Team News: Gonzalo Higuain, Pepe Reina make Napoli debuts

Napoli give Gonzalo Higuain, Pepe Reina, Jose Callejon and Raul Albiol Serie A debuts in Rafael Benitez's first game in charge, at home to Bologna.

Napoli manager Rafael Benitez has handed summer signings Gonzalo Higuain and Pepe Reina their Serie A debuts at home Bologna this evening.

Higuain will be supported in attack by Jose Callejon, Goran Pandev and Marek Hamsik as Benitez opts for a positive lineup in his first game in charge at the San Paolo Stadium.

Pablo Armero and Blerim Dzemaili are out through suspension, giving Juan Camilo Zuniga and Gokhan Inler the chance to impress in their place.

Captain Paolo Cannavaro has been dropped in central defence, with Raul Albiol preferred as the Azzurri give four additions their bows in the Italian top flight.

Bologna have their own debutant in attack, with Rolando Bianchi leading the line just ahead of Alessandro Diamanti.

Napoli: Reina, Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Zuniga, Inler, Behrami, Callejón, Hamsik, Pandev; Higuain

Bologna: Curci, Garics; Antonsson, Natali, Cech, Krhin, Della Rocca, Kone, Diamant, Christodoulopoulos, Bianchi
