SSC Napoli have published their squad list for Wednesday's (20:45 CET) Champions League match against Real Madrid, which will be the first leg of the Round of 16.


Goalkeepers: Rafael, Reina, Sepe.

Defenders: Chiriches, Albiol, Maksimovic, Ghoulam, Hysaj, Koulibaly, Maggio, Strinic, Tonelli.

Midfielders: Allan, Diawara, Giaccherini, Rog, Hamsik, Jorginho, Zielinski.

Attackers: Callejon, Pavoletti, Insigne, Mertens, Milik.

Napoli have a very dangerous squad upfront, with players like Callejon, Insigne, Mertens and Milik all capable of creating and finishing scoring chances, just like Hamsik, who is a very capable attacking midfielder thriving under coach Maurizio Sarri.

Former Real Madrid players Callejon and Albiol will make their return to the Santiago Bernabeu and fans should expect them to play with intensity, trying to prove that they deserved some more minutes while they were in the Spanish capital.

Real should try to keep a clean sheet at home if they want to have an easier return leg at San Paolo.
