Liverpool kickstart their Champions League campaign this week against Napoli. The Reds will be looking to reach the final of the competition for the second straight season, but they will be looking to go one better after losing in last season’s final against Real Madrid.
Before Betting On Napoli vs Liverpool
There will be an interesting game in the Champions League to kick off the group stages this week, as Liverpool look to get off to a winning start against Napoli. These two sides are no strangers to one another, as it will be the third time in five seasons that Liverpool and Napoli have clashed in the group stages of the Champions League.
Napoli has a good record in recent meetings, as they have won their home fixture against the Reds on two occasions, with their most recent success being a 2-0 success in the 2019-20 season. The Italian giants also have an excellent home record against Premier League sides, as they have picked up wins in five of the previous six meetings. Their only defeat came against Manchester City in 2017.
Liverpool do have a solid record in Italy, as they have won their previous three away games against Italian opposition. That includes victories in Milan from last season, as they beat both Inter and AC Milan on their way to the final of the competition. The Reds did dominante their group stage campaign last season though, as they became the first English team to win all six games. However, no English side has ever won seven straight group stage fixtures.
