Napoli and Liverpool played three matches against each other in the last eight years. In the first match this season Napoli celebrated a 1:0 victory. In Europa League 2010/11, Liverpool recorded a 3:1 victory at home, while in Napoli the result was 0:0.

LIVERPOOL NEWS

After Chelsea defeated Manchester City in the derby match last weekend, Liverpool climbed to the top of the Premier League table. The dream of the first title since the inception of Premier League is very much alive at the moment, and manager Jurgen Klopp is certainly prioritizing the domestic league over Champions League. However, that doesn't mean that Liverpool won't try to win the upcoming match. They are playing at home and they need "only" a 1:0 victory to go through.

NAPOLI NEWS

Napoli was only the third favorite to win this group, and after their draw in the first round match against Red Star in Belgrade, nobody thought they can be better than Liverpool and PSG. However, they stayed undefeated against PSG twice and defeated Liverpool at home. They are a tough opponent and Carlo Ancelotti will probably try to record a draw in the upcoming game.
