Edinson Cavani, Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi against Manchester City.

The Partenopei play their first Champions League/European Cup game in 21 years when stepping out at the City of Manchester Stadium this evening.

Walter Mazzarri has stated he will go on the attack and play as if this were a home game, so the trident is in place.

Marco Donadel and Miguel Angel Britos are out injured, but Walter Gargano is picked for the midfield and Juan Zuniga preferred to Andrea Dossena.

It is a “special game” for Sergio Aguero, as his father-in-law is Napoli legend Diego Armando Maradona.

Manager Roberto Mancini has to do without Nigel de Jong and the suspended Mario Balotelli.

James Milner failed a late fitness test, but Gareth Barry, Pablo Zabaleta and ex-Lazio full-back Aleksandr Kolarov step in.

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov; Yaya Toure, Barry, Silva, Nasri; Aguero, Dzeko

Man City bench: Pantilimon, Richards, Savic, Clichy, Kolo Toure, A Johnson, Tevez

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

Napoli bench: Rosati, Fideleff, Fernandez, Dossena, Dzemaili, Santana, Pandev
