  • Date: 07/09/2022
  • Competition: Champions League
  • KO: 18:45 CET
  • Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona (Napoli)

Having been held to a somewhat frustrating Merseyside derby draw by Everton, Liverpool travels to the Diego Armando Maradona stadium to take on on-form Napoli.

With just 2 wins from their first 6 league matches of the season, Liverpool have yet to discover the dominant and consistent form which saw them reach all 3 major cup finals while collecting over 90 points in the PL. 

Currently sitting top of Serie A (at the time of writing), having claimed a fine 2:1 win in Rome against Lazio on Saturday, Napoli remains unbeaten domestically however they find themselves in a potentially tough CL group with Rangers and Ajax completing Group A. 

Napoli vs Liverpool Betting Tips: Napoli or draw/BTTS

Liverpool returns to Naples for the third time in 4 years, having lost both previous matches back in 2018 and 2019, and they should expect another tough contest on Wednesday.

Napoli have certainly looked strong in the early part of the season, although they did drop 2 points in their most recent home league match against Lecce but bounced back to form with that big win in Rome this past weekend. 

In this competition, Napoli have lost just 1 of their last 11 home fixtures, with only Man City leaving Naples with a victory since Real Madrid won here in 2017. Barcelona, Liverpool (twice) and PSG have all failed to win at this venue in recent years.

Liverpool are of course, strong on the road in the CL, winning 9 of their last 11 away CL matches, including each of the last 5, while they have only failed to score in 1 of their last 14 away CL matches since a 2:0 loss to Napoli in 2019. Liverpool have also seen BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored in 6 of their last 7 away CL matches.

Ultimately, this looks a tough fixture to call, but BTTS and Napoli or draw are both appealing selections, with Napoli in great form and Liverpool reliable on the road in the goals market, particularly in this competition.
