Napoli bring back Lorenzo Insigne, but have to call up a youth team player to plug holes in defence against Verona.
It kicks off on Sunday at 17.00 GMT, click here for a match preview.
Paulo Henrique is suspended following his dismissal in the 2-2 draw with Inter last week.
Kalidou Koulibaly, Ivan Strinic and Walter Gargano miss out on the trip to Verona due to injury.
The shortage of defenders means Sebastiano Luperto is given his debut call-up, the youth team player wearing shirt number 96.
There is good news, as Insigne receives his first spot in the squad after undergoing knee ligament surgery in November.
Napoli squad for Verona: Rafael, Andujar, Colombo, Maggio, Mesto, Albiol, Britos, Ghoulam, Zuniga, Luperto, Inler, Jorginho, David Lopez, De Guzman, Gabbiadini, Insigne, Mertens, Callejon, Hamsik, Duvan Zapata, Higuain
