Napoli hosts Liverpool in round 1 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 17th at Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
Napoli won 2 of three games in the championship and lost to Juventus, having already conceded 7 goals. At the same time, it scored 9. Well, the Parthenopeans’ attack has been in order for several years. In the last championship, 74 goals were scored, in the year before last - 77, a year earlier – as many as 94. And Napoli scored 7 goals in the last Champions League group stage. But how could it be otherwise that such performers as Ruiz, Zielinski, Milik, Callejon, Insigne, Mertens are in the attack? By the way, the penultimate one has already scored a double in the net of Fiorentina, and the latter scored in the match against Sampdoria. And it was also a double. Besides, they bought striker Llorente from Tottenham. But the defense is not okay. Napoli conceded in 4 of the last 5 matches.

The current champion of the Champions League has completely retained its attacking line. Salah, Mane, Firmino... All of them are healthy and score in the Premier League. In the last round, the Reds beat Newcastle (3-1). Yes, they beat but conceded a goal. In the current championship, they beat Arsenal, Southampton, and Norwich and conceded from everyone. And Liverpool scored and conceded in the super cups of England and Europe from Manchester City and Chelsea, respectively. In general, the Reds conceded in 12 of the last 13 matches, including a friendly game with Napoli. However, they scored in the last 20 games.
I won’t even think who will win the upcoming match. On the one hand, Liverpool is playing as if there hasn’t been an offseason and it continues the past season, hammering everyone. On the other hand, Napoli will play at home, and it beat Liverpool in the summer. In the last Champions League, rivals exchanged with 1-0 home victories. Salah and Insigne scored, and both will play now. The streak where one of the teams left the field without a goal is likely to be broken in Naples. Having obvious problems in the defense and perfect attacking performers, both teams simply cannot go without goals.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
