Napoli vs Liverpool Preview

Since losing last season’s Champions League final to Real Madrid, the Reds haven’t been the same. Juergen Klopp’s men have won just two of their first six Premier League games this season.

They are coming off a 0-0 draw against the Merseyside rival Everton at Goodison Park. Things won’t get easier when they face the familiar group-stage foe in Napoli, where they failed to score in their last three visits.

On the other hand, the Italian outfits have started their new season in Serie A on the right foot. They have won three and drawn two of their five games.

Napoli beat Lazio by 1-2 in their last game, with Kvaratskhelia on the scoresheet 4-times already in the league.

Both teams will try to begin their European campaign with a win before facing Ajax and Rangers.

Team News and Lineup

Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp has a big list of injured players. Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, and Ibrahima Konate are all unavailable due to injuries.

The good news is that Thiago Alcantara has returned to training and could get some minutes off the bench.

Liverpool Lineup (4-3-3) Probable: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Arthur; Salah, Nunez, Diaz

Napoli winger Hirving Lozano suffered a head injury and was stretchered out in their victory over Lazio. Thankfully, it was not serious. However, the Mexican will sit out this one.

Diego Demme will miss out due to a foot injury. Other than that, Spalletti will get full strength to go against Liverpool.

Napoli vs Liverpool Prediction

It will be Napoli’s first group-stage match in the Champions League after the 19/20 season. Still unbeaten in all competitions this season, the Partenopei will look to start their European campaign on the right foot.

However, the Napoli defense could be vulnerable in the absence of Koulibaly because of a move to Chelsea.

On the other hand, an injury-ravaged Liverpool side is struggling to get points on the board. They have won only two out of six Premier League games and are coming off a 1-1 draw against Everton.

However, with Salah, Nunez, and Diaz up front, the Reds would score goals against Napoli.

  • Prediction: Napoli 1-1 Liverpool
