Napoli vs Liverpool
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 3 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Napoli).
Napoli are going to host Liverpool in the second round of the Champions League group stage on Wednesday evening.
Once again, the hosts are the biggest title challengers in the Serie A and the team with the biggest chances to steal the trophy from Juventus, however they are six points behind the top spot. Carlo Ancelotti’s side lost in the latest derby clash against the title holders although they had an early lead.
Napoli have been doing well in the front, but they need to improve their defending. In the opening round of the top continental competition, home side didn’t manage to come back from Belgrade with a win as Red Star held them to a goalless draw.
Liverpool are one of the top favourites for lifting the trophy and they’ve started their domestic and continental campaigns very successfully. They are sitting on the top of the Premier League with Manchester City after snatching a point from the trip to London when they faced Chelsea.
Mohamed Salah and the lads are clinical in front of the opposition’s goal, while their defence is pretty tight. The visitors booked a victory in the opening round of this competition as Roberto Firmino scored a late goal for their 3-2 win over PSG.
Napoli vs Liverpool: Head-to-head
The crowd was able to enjoy three matches of these two sides and Liverpool celebrated in two occasions.

Napoli vs Liverpool: Prediction
This is one of derby matches of the round and it is going to be super exciting. Both sides will be searching for a win, but we believe the visitors are closer to taking all three point which will keep them on the top spot.
Both sides have been involved in high scoring matches lately and in this one, the fans should hope of enjoying many goals. Their last two encounters were very efficient ones and this match should also go over 2.5 margin.
