Napoli list Athletic squad

Napoli have listed 22 players in their squad for the Champions League Play-off round affair with Athletic Bilbao.

The Partenopei face off against the Spanish for a place in the group stage of UEFA’s premier competition and as part of the formalities, have named the squad of players to use during the two-legged tie.

Summer signings Kalidou Koulibaly and Michu are both named, whilst Walter Gargano also makes a midfield selection otherwise light in numbers.

Rafael and Mariano Andujar are the squad’s only two goalkeepers, whilst there are seven attackers named.

Goran Pandev is not listed, whilst Federico Fernandez’s omission is seen as evidence he is close to completing his move to Swansea City.
