Cavani out of Napoli-Juve tie

Napoli will be without the injured Edinson Cavani in Tuesday’s Serie A showdown against Juventus, reports are suggesting.

The Uruguayan picked up a knock in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Atalanta and, according to Sky Sport Italia, he has failed to prove his fitness.

Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri was hoping he would be available for tonight’s San Paolo clash, but the centre-forward won’t even make the bench.

Cavani, who will probably now be replaced by Goran Pandev, scored a hat-trick in last season’s corresponding fixture.

Meanwhile, there is optimism that Gokhan Inler will be available for the tie.
