Napoli Star to Miss a Game Due to a Scheduling Conflict

Napoli have had revolving doors in the back due to injuries and suspensions. They won’t be whole against Empoli either as Amir Rrahmani has been called up by Kosovo for a Euro qualifier against Israel that will take place on the same day, Il Mattino reports.

The game was supposed to be played in the past break but didn’t happen following the terroristic attacks by Hamas. The Partenopei elected not to ask to delay it. In any case, the League would have probably denied their request considering it would have been hard to find a hole in the busy schedule, especially since they’ll partake in the Supercoppa January. Instead, La Liga postponed Mallorca-Cadiz, which former Lazio outcast Vedat Muriqi would have missed.

Rrahmani sat out a few tilts earlier in the campaign due to a thigh injury. Leo Ostigard and Natan teamed up in the back in relief. Napoli routed Lecce and Udinese, drew with Bologna, and lost to Fiorentina and Real Madrid, allowing six goals in the two defeats combined, while he was on the shelf.

Mergim Vojvoda is also selected for the game. Torino will face Monza on Saturday. It’s unclear at this stage whether the Granata will try to get the contest moved to a later date. It’d be easier to reschedule it since the two sides don’t participate in the European cups.
