Jurgen Klopp will be fairly satisfied with the UEFA Champions League draw as his team aim to retain the trophy that they lifted in May, with Napoli, Red Bull Salzburg and Genk the other teams in Group E.

However, the Reds have the toughest possible opener when they travel to the Stadio San Paolo roughly twelve months after losing 1-0 to the Azzurri and failing to register a meaningful shot on target.

The visitors will be looking to provide more of an attacking threat this time around, with Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti successfully managing to nullify the threat of the Merseyside team, largely by operating with three centre-halves.

The Serie A team have began the season in an exciting fashion, triumphing 4-3 at Fiorentina before losing by the same scoreline away to Juventus. Those results might suggest that this game will be similarly high-scoring, although we should note that both matches involving these teams last season ended in a 1-0 scoreline.

Therefore, it could once again be defences on top. Ancelotti will know that it will be difficult to meet fire with fire as far as beating the European champions are concerned, although the Naples side were defensively stingy at home last term and conceded just sixteen goals in nineteen games.

Similarly, Liverpool are a robust outfit who would be happy enough to leave Italy with a point as they begin the defence of their European crown, with Klopp also keeping one eye on domestic affairs where his team have already stolen a slight march on Manchester City.

Therefore, the three midfielders deployed in Naples could include the workmanlike James Milner in an attempt to snuff out the attacking threat of the home team and we’re more than happy to grab a bit of the odds-against that this match only sees two goals or less by the final whistle.
