Napoli Prediction – Can Napoli get off to good start?

The domestic season in Italy has only just got underway but Napoli have made a positive start to the new Serie A campaign having won 2 of their first 3 matches of this new domestic top flight season.

A 4-3 win over Fiorentina away from home gave Napoli and manager, Carlo Ancelotti, the perfect start to new term but an old foe dashed any hopes of causing an upset in their next match as they were handed a 4-3 loss away at Juventus.

Two away matches on the trot in Serie A was a tough start but Napoli bounced back immediately at home last time out with a 2-0 home win against Sampdoria on the weekend which they’ll be hoping can give them a timely boost ahead of this important Group E clash.

Form at home in the Champions League has been pretty steady and includes just 1 defeat out of their last 7 ties, with a 1-0 win over tonight’s opponents, Liverpool, last October, so Napoli will be hoping that lightning can strike twice at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday night.

Liverpool Prediction – Can Liverpool avoid defeat this time around?

Liverpool racked up a sixth win on the trot in all competitions on Saturday when they picked up all three points with a 3-1 home win against Newcastle United, but The Reds had to do it the hard way as they were 1-0 down from a goal by Willems.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s side got back into the match and eventually took control of the points at Anfield but they face another tough trip to Italy to face last season’s foes, Napoli, in the opening match of Group E in the Champions League.

Liverpool have been in impressive form away from home though, as the visitors have also won their last 6 on the trot on their travels, and have actually lost just 1 of their last 12 matches on the road in all competitions.

That defeat was a heavy 3-0 loss at Barcelona in May, but within these last 12 away matches, Liverpool have registered a total of 11 wins which is some record. Results away from home in the Champions League though haven’t been quite as impressive; just 3 wins out of their last 9 matches on their travels suggest this could be a tough opening match for the visitors.


Key-Facts – Napoli v Liverpool

  • Napoli have lost just 1 of their last 7 matches at home in the Champions League
  • Liverpool have won just 3 of their last 9 away matches in the Champions League
  • Napoli beat Liverpool 1-0 in last meeting at home in Europe


Betting Tips Verdict

Napoli edged a result at home in their last meeting but I fancy Liverpool to at least avoid defeat here this time around as the visitors possess a little more football under their belts at this stage.
