Line-ups: Balotelli faces Napoli

Napoli’s Three Tenors face Mario Balotelli’s Manchester City in tonight’s Champions League showdown.

The two teams are going head-to-head for the second qualifying spot behind Group A leaders Bayern Munich.

Edinson Cavani, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Marek Hamsik are the front three, but the Partenopei have won just one of their last seven games in all competition.

On the other hand, Manchester City are on a run of nine consecutive victories and could probably be content with a point at the San Paolo.

Italian international Balotelli has been picked to start with Edin Dzeko, while former Lazio full-back Aleksandar Kolarov also plays.

 

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

Napoli bench: Rosati, Grava, Fernandez, Santana, Dzemaili, Mascara, Pandev

 

Manchester City: Hart; Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov; Silva, De Jong, Toure, Milner; Balotelli, Dzeko

Manchester City bench: Pantilimon, Savic, Clichy, Johnson, Barry, Nasri, Aguero
