Probable line-ups: Napoli-Liverpool

Napoli are expected to start Lorenzo Insigne as a left midfielder and Fernando Llorente up top against Liverpool this evening.

Carlo Ancelotti is set to stick with his tried-and-trusted 4-4-2 formation, but with the added physicality of Llorente alongside Dries Mertens in attack.

The target man knows Liverpool well, having spent the last three years in English football with Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur.

That should see Insigne line up out wide on the left, as opposed to his usual position of second striker.

The Reds, meanwhile, are without goalkeeper Alisson and forward Divock Origi.

However, left-back Andy Robertson should pass a late fitness test and line up alongside the prolific front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Both sides met at the San Paolo in the Champions League group stage last season, Insigne scoring an injury-time winner in a 1-0 victory for the Partenopei.

Despite that, Liverpool ended up going all the way to lift their sixth European Cup.

Napoli (probable): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Manolas, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; Callejon, Allan, Fabian, Insigne; Mertens, Llorente

Liverpool (probable): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
