Definitely, Group C is the most intriguing this season. Three of the four teams have a chance to play in the knockout stage of the Champions League, while Red Star have an opportunity to qualify for the Europa League. Until this game, Napoli are on the first place in the group without a loss, but eventual defeat against Liverpool can throw them away from the competition.
Liverpool have won just two games – their home games against Red Star and PSG. The Reds lost their all away games. Napoli are performing amazingly until this match, and the team don’t have a defeat. It will be a pity if The Blues do not play in the next round of the tournament with an eventual loss versus Liverpool.
The Reds will be playing for a win. A 1-0 result will be perfect for them, or at least with two goals difference. The players of Napoli will have to attack to make their opponent’s job harder. If The Blues score, Liverpool will be forced to attack so they can win with at least two goals difference.
At first glance this game can’t be predicted easily – Napoli will defend while Liverpool will attack. We give a slight advantage for the home team and will predict a match with not many goals and an advantage for the home team. I will back Double Chance – Liverpool to Win or Draw and Under 3.5 goals, with Liverpool 2-1 Correct Score.
