Napoli vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report

Jurgen Klopp

After failing to get out of the group stage previous year, Napoli know they will have to beat Liverpool and PSG to advance.

"The timing for our defensive movements was not good enough, we didn't close the space in the right moment, we didn't react in the right situation, and so they could play through".

Jurgen Klopp's side have the trip to Italy either side of tough Premier League fixtures and he needs his squad at full strength. It's a good lesson for us to get better.

The Liverpool manager was also in the dark over the reasons for his team's uncharacteristic performance in the Champions League, which left them level on points with Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain.

"They were calmer than us on the ball, they defended well and stopped us creating chances". I hope this victory can build confidence and make us play with more freedom'.

"That's the second time this season that we have conceded a goal like that, then they were on their bikes, the atmosphere was there because we let them do what they did. I think we'll need the flawless match".

I put in Maksimovic to avoid the strong pressure Liverpool forwards tend to put on us.

Keita transferred to Liverpool in the summer from RB Leipzig for £52.75 million and joins Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the ranks of their injured midfielders.

At that time Liverpool were in the less prestigious Europa League and faced off against Napoli in the group stages of the competition, claiming a drab 0-0 draw in Italy. I see the quality this team has, but with a little tension we don't express ourselves the way we should.

Klopp hinted Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were not dynamic enough in the attacking third, on a night when Mohamed Salah failed to fire once again. That happens. We don't have to think about intensity.
