BT Sport 3 are set to televise this crucial encounter from half an hour before kick off. BT subscribers will be able to watch online but if you don’t fancy paying a bit extra a month then there are alternatives.

TEAM NEWS

Napoli: More or less injury free, Napoli will be at full strength for Wednesday’s clash with the exception of Polish international Arkadiusz Milik.

Cristian Maggio has also recently returned to the side so could replace Elseid Hysaj at full-back. Kalidou Koulibaly, Amadou Diawara and Piotr Zielinski were all rested at the weekend.

Manchester City – Vincent Kompany and Benjamin Mendy remain the only absentees for the blues as Ilkay Gundogan has pushed his way back to full fitness.
