0 التعليقات
Signal-Iduna-Park, Germany will be hosting on Tuesday, 26 November 2013, an UEFA Champions League (Group F) match between Borussia Dortmund and Napoli . The match referee will be Carlos Velasco. 
The Italian side lost both the away crucial matches this season - against Roma and Juventus. In the last 2 or 3 years, also under Mazzarri, Napoli always played poorly in the most important clashes of the season. Anyway, they could profit from all the absences Dortmund are facing.
Marek Hamsik, who limped off nine minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute for Dries Mertens, will sit out Tuesday's vital Champions League clash. Zuniga and Mesto will also be sidelined for the visitors with knee injuries. The previous encounter between the two sides saw Napoli post a 2-1 home win thanks to strikes from Gonzalo Higuain and Lorenzo Insigne. Anyway, the Germans played with 10 men for a long period because goalkeeper Weidenfeller was sent off.
Probable lineups SSC Napoli (4-2-3-1): Reina – Maggio, Raul Albiol, Britos, Armero – Inler, Behrami – Jose Callejon, Pandev, L.Insigne – Higuain.
 
Borussia is in a huge crises and this match comes to them at the worst possible time. They experienced three defeats in a row, which has not occurred for a very long time, so this is the best indicator of what is happening in Dortmund. Everything bad is happening to them at this period, because they have a lot of injured players, and their schedule carries all very serious and important matches. First they were defeated by Arsenal in Dortmund, although it was a match where they were able to solve all dilemmas for the placement in the next round. After that, they were also mastered by Wolfsburg in Bundesliga and it was after they had a lead, and they were “knocked out” on Saturday by their biggest rival Bayern, and it was again in Dortmund.
They showed a great resistance in this match against the Bavarians, even though they lacked both of their defenders, Subotic and Hummels, as well as Schmelzer. They received three goals in the last half hour, which means that they have practically already lost the battle for the title. However, they can still save things in the Champions League, although they will again be without those three already mentioned players. The veteran Friderich, who was hired by the force of circumstances, is also not eligible to play in the Champions League, so it is very likely that we will see young and inexperienced Gunter at the stoppers position. The good news is that Piszczek is recovered and he will probably start in this match.
Probable lineups Borussia Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller – Piszczek, Sokratis, Gunter, Durm – Sahin, S.Bender – Aubameyang, Mkhirayan, Reus – Lewandowski.
