Nainggolan is suspended and therefore will miss the game on Wednesday against Napoli. As a result of this suspension, there are many candidates aiming to take the Belgian’s spot. According to Tuttosport, Borja Valero (favorite) and Joao Mario are competing to replace the former Roma midfielder. 

Miranda will not be back in the defense as he continues to train separately from the team. Asamoah is expected to return to the left side after serving a one-game suspension. Vecino is also likely to be back in the lineup, playing next to Brozovic.
