Napoli vs. Liverpool: Champions League – Match Preview

Liverpool’s defence of the Champions League starts on Tuesday as they travel to face Napoli.

Napoli have won two of their first three league matches, easing past Sampdoria on the weekend.

Two goals from Dries Mertens helped them to a comfortable win, leaving them three points off top spot.

Liverpool have won all five league matches this season, recovering from a goal down to beat Newcastle.

Sadio Mane scored twice, but Roberto Firmino, an early substitution, was man of the match, helping turn the game in Liverpool’s favour.

The two sides met in the group stage of the 18-19 campaign, with both winning their home fixture 1-0.
