Napoli News and Form – Can Napoli take another home win over Liverpool?

Napoli and Liverpool were together in last season’s group stage. The two traded 1-0 home wins. It was close between the two at the end of the day for second place in the group behind PSG. Had Reds keeper Alisson not pulled off a great late save at Anfield against Napoli on matchday six, the Italians would have taken that second spot at Liverpool’s expense. In their home game against Liverpool, Lorenzo Insigne got Napoli’s goal in stoppage time. This is the fourth successive group stage campaign by Napoli. After dropping to the Europa League last season they were beaten in the quarter-finals by Arsenal.

It has been four wins only by Napoli in their last 12 Champions League games (D3 L5). Each of the four victories in that sequence came on home soil. The Partenopei are on a three-match losing streak against Premier League sides (home and away), losing five of their last six. They have suffered two defeats in their last three home games against English sides (W1). But overall their home record against English opposition is positive at W5 D1 L2. Only twice from their five previous group stage campaigns have Napoli made it to the round of sixteen.

Liverpool News and Form – Can Liverpool take away win in Naples?

Liverpool are the reigning European Champions. How are they going to handle that pressure? They didn’t have a great group stage campaign last season, which made their triumph even more spectacular in a way. The Reds lost all three of their away games in last season’s group stage at PSG, Napoli and Red Star Belgrade. It was on goal difference that they beat Napoli to second place by. So it was a tight squeeze for Jurgen Klopp’s men. In the final Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-0.

Liverpool lost four games in their Champions League campaign last season (W8 D1), but they have won five of their last seven European fixtures (D1 L1). They have lost six of their last ten European games outside of England though. The Reds have been hit with a defeat on their last two visits to Italy, but overall, have lost three of their last nine there only in a W3 D3 L3 record. Liverpool have already had a taste of European success this season, beating Chelsea on penalties to lift the European Super Cup after a 2-2 draw.

Napoli v Liverpool Predictions

Napoli to win: There looks to be a little bit of value on Napoli to come up with a win. The trend of home wins along with low scoring games in recent meetings between these two is there to consider. So it may be worth a flutter on the side to nick a narrow home win.
