Liverpool head to Napoli after a thrilling 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and Jurgen Klopp’s men would be looking to continue their fine start to the season in this game.
The Reds have looked good so far in their tough run of games that has seen them play Tottenham, PSG, and Chelsea, with games against Napoli and Manchester City up next. So far, they have only lost to Chelsea thanks in no part to a magical Eden Hazard goal.
They beat PSG in their first Champions group game this season, and they would be going all out for the win here again as they look to reach the final like they did last season. However, Napoli are a good side when they play at home and this game is sure to be a thrilling contest.
Napoli suffered their second defeat of the season at the weekend when they were beaten 3-1 by Juventus. Since the loss of Maurizio Sarri, they have maintained a good form at home and all their three wins this season have come at home.
They were held to a goalless draw in their first Champions League game this season by Red Star Belgrade, however, that was away from home and they won three of four Champions League home games last season.
The only previous competitive encounter between Napoli and Liverpool came in the 2010/11 Europa League group stages, with Napoli claiming a point on home soil but losing 3-1 at Anfield.
