Napoli v Liverpool betting preview
Napoli have lost only once in their last 7 Champions League home matches (against Man City)Napoli come into this game having beaten Sampdoria by a 2-0 scoreline on Saturday afternoon. Prior to that, the Partenopei suffered a blody 4-3 defeat at the Juventus Stadium - a match lost in stoppage time due to an unfortunate Koulibaly own-goal - and were extremely lucky to win 4-3 at Fiorentina on their Serie A opening match. As a result, Carlo Ancelotti's men sit sixth in the Italian top flight with six points, three points behind leaders Inter Milan. Defense remains a concer although Kostas Manolas was brought in from Roma. As to direct encounters, these two teams have been drawn together in the same group for the second season running. Napoli won this fixture 1-0 last season but were beaten by the same scoreline in the return at Anfield.
Arkadiusz Milik could miss out through injury but Lorenzo Insigne is set to return after recovering from an injury problem. Dries Mertens should get the nod over Fernando Llorente for the central stiker berth and should be supported by Insigne, Hirving Lozano and Fabian Ruiz should Ancelotti go for the 4-2-3-1 system. In case of 4-3-3, Josè Callejon in likely to retain his berth as right winger. In midfield, Allan and Elif Elmas are in contention for a spot alongside Piotr Zielinski. In defense, Nikola Maksimovic could be replaced by Manolas as centre back. Mario Rui is favourite over Faouzi Ghoulam for the left-back position.
Liverpool have lost six of their last eight Champions League tripsLiverpool will begin the defence of their sixth European title following their win against Tottenham in Madrid on June 1. The Reds are top of the early Premier League table with a perfect record after five fixtures. They enter this clash on the back of a 3-1 win over Newcastle. Prior to that, Jurgen Klopp's men beat Burnley, Norwich, Southampton and Arsenal. Champions League away games have been tricky for the Reds last year. They lost all three of their group stage games away from home, starting with a 1-0 against Napoli and proceeding to a 2-0 setback at Red Star Belgrade and a 2-1 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain. Plus, they suffered a 3-0 defeat at Barcelona in the knockout stage.
Divock Origi limped off during the match against the Magpies. Aside from that, Klopp has nearly a full squad to select from, as only goalkeeper Alisson, midfielder Naby Keita and full back Nathaniel Clyne are sidelined. The German manager is likely to keep faith in most of his starting XI. Trent Alexander-Arnold could be replaced by Joe Gomez at right-back while Jordan Hernderson should be flanked by Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum in the middle of the park. No changes are expected up front where the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Manè and Roberto Firmino will lead the line.
