Line-ups: Napoli's four tenors

Napoli have four tenors in the starting XI for tonight’s trip to the Stadio Piola in Novara.

The Partenopei are still buzzing from their Champions League victory in Villarreal and qualification for the knockouts.

Marco Donadel is the only injury absentee, though Walter Mazzarri has taken a risk with Goran Pandev joining the ‘Three Tenors’ in the side.

Marek Hamsik is moved into midfield, leaving Pandev and Ezequiel Lavezzi behind Edinson Cavani.

The enthusiasm around the team is sky high, as around 3,500 Napoli fans have made the trip.

Novara have Riccardo Meggiorini suspended, while Andrea Lisuzzo and Massimo Paci are sidelined.

Attilio Tesser changed his tactics to a 5-3-2 to protect the wings, a system he has used in Serie B in the past, but rarely from the start.

Andrea Mazzarani partners veteran Raffaele Rubino in attack.

Novara: Ujkani; Morganella, Ludi, Dellafiore, Centurioni, Gemiti, Marianini, Radovanovic, M Rigoni; Mazzarani; Rubino

Novara bench: Fontana, Morimoto, Labrin, Porcari, Granoche, Pesce, Jeda

Napoli: De Sanctis; Campagnaro, Cannavaro, Aronica; Maggio, Hamsik, Dzemaili, Dossena; Lavezzi, Pandev; Cavani

Napoli bench: Rosati, Fideleff, Mascara, Zuniga, Fernandez, Gargano, Inler
