Napoli vs Liverpool LIVE: Champions League Result & Latest Updates Tonight

Klopp hopes for his fourth good fortune at Napoli; rages over ‘awkward question’

Napoli are the target for Liverpool’s first Champions League game of the season which will prove a difficult encounter for Jurgen Klopp’s underperforming side. Klopp’s side have lost their last two visits to Napoli, being beaten here in 2018 and 2019 while also drawing 1-1 with Gli Azzurri at Anfield last season.

Liverpool finished second in the Champions League last season after losing to Real Madrid in the Paris final but have never failed to reach the knockout stages under the German boss. However, the Reds have had an insignificant start to their Premier League season with just two wins from their first six games and appear to be far from their best form.

Meanwhile, Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli have made an excellent start to the season. Despite a summer in which they lost club legends in Kalidou Koulibaly and Dries Mertens, as well as Lorenzo Insigne and Fabian Ruiz, they are second in Serie A after an unbeaten start. Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia lead a redesigned team that has gone into six has scored 12 goals in games, including two in last Saturday’s comeback win against Lazio.

Follow all the action from Napoli vs Liverpool below.


Napoli 0-0 Liverpool

3 mins: Meret tries to push Osimhen backwards with a straight forward pass but Virgil van Dijk intercepts this time and blasts the ball away.

Napoli comes back and flicks the ball at Andre-Frank Anguissa down the left. He pulls the ball back to Matteo Politana, who shoots and deflects his shot wide from James Milner.


Kick-off: Napoli 0-0 Liverpool

Napoli get the game going at Diego Armando Maradona’s stadium. They swipe the ball around the back before goalkeeper Alex Meret flicks it into midfield.

The home side win the ball and play on the right wing to Giovanni Di Lorenzo. Victor Osimhen makes a cutting run through the Liverpool defense and controls the ball as it comes over the top.

Alisson flies out to close it but the striker shoves it around the keeper and jars the post with his side shot!


Jurgen Klopp’s thoughts before the game

Speaking to BT Sport ahead of kick-off, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “It could be, but it’s just as important that you play football here. It could get pretty hectic, emotional, aggressive, things like that, but you have to accept that and react to it.

“It’s not easy to come here because of the atmosphere that people can create here. The only way to dampen that atmosphere a bit is to play well, so we’re going to try that.

“You have what you need. It’s about defending really together, really compact and we have to go and be brave. Everyone has to take responsibility. Offensively we can cause them problems, so let’s try.

“You are always strong. They had a good start to the season and had a good season last year. The main thing is yes, the teams change, but the people here don’t change. They make sure you don’t forget you’re here, and now we know that.”


Jurgen Klopp hopes for luck for fourth time as Liverpool travel to Napoli

Jurgen Klopp hopes he gets lucky for a fourth time as the Liverpool manager finally looks to win at Napoli when last season’s Champions League finalists begin their quest for continental glory on Wednesday.

It has been just over three months since the Reds suffered a 1-0 defeat by Real Madrid in the final on a night marred by chaotic scenes outside the Stade de France.

Liverpool have been drawn alongside Ajax, Rangers and Napoli this time and will start Group A against the latter on Wednesday night at the cavernous Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

But Klopp hasn’t had the best of times on his previous visits to Napoli, having lost 2-1 with Borussia Dortmund in 2013 before losing 1-0 to the Reds in 2018 and 2-0 the following year.


Good memories of Napoli

Liverpool have lost just one of their last 12 opening games in a Champions League season – although that was at Napoli in 2019/20.

The Reds also lost here the season before and are yet to win in Naples under Jurgen Klopp.


FT Ajax 4-0 Rangers

Against Rangers, Mohamed Kudus became just the seventh player in 15 years to both score and assist in a Champions League game and not miss a single pass.

He was the first since Serge Gnabry in 2020 against Barcelona.


Milner starts for Liverpool

James Milner captains the Reds tonight after making his 600th Premier League appearance against Everton at the weekend.

The 36-year-old told the club’s website after the game: “I’m feeling good and they’ve been retired for a long time, so I want to play as long as I can.

“Let’s face it, there are worse places to play football than Liverpool Football Club. It’s great to be here, I’m enjoying the pressure and I’m enjoying the ride.”


Naples vs Liverpool

Rangers have suffered back-to-back 4-0 defeats in their last two games and their Champions League season has got off to the worst possible start.

The reaction to Rangers’ defeat is yet to come, but the focus shifts to Italy as Liverpool prepare to face Napoli in their opening game in Europe.


Full-time: Ajax 4-0 Rangers

90+3 mins: It was a shocking and painful return to the Champions League for Rangers. They were played out of the park by Ajax and the Dutch champions put them to the sword in an incredibly one-sided evening in Amsterdam.

The Scottish side need to regroup and refocus ahead of their next group game against Napoli. The games are coming close and fast this year and another loss there will surely put their hopes of a place in the knockout rounds out of reach.


Ajax 4-0 Rangers
