At the Stadio San Paolo, Napoli and Liverpool will be facing off against each other, with the hosts desperately looking for a positive outcome to keep their chances of advancing to the knockout stage alive.
Gli Azzurri have failed to defeat Crvena Zvezda in the Champions League opener, playing out a scoreless draw although they’ve had a handful of clear-cut opportunities to grab all three points. However, after that failure, the Little Donkeys have secured two straight Serie A victories, beating Torino 3-1 on the road, while outplaying Parma at home. Still, the hosts will enter the encounter slightly disturbed following a 3-1 loss to Juventus last weekend that saw them dropping a goal lead.
On the other hand, the Reds, who defeated Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield by three goals to two on the opening matchday, are currently second-placed Premier League team behind Manchester City after playing out a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend. That draw has ended the Merseysiders’ six-game league winning streak, as Jurgen Klopp urges his side to move up a gear and return to winning ways already this midweek. Additionally, the five-time Champions League winners have hammered Napoli in summer’s friendly meeting by five goals to nil, which was their second-ever triumph over the Italian outfit in three head-to-head encounters they’ve been involved in so far.
Vlad Chiriches, Faouzi Ghoulam, Alex Meret, and Amin Younes won’t be featuring for the home side as all are struggling with injuries. As for the visitors, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, and Divock Origi are expected to remain in England and proceed with a recovery process.
