Napoli vs Liverpool Match Preview

Liverpool begin their defence of the Champions League by aiming to fare better away to Napoli than in last season’s group stage, when they lost 1-0.

The Reds did not give the overwhelming impression they were potential kings of Europe when beaten by a last-gasp Lorenzo Insigne goal at the Stadio San Paolo last October. But that is, of course, what they became, nearly six months after exacting revenge on the Italians by the same scoreline at Anfield to scrape into the knockout stage by the narrowest margin.

This time, it is unlikely the duo will be fighting over second position, as was the case behind Paris Saint-Germain, because Group E is completed by Red Bull Salzburg and Genk, and so Liverpool and Napoli are the red-hot favourites to advance.

Since mid-March, Jurgen Klopp’s side have been in tip-top form and before this weekend their only defeat since January had been 3-0 away to Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final first leg – which, of course, they overturned at home in incredible fashion.

Napoli, meanwhile, began their 2019-20 Serie A campaign with a couple of 4-3 thrillers, winning at Fiorentina – when, remarkably, the last goal was scored in the 67th minute – and losing away to Juventus, heartbreakingly after battling back from 3-0 down.

This is likely to be a much cagier encounter, however, in keeping with their two meetings last term and Liverpool, having made the greater subsequent improvement, are backed to edge it this time.
