Jurgen Klopp’s side are in need of a jump-start to their season sooner rather than later but they face a tough opener in Group A.
Napoli have made a strong start in Serie A, have one of the tightest defences in Europe and Liverpool have not found them easy opponents in the past.
On their last trip to Naples, three years ago, they were beaten 2-0 and the season before that they lost 1-0.

Napoli vs Liverpool prediction
Napoli are more than capable of continuing Liverpool’s poor run by dominating the midfield battle. Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz were again starved of service by a poor Everton side, and the hosts’ own attacking talent can punish the Reds.
Liverpool can, of course, get at Napoli, who are not as tight a ship since Kalidou Koulibaly’s exit, so we should have an entertaining game in store in Naples.
