Liverpool News and Form – Can Liverpool sink Napoli at Anfield?

After losing at Napoli on Matchday One, Liverpool have turned things around to sit top of their section. In their first home game of this campaign, the Reds almost let a 3-0 lead slip against Salzburg, eventually winning the game 4-3. Jurgen Klopp’s men then took back to back wins over Genk to leave themselves in this strong position.

The one thing missing from this campaign for them, however, is a clean sheet. That’s been a problem for them in Europe and the domestic front this season. Liverpool took a win in all three of their group stage home fixtures last season. Liverpool have won 9 of their last 10 Champions League games at Anfield (D1) so have some big home form behind them. That run includes their 1-0 success over Napoli in last season’s group stage.

It is a sequence of 24 matches unbeaten at home that Liverpool are currently on (W18 D6) in Europe. In that dramatic 4-3 win over Salzburg, Liverpool had been on a run of six straight clean sheets at Anfield. The Reds have won their last seven home group stage matches, tallying 24 goals in that sequence. It is a W8 L4 record that they have on home soil against Italian visitors, and Liverpool have lost two of the last five such fixtures, winning their last two.

Napoli News and Form – Can Napoli get first win in England?

After such a positive start by Napoli in this group, they have let things slip a bit. They could only manage a 0-0 draw at Genk following that win over Liverpool. They did then end an eight-match winless streak of European form with a win at Salzburg but were then held 1-1 by the Austrians back on home soil. They start the next round of action in second place, one point behind Liverpool and four ahead of Salzburg.

So there could be a bit of pressure on them if they lose at Anfield and Salzburg get a win over Genk on the night. Napoli have taken just six wins in their last 18 Champions League matches (D5 L7) and five of those six wins happened on home soil for them. They have been to England eight times before and have yet to take a win with a poor D2 L6 record there. In their last eight European away fixtures, Napoli have only managed to win twice (D3 L3) so will kick off at Anfield as reasonable underdogs.

Liverpool vs Napoli Predictions

Liverpool to win: While the defence of Liverpool cannot be trusted, their home form can. Even if Napoli show up and manage to get a goal on the board, Liverpool should have too much strength to let the Italians get anything out of this game. Napoli are currently well out of form. Home win & both teams to score.
