Probable line-ups: Napoli-Zurich (3-1 agg.)

Vlad Chiriches will make his first start of the season for a much-changed Napoli against FC Zurich in tonight’s Europa League last-32 second leg.

Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti confirmed in his Press conference that Chiriches would start, the defender having been sidelined for most of the campaign with an ACL injury.

Zurich, meanwhile, will be without the suspended Hekuran Kryeziu as they look to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg, which also saw them concede three away goals.

However, the Partenopei have lost only one of their last 14 European home fixtures – a 3-1 defeat to RB Leipzig last season.

Kalidou Koulibaly, Nikola Maksimovic and Mario Rui are all one yellow card away from suspension in the Europa League.

Napoli (probable): Meret; Hysaj, Maksimovic, Chiriches, Luperto; Verdi, Allan, Diawara, Ounas; Insigne, Mertens

FC Zurich (probable): Brecher; Bangura, Nef, Maxso; Winter, Domgjoni, Schonbachler, Kharabadze; Kololli, Odey, Khelifi
