Sports Mole previews the Serie A match between Napoli and Lazio.

Napoli will look to take a step closer to Champions League qualification when they host Lazio on Sunday afternoon.

Rafael Benitez's side possess a nine-point advantage over fourth-placed Fiorentina and three wins from their final six fixtures will be enough to secure third position.

The Napoli chief will be keen to see an improvement from his team after they fell to a 1-0 defeat away at Parma last weekend.

Lazio have work to if they wish to earn a place in next season's Europa League, with five points separating the teams placed between fifth and 11th.

The Rome-based club, who are seventh in the standings, have won their last two matches but they will need to improve on their poor away form if they are to pick up a result in Naples.

Head coach Edoardo Reja will be without the suspended Lucas Biglia after he picked up two yellow cards in the club's previous game against Sampdoria.
