Napoli dealt injury blow ahead of Liverpool clash
The winner of Wednesday’s Anfield clash will qualify for the last-16 with a game to spare.

LORENZO INSIGNE WILL miss Napoli’s Champions League trip to Liverpool on Wednesday due to an elbow injury.

The 28-year-old suffered the problem during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with AC Milan and was replaced after 65 minutes.

Insigne has four goals and five assists in all competitions this season but has not been included in Napoli’s 20-man squad for the match at Anfield.

Fabian Ruiz and Faouzi Ghoulam have been selected, however, despite training separately from their team-mates on Monday.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side beat Liverpool 2-0 in the opening round of fixtures and can make certain of a place in the last 16 of the Champions League with victory over the Premier League leaders on Wednesday.
