Team News

Napoli
Ajax
  • Piotr Zielinski recovered from a calf problem to come off the bench against Cremonese on Sunday, and that leaves only Victor Osimhen as Napoli's only injury concern.
  • With Zielinski available, Luciano Spalletti could go with the same XI that started the resounding 6-1 win over Ajax last week.
  • Jorge Sanchez and Ahmetcan Kaplan are Ajax's only confirmed injury absentees for Wednesday's trip to Napoli.
  • Dusan Tadic is suspended after his second half dismissal last week, so Steven Berghuis may start on the right and Florian Grillitsch come into the midfield.

Prediction

  • Napoli have been absolutely sensational in recent weeks having won their last eight in all competitions, including a 6-1 win at Ajax last week.
  • Ajax responded to that heavy home defeat with a 4-2 win at FC Volendam to end a four-game winless run.
  • However, with Tadic suspended and Napoli in superb form, the hosts should earn a ninth successive victory.
