Pandev back to face Bayern again

Goran Pandev is back in the Napoli squad for their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich after almost a month out with injury.

The Partenopei have confirmed their squad list for the midweek trip to Germany and have named the Macedonian attacking midfielder for the first time since October 1's match with Inter.

During that 3-0 win away to Pandev's former side, the player picked up a hamstring strain that resulted in initial forecasts of a two-month lay-off for the 28-year-old.

However, after less than a month away, the player is back to face Bayern at the Allianz Arena.

Pandev's last goal came against the Germans at this stadium when on duty with Inter in last season's Champions League Round of 16. His 88th-minute strike completed a dramatic turnaround for the Nerazzurri and was the deciding goal in a 3-3 aggregate match.

Napoli squad for Bayern Munich game: De Sanctis, Rosati, Colombo, Aronica, Campagnaro, Fernandez, Fideleff, Grava, Dossena, Dzemaili, Hamsik, Inler, Maggio, Zuniga, Cavani, Lavezzi, Mascara, Pandev, Santana, Ammendola.
