Napoli’s match against Frankfurt, which will take place at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, is scheduled for Wednesday, March 15 at confirmed Peruvian time at 3:00 p.m. The Neapolitan tent of Georgian Kvicha Kvaratskhelia, Nigerian Victor Osimhen, and Italian coach Luciano Spalletti wants to continue enlarging a season that, except for a major surprise, will be historic.
And it is that Napoli has never reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, a feat that has only ninety minutes and that will face wrapped by its people, overturned with a team that has returned the illusion to a city 33 years after the owners ‘Pelusa’ lifted the last Scudetto of his palmares in 1990.

The combined ‘Azzurro’ carries the poster of favorite not only for the result of the first leg but for the brilliant season that is signing in the domestic championship, in which it marches first with an advantage of 18 points over the second at the pace of the champion.
Spalletti will be able to count on the entire squad except for the Italian Giacomo Raspadori, still injured, although with the doubt of the physical condition of Hirving Lozano, who missed the game in Serie A due to a muscle resentment.
The coach will form with the usual system, with ‘Kvara’ and Osimhen monopolizing the spotlight in an eleven in which Spalletti can align, recover from his discomfort, Alex Meret under sticks and Kim Min-Jae in the center of the back, two key and immovable players of the Neapolitan box.
Eintracht Frankfurt, sixth in the Bundesliga table, arrives with a ballast of 0-2 in the first leg, which forces to score three goals more than the Parthenopean team.

However, they go to the challenge without being eliminated, aware that in the last campaign, they defeated Barcelona at home (2-3, with a 0-3 ten minutes from the end) and that just two days ago in Serie A Napoli fell at home against Lazio (0-1).
Eintracht, however, arrives with the burden of Randal Kolo Muani, the Bundesliga’s top scorer but with a broken card in the first leg, missing the match, as probably does Jesper Lindström, who suffered an ankle injury in training last week.
Lindström will probably be replaced by Sebastian Rode and as for Muani. he would join Rafael Santos Borré, who showed last season that he can perform at his best under pressure and has amassed four goals in each of the last four games on the previous road.
Napoli vs. Eintracht Frankfurt: possible line-ups
Napoli: Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim Min-Jae, Oliveira; Lobotka, Zielinski, Anguissa; Lozano, Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen.
Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp, Tuta, Hasebe, Ndicka, Buta, Rode, Sow, Max; Kamada, Götze and Borré.
