Match background Only this chapter

Napoli will be eyeing a third successive victory in UEFA Europa League Group F as they host fellow domestic cup holders Rijeka, who appear cast adrift at the foot of the table without a point.

• The Serie A side came from a goal down to defeat Rijeka 2-1 in Croatia on Matchday 3, an own goal deciding the contest in their favour after Diego Demme's 43rd-minute equaliser had cancelled out an early Robert Murić strike. The win put Napoli on six points, the same number as group rivals AZ Alkmaar – who beat them 1-0 in Naples on Matchday 1 – and Real Sociedad – whom they defeated 1-0 away on Matchday 2.

Previous meetings
• Napoli faced Croatian opposition for the first time on Matchday 3, while Rijeka's previous experience of Italian clubs in UEFA competition had been limited to four matches – two against Juventus in the 1979/80 European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-finals (0-0 h, 0-2 a) and two against AC Milan in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League group stage (2-3 a, 2-0 h). Rijeka have therefore lost both of their previous fixtures in Italy.

Form guide
Napoli
• After four successive seasons in the UEFA Champions League, Napoli are back in the UEFA Europa League group stage – the prize for winning the Coppa Italia, which they claimed under new coach Gennaro Gattuso after a shoot-out victory against Juventus in the final (0-0, 4-2 on pens). The Partenopei also reached the UEFA Champions League round of 16 last term, going out to Barcelona (1-1 h, 1-3 a) after qualifying unbeaten as runners-up to Liverpool in their group.

• The 1988/89 UEFA Cup winners have competed in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase on seven previous occasions, four times after coming through their group. They have never failed to qualify from their section and have progressed as group winners on the two most recent occasions, winning all six matches last time out in 2015/16 when they also set the current record for the most goals scored in a UEFA Europa League group (22).

• Napoli scored five goals in each of their three home group games in 2015/16 – against Club Brugge, Midtjylland and Legia Warszawa – and were on a run of six successive UEFA Europa League group victories at the Stadio San Paolo until AZ shocked them on Matchday 1. Their overall home record in this competition, including qualifying, is W15 D7 L5, three of the defeats having come in their last five matches including each of the last two.

Rijeka
• Third in the Croatian league last season, Rijeka retained the domestic cup thanks to a 1-0 win against league runners-up Lokomotiva Zagreb in the final, which earned the club a third successive UEFA Europa League third qualifying round berth.

• Eliminated on entry by Sarpsborg in 2018/19 and in the play-offs by Gent in 2019/20, Rijeka battled their way through to the group stage this season, a 2-0 extra-time home win for Simon Rožman's side against Kolos of Ukraine in their opening qualifier preceding a 1-0 victory at Copenhagen in the play-offs. The Croatian side have participated in three previous UEFA Europa League group stage campaigns, in 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2017/18, but have yet to make further progress.

• Rijeka's away record in the UEFA Europa League group stage is W1 D2 L7. They failed to score in their first six away matches but have been on target at least once in the last four, most recently going down 4-1 at AZ on Matchday 2.

Links and trivia
• Rijeka's Italian defender Armando Anastasio, who is on a season-long loan to the club from Monza, was born in Naples.

• Murić played five Serie A games for Pescara in 2016/17, scoring his only goal in a 2-0 home win against Palermo.

• Napoli's Kosovan defender Amir Rrahmani played in Croatia for RNK Split, Lokomotiva Zagreb and Dinamo Zagreb between 2015 and 2019, scoring five goals in 81 league appearances.

• Darko Velkovski (Rijeka) and Eljif Elmas (Napoli) are fellow internationals for North Macedonia.

• Napoli are one of six former UEFA Cup winners in this season's UEFA Europa League group stage – along with Bayer Leverkusen (Group C), PSV Eindhoven (E), Tottenham (J), CSKA Moskva and Feyenoord (both K).
