High flying Napoli faces a depleted Sassuolo side tonight, hoping to build on their unblemished Serie A record. So far, Napoli have won all four of their opening games, whereas Sassuolo have lost every one of theirs, losing to Inter 7-0 on Sunday.
The squad list has been released for the match, with Zuniga’s name left off it. The squad chosen for the game against the Neroverdi is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Reina, Rafael, Colombo
Defenders: Albiol, Armero, Bariti, Britos, Cannavaro, Fernandez, Mesto, Uvini
Midfielders: Behrami, Dzemaili, Inler, Radosevic
Attackers: Callejon, Duvan, Hamsik, Higuain, Insigne, Mertens, Pandev.
Benitez’s choice not to include Zuniga in the squad is an interesting one, given that the Colombian wing-back has continued to stall contract negotiations. Partenopei will hope to considerably improve their goal difference against a depleted Sassuolo side this season, with Higuain looking to extend his good start to the season.
