Confirmed Liverpool XI to face Napoli: Klopp picks a very strong team
Liverpool travel to Naples to face a tough Napoli side and get their Champions League credentials tested in a hostile environment. The Stadio San Paolo is a very rough place for any away team to play because of the home crowd creating a kind of environment which rather scares the opposition.
If Jurgen Klopp’s men go past this test with flying colours, they would be well set for future challenges in Europe and also in the Premier League. The Reds boast a terrific league record, winning six of the seven games played, drawing the other at Stamford Bridge.
Playing against a high-intensity team like Napoli won’t be an easy task. Carlo Ancelotti and his men will try and do everything in their powers to unsettle this Liverpool team and make it uncomfortable for the visitors.
Klopp’s men need to make sure that they get off to a good start, which will allow them to settle into the environment and play their natural game. Both teams are expected to press high and hard to win back possession, hence, a frantic game is on the offing for us. The side with better stamina and game awareness could eventually get three points.
A firecracker of a match which could go either way. Champions League nights are indeed special!
Here’s the Liverpool line-up to face Napoli:
