UCL: Liverpool FC


Liverpool will welcome Napoli right at home to Anfield, this is an important match to win the top spot in the context that they are the two teams with the most impressive performance of Group E Champion League this year and also occupied  2 leading positions.  Will the reigning champion of the Champions League show their strength to the opponent and pay the feud they have borrowed in the first leg or the Napoli team will once again defeat the home team.


It can be said that Liverpool is a team that does not have any clubs to face at the present time, the defending champion of the Champions League is showing an extremely convincing play with an unbeaten series.  with 13 consecutive matches this season including 11 wins.  In the domestic arena, Jurgen Klopp's army is showing its absolute strength with 12 wins and 1 draw when the tournament has just gone through 13 rounds.  They recently won the match with a narrow score of 2-1 against Crystal Palace players, although this is a difficult game because they have to play away from home but the shine of individuals like Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino  brought back 3 full points for the Reds.  The attack is a strong point for Liverpool players when they have scored 50 goals in total in the tournament, in which the trio Mane, Salad, Firmino have a total of 18 goals in the Premier League.  Besides, their fans can be completely assured of the defense under the command of Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.

Despite the victory in the first leg against Liverpool, the recent form of Napoli has really brought disappointment to their fans.  In Serie A for 5 consecutive games they did not know the smell of victory and ranked only 7th in the rankings, recently they have split points before AC Milan players in a match despite having a lead of H.  Lozano in the 24th minute but they could not preserve the score by Giacomo Bonavetura on the AC Milan side in an excellent day, which kept 1 point for the home team.  Back in the Champions League, Napoli has the best defense in the table with only 3 goals conceded but the attack is quite expensive with only 6 goals.  Away from home is always the death zone with Carlo Ancelotti's army when they have lost the last 4/6 times to play away from home.
