Liverpool will be looking to get their campaign off to a positive start against Napoli as the two teams meet in a 2022-23 Champions League Group A clash in Naples on Wednesday, but the Partenopei will be keen to extend their eight-game unbeaten home run in the competition.
However, the Reds have their own golden streak of nine successive away wins in the European top flight, before the 1-0 loss to Real Madrid in the final, and Jurgen Klopp will want his troops to start afresh from the goalless draw in the Merseyside derby against Everton last Saturday.
Napoli, who defeated Lazio 2-1 in their last outing in Serie A, have faced a last-32 exit from their last two Europa League appearances but Luciano Spalletti will want to see out a fourth home clean sheet against Liverpool.
These two teams have met regularly in the Champions League over the last few season and Napoli always seem to cause Liverpool plenty of problems. Luciano Spaletti’s side have plenty of dangerous attacking talents and even though stalwarts Dries Mertens, Kalidou Koulibaly and Lorenzo Insigne have all moved on this summer, there’s a host of new arrivals who will be concerning Jurgen Klopp and Co.
Having experienced the agony of falling at the final hurdle last season, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will hoping to go one step further as they begin their Champions League campaign on this evening away to Napoli. The Reds have made a stuttering start in the Premier League this term, with many pundits blaming a hangover from their defeat to Real Madrid in last season’s final of this competition. Could a win away be the tonic?
The team sheets are in and Klopp has mades three changes to the side which was held to a draw against Everton at the weekend. Andy Robertson is back in the starting eleven in place of Kostas Tsimikas, James Milner replaces Fabio Carvalho, in midfield while Roberto Firmino starts up front in favour of Darwin Nunez.
Napoli meanwhile start with a forward line that includes wingers Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Matteo Politano alongside Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.
