Line-ups: Napoli v Barcelona


Napoli have Eljif Elmas supporting Jose Callejon and Dries Mertens against Antoine Griezmann’s Barcelona in the second leg of the La Liga-Serie A trophy.

It kicks off at 22.00 UK time at the Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, and follows on fromthe 2-1 first leg Barcelona victoryin Miami on Wednesday night.

Callejon’s shot was deflected in off Samuel Umtiti, between goals by Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic, but Milik missed a sitter.

The Poland international was named in the starting XI this time with Dries Mertens, as Lorenzo Insigne drops to the bench and Piotr Zielinski is still not fully fit.

However, Milik pulled out in the warm-up with a slight muscular issue, making way for Callejon.

It gives summer arrival Eljif Elmas another opportunity to impress in the Partenopei midfield.

Barcelona go all-out with Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann in their trident attack, plus former Ajax star Frenkie de Jong in midfield.
