Napoli – Dnipro

Rafael Benitez ‘s quest for a third success in this competition continues as SSC Napoli take on Ukraine ‘s FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, in their first European semi-final.

SSC Napoli and FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk have met before in the UEFA Europa League, with the Italian side having good reason to hope they might kick off their semi-final tie with a solid home win.

The sides met in the group stage of the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League; Juande Ramos ‘s Dnipro won the home leg 3-1 (Fedetskiy 2, Matheus 42, Giuliano 64; Cavani 75p) but Walter Mazzarri ‘s Napoli won the return fixture 4-2 (Cavani 7, 77, 88, 90+3; Fedetskiy 34, Zozulya 52). Edinson Cavani scored four goals in that game and five overall against Dnipro.

Possible starting XI
Napoli: Andújar; Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Ghoulam; Inler, David López; Insigne, Hamšík, Gabbiadini; Higuaín.

Dnipro: Boyko; Fedetskiy, Douglas, Cheberyachko, Léo Matos; Kankava, Rotan, Fedorchuk, Luchkevych, Konoplyanka; Kalinić.
