The starting line ups for the Serie A clash between Napoli and Juventus, scheduled at 20:45 (CET) are officially out.

Gennaro Gattuso chose the expected 4-3-3 formation, with Nikola Maksimovic failing to make the starting line-up for the encounter with the champions.

Manolas and Di Lorenzo will start in the defense, while Fabian and Zielinski will have the task to dictate the flow of the game. Insigne, Milik and Callejon kept their places in the attacking trio.

Maurizio Sarri also chose the 4-3-3 formation for his first return to Naples as a coach.

Ramsey was the one who lost his place in the starting XI to former Napoli star Higuain, while Bentancur is back in the Bianconeri’s midfield along with Pjanic and Matuidi.

Juventus will have the chance to increase the gap ahead of second-place Inter to six points, after the Nerazzurri’s 1-1 draw against Cagliari earlier today.
