Reason for Napoli vs Liverpool Predictions
Napoli, five games into their new season, currently leads the way in the Serie A table, ahead of defending champions AC Milan on goal difference with both sides on 11 points. The Italian side reached the top of the pile with a 2-1 win away at Lazio on the weekend, though Atalanta does sit just a point behind with a game in hand. The two teams have been drawn together recently in both the group stage of the 2018-19 and 2019-20 competitions, with Napoli leading the head-to-head 2-1 from those four games, with one draw. Piotr Zielinski plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Dries Mertens is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance. Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just one fitness concern for the Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti to be concerned about, thanks to an otherwise robust group. Diego Demme (Foot Injury) will miss out. Diego Demme cannot play in this game through suspension.
Last season’s runners-up, Liverpool, travel to Italy to take on the current Serie A leaders Napoli. Jurgen Klopp’s side finishes as runners-up in both last season’s Champions League and Premier League but has been unable to replicate their form of last season so far in this current campaign. The Reds currently sit in seventh place in the table with just two league wins to their name so far. The six-time Champions League winners go into Wednesday’s game off the back of a goalless draw with neighbours Everton, and thought has lost just once in seven games in all competitions so far this season. Fabinho has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Diogo Jota is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance. Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has not got a full squad to pick from. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Hamstring Injury), Naby Keïta (Muscle Injury), and Thiago (Hamstring Injury) won’t be making appearances.
There are no favorites in this match, and we won’t be surprised if this clash could end in a draw.
This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams. Football fans should enjoy this match and see at least a goal in each net.
