Munoz is back available after his suspension, so he will take his place back in the starting XI together with Von Bergen and Aronica.
Dossena just moved from Napoli and he's already going to meet his previous team, playing on the left side.
As Ilicic is not available, Brienza will play behind the two forwards, Miccoli and Dybala.
Napoli have managed to climb into third position and overtake Inter with a heavy victory over Roma last week, taking advantage of the Neroazzurri's defeat in Udine. However, Mazzarri needs to make sure the points keep coming as his limited options often prevent rotation and therefore performances may drop in the near future.
Palermo have only won three points on their travels this season, which is the worst away record in Serie A. Gasperini's side have also gone five matches without a win, in which the Rosanero have picked up just one point.
On the technical side, Napoli should have no problem in controlling the match, especially given the two teams' recent form. However, the Derby of the South has always been affected by more than just football, and nerves and heart will play a part. If the hosts are strong enough to control those elements, Napoli will easily get the victory.
