Balotelli and Sneijder not "ready" for Napoli
Will Mario Balotelli and Wesley Sneijder be ready for Wednesday's trip to Naples? Lucien Favre responded in the negative in his post-match press conference: "No, I don't think they'll be there. They're two important players but they're not ready for a match like that. Wesley Sneijder did some work with a physical trainer in the Netherlands but he still needs a couple of weeks. Mario won't start. I can't tell you whether he will be in the squad - we need to do some x-rays to see whether his hamstring strain has healed, but I don't think it will have."
