Villarreal Vs. Napoli, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

Napoli have all to play for in this match, and their lineup reflects that -- the absolute best starters for the partenopei prepare to take the field shortly in their final Champions League Group A match. A win, and they're through to the knockout round. A loss or draw for Manchester City, and Napoli are through as well....but Bayern Munich are fielding the kids at the Etihad, so in reality, this is a must-win match for Napoli.

Villarreal have nothing but pride to play for. The vesuviani faithful are hoping that's not enough.
