A Win Will See City In Knockout Phase

Napoli haven't won a game in any competition for almost a month while Manchester City on the other hand are running riot over most.

If Roberto Mancini's men can grasp maximum points at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday night then City are guaranteed a place in the Champions League knockout phase.

Vital Quotes:

Napoli's Previous Three Games

Napoli Team News:

Napoli will be relying on the front three, Marek Hamsik, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Edinson Cavani if they have any chance of beating City.

Player to watch: Marek Hamsik,

The Slovak international has been applying his trade in Naples since his move from Brescia in 2007. His goal ratio is nearly one in every three appearances.

The 24-year-old striker should not be taken for granted.

Manchester City Team News:

City have no injury worries - the squad is: Hart, Pantilimon, Taylor, Richards, Zabaleta, Lescott, Kompany, Savic, K Toure, Clichy, Kolarov, Nasri, Milner, Yaya Toure, Barry, De Jong, Silva, Johnson, Dzeko, Aguero, Balotelli.

Player to watch: David Silva

There is nothing I can say that hasn't been said before - the man is a genius. Simples!

This will be an incredibly hard game, we must play without fear in a very hostile atmosphere and everyone needs to be on song.

The toughest group reaches the climax we expected. Do or die time is here and we have the tools to do the job.

Careful what you wish for stelios - a poor showing from City, Chelsea, Arsenal and the Rags would mean only THREE teams from the PL would qualify for the CL next season.

Could be nickster, then again still one game to go, so who knows? If it is we'll just have to come back next year and give it another go.

I believe you should be thankful Stelios. Ade's presence alone in the Spurs team seems to bring a balance that has been missing for a long time and just think if City hadn't bought him in the first place he could still be with Arsenal now scoring against you nearly every time he plays. A lot to be thankful for when you think about it.
