Champions League: Livescore from Napoli vs Liverpool

Champions League: Livescore from Napoli vs Liverpool

Napoli are joint second with FK Crvena Zvezda after both teams drew 1-1 last time out.

The 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev was another near miss for the Reds under Klopp, with Liverpool having also lost the EFL Cup and Europa League finals in 2016.

Lorenzo Insigne scores the decisive goal for Napoli.

The hosts increased the pressure as the minutes ticked down, with substitute Dries Mertens volleying against the crossbar 10 minutes from fulltime, but Insigne secured the points when he tapped in from a Jose Callejon cross. The Italian side will get their first chance against Liverpool on Wednesday. The Egyptian has struggled in front of goal this term after a remarkable first season at the club and there are one or two suggesting that an evening off might do the former Roma man the world of good.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson had his work cut out on his return to Italy after his move from Roma last summer.

Their squad was inferior - to say the least - to the dynamic juggernaut that Jurgen Klopp has assembled since he was appointed in the autumn of 2015.

Dossena had a brief spell at Liverpool towards the end of the 2000s before he returned to Italy with Napoli in January 2010.

Liverpool confirm that midfielder Naby Keita will remain in hospital overnight after suffering a back injury in Wednesday's Champions League fixture with Napoli. If the Keita injury is serious that means Henderson will start, but Xherdan Shaqiri and maybe even Daniel Sturrridge will now be pushing hard for inclusion.

Klopp hinted Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were not dynamic enough in the attacking third, on a night when Mohamed Salah failed to fire once again.

Liverpool had been top of the group after their 3-2 win over PSG two weeks ago with Napoli held 0-0 at Red Star.
