Probable line-ups: Sociedad-Napoli

Napoli are expected to rotate for the match against Real Sociedad in the Europa League, as Andrea Petagna starts up front for the Partenopei.

The match kicks off at 20.00 UK time.

The Partenopei coach Gennaro Gattuso is expected to make changes after the win against Benevento in Serie A and David Ospina should be in goal against the La Liga side.

Elseid Hysaj is expected at right, with Mario Rui at left in defence, as Kostas Manolas and Kalidou Koulibaly complete the back four in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Diego Demme and Stanislav Lobotka seem set to give Tiemoue Bakayoko a rest. Fabian Ruiz can be pushed forward to sit behind Petagna with Matteo Politano and Lorenzo Insigne in the attacking trident.

Real Sociedad should start in a 4-1-4-1 formation with Willian Jose up front and David Silva should be there. Adnan Januzaj is back but expected to start on the bench.

Real Sociedad (probable): Remiro; Gorosabel, Elustondo, Le Normand, Munoz; Zubimendi; Oyarzabal, David Silva, Guridi, Portu; Willian Jose

Napoli (probable): Ospina; Hysaj, Manolas, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Demme, Lobotka; Politano, Fabian, Insigne; Petagna
