The African duo of Faouzi Ghoulam and Kalidou Koulibaly will be aiming to return to the top of the Serie A standings when Napoli take on Genoa at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday evening.

Both Ghoulam and Koulibaly have started every game for Napoli this season, with Maurizio Sarri's men unbeaten after nine rounds of fixtures.

Key to their impressive start has been their defence with the club having conceded a mere five goals this season. Gli Azzurri have kept three clean sheets in succession.

Mauro Icardi scored a brace as Inter leapfrogged Napoli with a 3-2 win over Sampdoria last night, but the Naples outfit will regain their place atop the standings with a point away to Genoa.

Guinea international Amadou Diawara has also been a prominent figure for Napoli this season, with the club boasting a healthy African contingent.
