Stadium  Diego Armando Maradona
Referee   Clement Turpin (France)
Goal Scorer:

Napoli are currently without the services of three first-team players through injury, with Juan Jesus, Amir Rrahmani and Pierluigi Gollini on the sidelines for the Italian outfit.

The absences of Jesus and Rrahmani are big ones, but the home side did not suffer any fresh issues in their league success over Lecce on Saturday afternoon.

Victor Osimhen, who has five goals this season, and Matteo Politano will both return in the final third of the field, and there are not expected to be any major surprises when it comes to the home side's XI for this contest.
Napoli possible starting lineup:
Meret; Di Lorenzo, Ostigard, Natan, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia

Real Madrid
As for Real Madrid, Eder Militao, Thibaut Courtois and Arda Guler remain unavailable for selection, while David Alaba is also still out of action.

The Austrian was forced off against Las Palmas last week due to a groin issue, which saw him miss out against Girona, and he has not recovered in time for this match, so Nacho should continue in the middle.

There are big decisions to be made all over the pitch, with Fran Garcia potentially being recalled at left-back, with Eduardo Camavinga moving into his usual midfield position.

Both Luka Modric and Toni Kroos might have to accept spots on the bench for this match, while Rodrygo is pushing to be recalled in the final third, with the Brazilian potentially starting alongside Vinicius Junior despite Joselu's impressive scoring form early in the campaign.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Kepa; Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho, F Garcia; Camavinga, Tchouameni, Valverde; Bellingham; Rodrygo, Vinicius
Prediction: Napoli 1-1 Real Madrid
