This is a very special night in Naples, as a year on from Maradonas death, a life-size statue of the icon will be presented to the fans.

Itll be paraded around the pitch before it is given a permanent home just outside the stadium.

Napoli had a tough week, losing to Inter in Serie A and Spartak Moscow in the Europa League, but a result here will put them clear at the top of the table.

Osimhen was ruled out for three months after suffering multiple facial fractures in a clash of heads with Inter defender Milan Skriniar.

Matteo Politano still has COVID-19, though Diego Demme has recovered, with Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa and Adam Ounas injured.

Mertens was transformed into a centre-forward by Sarri and he retakes that role here tonight, with support from Lorenzo Insigne and Piotr Zielinski.

Lazio have a full squad at their disposal other than Adam Marusic, who is still positive for COVID-19.

Once again, Patric is chosen at right-back rather than Manuel Lazzari.

Immobile made his comeback midweek in the Europa League and scored two goals, but this is always a special game for the native Neapolitan.

Sarri was a hero at Napoli and came close to the Scudetto, but was somewhat disowned by fans after joining Chelsea and then Juventus.

Napoli: Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Lobotka, Fabian Ruiz; Lozano, Zielinski, Insigne; Mertens

Lazio: Reina; Patric, Luiz Felipe, Acerbi, Hysaj; Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Luis Alberto; Felipe Anderson, Immobile, Pedro
