Manchester City can qualify for the Champions League knockout stages if they win at Napoli on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola's side have won all three of their Group F games thus far, with the only goal breaching Ederson's goal coming from Amadou Diawara's spot kick when the Partenopei visited two weeks ago.

Napoli were blown away by City in the opening stages at the Etihad Stadium but were unlucky not to claim a point come full time as Dries Mertens missed a penalty.

The Italians are flying high in Serie A with Sunday's win over Sassulo keeping them top of the pile, but need a win to keep their own hopes of a place in the next stage alive.

Start time

Napoli host Manchester City at Stadio San Paolo with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm on Wednesday, November 1.

Team news

Pep Guardiola has no fresh injury concerns as he looks to reach the Champions League knockout stages at the earliest opportunity.

Ilkay Gundogan is pushing for a start after another substitute outing in the Premier League, while Raheem Sterling will hope his seventh goal of the season is enough for a place in the XI.

Napoli also boast a clean bill of health, with only long-term absentee Arkadiusz Milik sidelined.

Christian Maggio is fit once again so could replace Elseid Hysaj at right-back, while Kalidou Koulibaly, Amadou Diawara and Piotr Zielinski were all rested on Sunday.

Predicted line-ups

Napoli starting XI: Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; Zielinski, Diawara, Hamsik; Callejon, Mertens, Insigne

Manchester City starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva; Jesus, Aguero, Sane

Head to head

Before this season Man City had faced Napoli twice in the Champions League back in 2011, drawing 1-1 at home before losing 2-1 away to the Italian club.

Two weeks ago, City ran out 2-1 winners at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a pulsating opening 20 minutes - in which Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scored - before Dries Mertens missed a penalty and Amadou Diawara scored his in the second half.
