Group-topping Leicester City travel to Napoli looking to hold onto to first place and seal progression to the Europa League knockouts, bypassing the play-off round in the process, with both sides meeting on Thursday at 5.45pm (UK time).

The Foxes currently lead the charge in Group C, but just two points separates the Premier League side from Legia Warsaw in fourth, so things could change dramatically come the final whistle in Campania. A draw would be enough to put Brendan Rodgers’ men through to the knockouts, but if Napoli win, they will be relying on Legia Warsaw to do the business over second-placed Spartak Moscow.

Napoli team news

Victor Osimhen and Kalidou Koulibaly are sidelined until the New Year in what comes as a major blow to Napoli’s chances of progressing to the knockouts. Stanislav Lobotka sustained an injury at the weekend against Atalanta to become the latest casualty for Luciano Spalletti, and he joins Andre-Frank Anguissa, Fabian Ruiz and Lorenzo Insigne on the treatment tables. Kostas Manolas is also a doubt, so Spalletti really is stretched for choice at the back. Not ideal preparation when a certain Jamie Vardy is lying in wait.

Napoli predicted XI: Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus; Malcuit, Demme, Zielinski, Rui; Lozano, Elmas, Mertens.

Leicester City team news

Wesley Fofana and Ricardo Pereira remain long-term absentees for Leicester, but Rodgers could welcome back convalescing duo Youri Tielemans and James Justin. The latter is nearing a return after a serious knee injury, but will likely not be risked here for such a crucial game. Kasper Schmeichel sustained a slight wrist injury at the weekend, but should shake it off to feature in Italy.

Leicester City predicted XI: Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Soumare, Barnes, Maddison, Perez, Vardy.
