Melom out for Napoli?

Reports in the Netherlands state Miquel Nelom is out of Feyenoord-Napoli, so 18-year-old Tyrell Malacia will replace him.

The Partenopei have to win at De Kuip to have any chance of qualifying for the Last 16 of the Champions League, and they also need Manchester City to beat Shakhtar Donetsk.

While it appears City will name a weakened side in Kharkiv, Maurizio Sarri’s side have been handed a boost in the match they can affect.

According to AD.nl, Nelom has picked up an injury and will be unable to play in tonight’s game.

Feyenoord are already out of Europe, so there’s no reason for them to risk the 27-year-old if he isn’t full fit.

It’s expected he’ll be replaced at left-back by Malacia, who has played in five UEFA Youth League games so far this season, including a 2-2 draw with Napoli.
