Eintracht Frankfurt tonight face an uphill battle to knock Napoli out of the Champions League, with Randal Kolo Muani suspended for the last-16 second leg.

As the German club wrestles with Italian authorities over whether away fans can attend the match at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, they face a two-goal deficit after defeat on home soil last month.

Rafael Borre is set to start up front following Kolo Muani’s red card in the first leg, flanked by Mario Gotze and Daichi Kamada who was rested on the weekend. Junior Dina Ebimbe, Jesper Lindstrom and Ansgar Knauff are injury absentees.

Napoli hope to have Kim Min-jae fit after he suffered a calf complaint in the win over Atalanta, although he has made a quick return to full training.

Alex Meret is another doubt after the goalkeeper pulled up in the warm-up and had to be replaced by back-up Pierluigi Gollini.

Hirving Lozano is also carrying an issue while Frankfurt’s visit is set to come too soon for Gianluca Raspadori.

Predicted Napoli XI: Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Kim, Oliveira; Zielinski, Lobotka, Angussia; Kvaratskhelia, Osimhen, Politano.

Predicted Eintracht Frankfurt XI: Trapp; Tuta, Jakic, Ndicka; Buta, Rode, Sow, Max; Kamada, Gotze; Borre.
