Liverpool vs Napoli Betting Tips
The reigning champions of the Champions League is on the good road to get to the knockout stage of this competition. With 9 points, Liverpool are at the top spot in Group E. They did lose one game in this championship so far, but it happened in the first round. After that defeat, they won three games in a row. But, the game they lose in the first round, they lost to their next opponent, Napoli.
Obviously, Liverpool want revenge. And considering how great their form has been, the Reds are huge favorites in this match. They have been in a really impressive form lately, with the peak of that good run being the win over Manchester City in the Premier League.
Another thing that makes Liverpool a huge favorite against Napoli is that this match is played at the Anfield. At home, Liverpool are without a defeat for a really long time, winning most of the time. And considering that Napoli aren’t too great away from home, Liverpool seem destined to win this match.
The good news for Liverpool don’t end there. Arguably their best player, Mohamed Salah is back after a slight injury. He was out for the game with Crystal Palace last weekend, which the Reds managed to win nevertheless. Napoli, on the other hand, failed to beat AC Milan last weekend. Actually, they’re lucky to have won a point in that match, considering how poor they’ve been lately.
Napoli are without a win since October. One of the reasons why they aren’t playing well is that there’s an ongoing feud between the players and their manager on one side and the club owners on the other. The situation in the club is very bad and they don’t seem too motivated to give their utmost. They’re going to the North of England, without too many ambitions. And that’s the final reason why Liverpool win seems like a real banker.

The Reds have been amazing in the final third, scoring at least two goals in each of their previous 7 matches in all competitions. What’s not so impressive is the fact that they’ve allowed at least a goal in each of their previous 10 matches. Still, there’s no arguing that they have an amazing defense, so Napoli probably won’t be able to score too many goals.
