Chelsea vs Napoli match preview

Roberto Di Matteo takes charge of just his third match as 
Chelsea manager after Andre Villas-Boas' dismissal. The Italian won his first two matches in charge with 2-0 victory against Birmingham in the FA Cup and a 1-0 win over Stoke last weekend. Chelsea are in the last 16 for the ninth season in succession but have won just three of their seven Champions League matches this season, despite taking the lead in all seven games.

Napoli went through their Champions League group stage group along with Bayern Munich ahead of Manchester City who they defeated 2-1 at home and drew with 1-1 away. The club previously won the Uefa Cup in 1989, inspired by Argentine legend Diego Maradona. The side have cultivated a fearsome reputation for counterattacking football, and top scorer Cavani has registered six goals in his last seven games for club and country, with 16 in Serie A and 5 in the Champions League so far this season.
