Team News: Gonzalo Higuain, Marek Hamsik return for Roma clash

Gonzalo Higuain and Marek Hamsik return for Napoli in tonight's Coppa Italia first-leg semi-final clash away to Roma.

Napoli boss Rafael Benitez has named both Gonzalo Higuain and Marek Hamsik in his starting lineup for the first-leg Coppa Italia semi-final clash away to Roma tonight.

The duo started on the bench for the Partenopei's 3-0 defeat away to Atalanta in Serie A on Sunday but return for the encounter in the Italian capital.

Jose Callejon retains his place in attack alongside Higuain and Hamsik, while January signings Jorginho and Anthony Reveillere also start.

Meanwhile, the Giallorossi start with a three-pronged attack comprising Adem Ljajic, Francesco Totti and Gervinho for Rudi Garcia's men tonight.

Radja Nainggolan comes into the fold at the expense of Miralem Pjanic, with Daniele De Rossi and Kevin Strootman partnering him in midfield.

Roma: De Sanctis; Maicon, Benatia, Castan, Torosidis; Nainggolan, De Rossi, Strootman; Ljajic, Totti, Gervinho

Napoli: Reina; Maggio, Fernandez, Albiol, Reveillere; Inler, Jorginho; Insigne, Hamsik, Callejon; Higuain
