UCL-Haaland to start against Napoli

Redbull Salzburg star player Erling Braut Haaland is expected to start in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League tie against SSC Napoli at the Redbull Arena.

Haaland will lead the attack alongside either Hee-Chan Hwang or 2017 CAF young player of the year Patson Daka. The Norwegian teenage sensation started from the bench when Salzburg visited Anfield as he was recovering from an illness.

Salzburg head coach Jesse Marsch confirmed that the 19-year-old was for and ready for the match.

"Erling [Haaland] is ready for tomorrow. We think he'll be in the starting line-up and ready for everything."

Haaland has been involved in 23 goals in just 11 matches and scored a hat-trick in his first UEFA Champions League game, an award for the best player in the elite competition's first game week, current Champions League top scorer and he is also in the Golden Boy Top 20.
