Napoli vs Liverpool Betting Tips
Napoli and Liverpool meet again! These two played in the same group last season as well. But, this time, instead of PSG and Red Star, they’re competing against Salzburg and Genk for a place in the knockouts. It’s needless to say that Napoli and Liverpool are ginormous favorites to advance to the knockout stage of the Champions League. The big question is who’s going to finish at the top of the group table?
The reigning Champions League champions are given better chances for that, although no one can say Napoli don’t deserve to be there. This season, Napoli seem incredibly strong in all aspects of the game, which makes them a serious contender for the Italian Serie A title. When it comes to the Champions League, they’re not given too high chances, although many think of this team as one of the potential dark horses of the championship.
The thing about Napoli is that they have some really amazing players in the team, led by one of the best managers of our times, Carlo Ancelotti. As a result, this team seems capable of beating literally any opponent on the planet. Especially when they’re playing in front of their own crowd.
Actually, the last time they played Liverpool at San Paolo, Napoli were the winners. The score was 1:0 in October last year, which is something that’s giving their players a lot of confidence ahead of Tuesday’s clash.
Liverpool, on the other hand, seem capable of beating anyone anywhere. Travelling to Italy should not make their players nervous; they got the talent on their side and have every right to be confident of getting points from this game. Or, at least one point.

Although the season 2019-20 of the Italian Serie A has only recently started, Napoli have been pretty impressive, especially in the attacking apartment. They scored four against Fiorentina in the opening round, in a game they won 4:3. They lost to Juventus in the following round, but they did manage to score three goals in Turin. And despite allowing so many goals, their strongest point still is their defense, where they got such strong defenders as Koulibaly and Manolas.
