Napoli vs Liverpool will be one of the most exciting games of UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, which will be held at Stadio San Paolo, in Naples. Both teams showing interesting skills, but Liverpool is leading in Premier League winning all the games, while Napoli one more time struggled against Juventus. Read our thoughts about this interesting Napoli vs Liverpool Champions League match, here below.

Last season, both teams were in one Champions League group also, so they know each other well, moreover, they played a friendly game this summer, where Napoli took a very confident win 3:0. In CL, last season, Liverpool won at home with 1:0 result, similar to this, Napoli won 1:0 in Naples. Both teams finished the group stage with the same amount of points and goal difference, however, Liverpool had scored more goals, so they finished at second place and later, won the whole Champions League.

Napoli

The Blues played this year 3 games in Serie A. Everything would be great if they drew a match with Juventus. However, they lost this principle rivalry and lost important 3 points against Juve. Both teams netted 7 goals in total and Napoli caught up after leading by 3 goals. K. Koulibaly scored an own goal at 92nd minute. Anyway, Napoli looked great and showed solid character coming back to the game after losing by 3 goals, what a good result and indicator. During the last round of Serie A, on Saturday, Napoli calmly took 3 points over the Sampdoria. They were solid in almost all positions and doesn’t leave any chances for guests.

This year they have a big amount of talented players, so they can rotate first eleven more often. Unfortunately, several main players are over 32 years like Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente. The club worked also during the summer transfer window and signed very interesting and prospective players. They are ready to face Liverpool, however, at the moment they look really weaker than their Tuesday opponents.

Unfortunately, Napoli will play without main striker Arkadiusz Milik, due to injury.

Liverpool

The Reds started this season losing to Manchester City in the final of FA Community Shield after penalties. However, that was only one lost in 7 season matches. After that, they won UEFA Super Cup over Chelsea and took all possible points in Premier League. After 5 rounds in PL, they already have 5 points difference with the nearest opponent, as Manchester City has drawn match against Tottenham, and surprisingly lost against Norwich on Saturday. Present Premier League winners scored 15 goals in 5 matches, but conceded 4 already, what is a really bad result for the one of the best defence in the World.

As always, M. Salah, S. Mane and R. Firmino showing best skills together and scoring in every match at least 2 goals. Jurgen Klopp made any changes in the squad after a great last season, so they have to be very connected with each other. Players know already how to play, where to move and what to do. The Reds is in a good mood, perfectly prepared and want to win every match.

Unfortunately, Naby Keita, Nathaniel Clyne and Alisson will miss next game due to injuries.
