Higuain hope for Napoli

Napoli hope injured striker Gonzalo Higuain could be fit for Saturday's Coppa Italia final against Fiorentina.

Higuain hurt his right leg during Saturday's goalless draw at Inter Milan and is doubtful for this weekend's big game in Rome.

The good news for Napoli is that the tests carried out on the Argentina international on Monday ruled out any serious injury.

A statement from Napoli read: "The latest tests done on Gonzalo Higuain after he collided with Inter's Marco Andreolli confirmed the initial diagnosis. It is a heavy bruise to the right shinbone.

"His condition will be evaluated over the next few days."

Higuain is Napoli's top scorer this season with 24 goals in all competitions.
