Algerian left-back Faouzi Ghoulam remains sidelined for Napoli and had to watch helplessly last weekend as they stumbled in the Serie A title race.

The Partenopei have for so long this season looked capable of dethroning Juventus as kings of Italy, but on Saturday night they suffered a surprise 4-2 defeat at home to Roma.

A brace from Edin Dzeko inspired the capital side to an emphatic victory at the Stadio San Paolo which has put Juve back in the driving seat.

Napoli still lead the Serie A table on 69 points, but the defending champions are just a point behind and have a game in hand.

Ghoulam, meanwhile, continues his recovery from a fractured kneecap he suffered in training last month.

The Fennec Foxes defender is expected to return to first-team duties in mid-April.
