Manchester City can qualify for the Champions League knockout stages if they win at Napoli on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola's side have won all three of their Group F games thus far, with the only goal breaching Ederson's goal coming from Amadou Diawara's spot kick when the Partenopei visited two weeks ago.




Napoli were blown away by City in the opening stages at the Etihad Stadium but were unlucky not to claim a point come full time as Dries Mertens missed a penalty.

The Italians are flying high in Serie A with Sunday's win over Sassulo keeping them top of the pile, but need a win to keep their own hopes of a place in the next stage alive.

Start time

Napoli host Manchester City at Stadio San Paolo with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm on Wednesday, November 1.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be televised live on BT Sport 3, with coverage starting from 7.15pm. BT Sport subscribers will be able to stream the match online via the video player and the BT Sport app.

Alternatively, you can follow all the build-up and action from 2pm with NEW GERSY blog.
