The build-up to tonight's game has been huge, rumours about selection, a hostile welcome for Chelsea, it looks like it's going to be a classic European night. 

Here's ten facts about the game to help you rival the commentators trivia:

  • This will be the first meeting between Napoli and Chelsea.
  • The last English opposition Napoli faced in Italy was Manchester City, who they beat 2-1.
  • The last time Chelsea played in Italy, they were beaten 2-1 by Inter Milan.
  • The last foreign team to win in Naples were Eintracht Frankfurt in December 1994.

  • Chelsea have won only once in seven visits to Italy.
  • Chelsea won their group for the fifth time in six seasons without recording a victory on their travels.
  • Edinson Cavani has registered 16 goals in his last 18 outings.
  • Napoli are six games unbeaten at home, winning four, since a 3-1 defeat by AS Roma on 18 December.
  • Marek Hamšík has converted just five of his last ten penalties for the club.
  • Chelsea have committed 61 fouls, the lowest total of the last-16 teams ahead of the first legs along with FC Barcelona.

Really looking forward to this one, think AVB has done the right thing dropping trouble causers. Didn't think Lampard was like that before this season but his strop on the bench, leaked stories to the press, saw different.

All day today there's been stories that Lampard went to AVB and insisted he had to be in the team tonight and that AVB said he wasn't, where's that going to have leaked from?

Then Redknapp on Sky saying AVB has committed managerial suicide.

chelsea  are not at the races in any way possible AVB is not viable - not sure who is
