Napoli will be looking to bounce back against Genoa following their shock defeat to Empoli last time out.
With Juventus running away with the Serie A title yet again, Napoli’s defeat last time out has almost handed Serie A’s table-toppers the title.
The hosts travel to Arsenal in mid-week for their Europa League quarter-final and an emphatic win here will give Carlo Ancelotti’s side a much-needed boost ahead of the clash.
Genoa sit in 12th spot in Serie A but have endured a tough run of results in recent weeks.
Last time out Inter Milan made light-work of Genoa, running out comfortable 4-0 winners.
Despite having a six point barrier between themselves and the bottom three, Genoa will be eager to bridge a bigger gap to ease some nerves creeping in.
The hosts will be without Raúl Albiol, Amadou Diawara, Vlad Chiriches , Lorenzo Insigne and Faouzi Ghoulam meaning Ancelotti won’t be able to rotate much of his back-line.
Ervin Zukanovic and Cristian Romero are unavailable for the visitors but have no other issues.
Potential Napoli Starting XI: Meret, Malcuit, Maksimovic, Koulibaly, Rui, Callejon, Allan, Ruiz, Zielinski, Ounas, Milik
Potential Genoa Starting XI: Radu, Pereira, Biraschi, Gunter, Pezzella, Sturaro, Lerager, Radovanovic, Kouame, Sanabria, Lazavoic

With Napoli in desperate need of a confidence boost, the hosts will be eager to put Genoa to the sword.
Arkadiusz Milik has been on fire this season, netting 19 goals so far and he will be keen to add to this tally against a leaky Genoa defence.
Genoa have struggled to find the back of the net in recent weeks and a clean sheet shouldn’t be off the table for Napoli.
