Liverpool vs Napoli Prediction
Liverpool took a major step towards their prime objective for practically the last three decades, with a win over closest rivals Manchester City, the last match-day. The win has put them at the top of the table in the EPL, with an eight-point lead. It seems scary that after 12 match-days, the Reds have dropped just two points in total.
With a goal apiece from Fabinho, Mohammed Salah, and Sadio Mane the reigning European champions secured a 3-1 win over Pep Guardiola’s men.
Meanwhile, Napoli could not make anything out of their home advantage, as they took on Genoa, in their latest match-day. The game was part of their Serie A schedule, and including this draw, the team has been on four matches in a row without a victory.
This Wednesday, the Anfield factor will greatly come into play. At home, the Reds are on a ten-match winning streak, and the squad fired in a total of 32 goals from these match-ups. In fact, since February of this year, Jurgen Klopp’s men have not lost a single encounter at home, and to further magnify their chances, the team won 17 of their last 19 overall fixtures.
On the other hand, Napoli are winless in their last five matches in a row, and this whole season, the squad has managed a total of three wins on the road.
Coupling these observations, as well as taking into account the fearsome form Klopp’s men have put on display in front of their home crowd in this season, as well as in the last, expect a victory for the defending champions, Liverpool.
