Liverpool vs Genk Match Preview
Liverpool remain second to Napoli in Champions League Group E, but should take another significant step towards qualification with an emphatic home victory against Genk.
The Reds’ only defeat in any competition this season was 2-0 away to Napoli, which is why they are trailing the Italian club in the table, and the match-day five reverse fixture at Anfield on November 27 may well decide who advances as group winners.
In the meantime, Liverpool would probably settle for a couple of home wins in this pool on Tuesday, with Napoli welcoming third-placed Red Bull Salzburg, although a draw at the Stadio San Paolo would also go down very nicely with Jurgen Klopp et al.
