Napoli vs Eintracht Frankfurt XI: Predicted Lineups and team news for Second Leg UEFA Champions League


Eintracht Frankfurt face an uphill battle to knock Napoli out of the UEFA Champions League with Randal Kolo Muani suspended for Wednesday’s last-16 second leg.

As the German club wrestle with Italian authorities over whether away fans can attend the game at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, they face a two-goal deficit after defeat at home last month.

Rafael Borre is set to start at the front after Kolo Muani’s red card in the first stage, alongside Mario Gotze and Daichi Kamada, who were rested at the weekend. Juniors Dina Ebimbe, Jesper Lindstrom and Ansgar Knauff are out with injuries.

Napoli are hoping Kim Min-jae will be fit after complaining of a calf strain in the win over Atalanta, although he quickly returned to full training.

Alex Meret is another doubt after the goalkeeper pulled up in the set-piece and had to be replaced by midfielder Pierluigi Gollini.

Hirving Lozano is also carrying an issue while Frankfurt’s visit is set to come too soon for Gianluca Raspadori.

Predicted Napoli XI:

Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim, Oliveira; Zielinski, Lobotka, Angussia; Kvaratskhelia, Osimhen, Politano.

Predicted Eintracht Frankfurt XI: 

Trapp; Tuta, Jakic, Ndicka; Buta, Rode, Sow, Max; Kamada, Gotze; Borre.
