Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Victor Osimhen will start for Napoli against Torino tonight, while David Okereke is expected to replace Antonio Sanabria in the Granata’s attack.

It kicks off at 19:45 GMT at the Stadio Maradona in Naples.


The Partenopei have earned seven points in three Serie A matches under new coach Francesco Calzona, while Torino earned just one in the last three league outings.


Napoli are without the injured Cyriln Ngonge and Jens Cajuste, and Calzona is not expected to rotate much before next week’s Champions League game against Barcelona.


Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen will start in attack, while Matteo Politano is the favorite over Giacomo Raspadori. Amir Rrahmani is available but will rest as he recovers from an injury. Mario Rui and Mathias Olivera battle for a starting spot at left-back, Lorezo Bettoni reports for Football Italia.


Torino must cope without the injured Ivan Ilic, Matteo Lovato, Perr Schuurs, and Adrien Tameze, as well as the suspended Samuele Ricci and coach Ivan Juric.


Sanabria hasn’t scored since the reverse Napoli fixture on January 7, so he will be replaced by Okereke.


Napoli-Torino, probable line-ups

Napoli (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Ostigard, Juan Jesus, Mario Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia.

Torino (3-4-1-2): Milinkovic-Savic; Djidji, Buongiorno, Rodriguez; Bellanova, Linetty, Gineitis, Lazaro; Vlasic; Okereke, Zapata.
