Napoli host Roma in the Serie A on Monday night looking to get back to winning ways after a devastating defeat last time out.

The winner of Group C in the Europa League is going to be decided on the final day as Italian giants Napoli prepare to host Leicester.

The English Premier League side are on top of the table with 8 points after five matches, one point ahead of third place Napoli.

Both teams are separated by Spartak Moscow, who are in second place with 7 points.

Napoli suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Spartak last time out in Europe, which meant the Russian side completed the double over them; leaving their chances of progress perilously placed.

On the other hand, Leicester have been nearly as inconsistent as Napoli, having won two of their five games in the Europa League.
