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.

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.
