City sit in second in group A, three points behind leaders Bayern Munich, who will be able to secure their place in the knock out stages with a win over rock-bottom Villarreal, meaning Napoli and City are scrapping it out for the sole remaining spot.
The Italian outfit sit two points behind City and know that a win would put them in the driving seat with one game against Villarael to come, while City will know if they do taste defeat they will have a mountain to climb with just one game left against Bayern which they would have to win to keep themselves in contention for a knock out spot.
An Alexander Kolarov free kick was enough to earn a point for City when they played hosts earlier in the season, with Napoli have more than enough reasons to complain about not taking maximum points for themselves.
City added another layer of intrigue to the tie when Blues boss Roberto Mancini admitted an interest in bringing three Napoli players to the Etihad Stadium earlier this week, with Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani the focus of much of the Italian’s attention.
Cavani has carved a reputation out for himself as one of the most feared strikers in Europe over the past two years, and City will have to be mindful of him and stop him from scoring as he did when they first met.
The home side’s Premier League form remains as immaculate as ever, with the Blues ending Newcastle’s immaculate start with an emphatic 3-1 win at the weekend.
Mario Balotelli should start after scoring at the weekend, but will likely receive a more than warm welcome from the Napoli fans after spending three years with league rivals Inter Milan.
