Tip Reasoning

  • Liverpool were beaten 2-0 by Napoli in the teams’ reverse Group E fixture.
  • Liverpool have yet to keep a single clean sheet at home this season.
  • Napoli failed to score only once in their last eight matches.
  • Liverpool are looking for their 18th straight win at home in all competitions.

Liverpool out for revenge

The top two clubs in Champions League Group E go head-to-head at Anfield on Wednesday when Liverpool entertain Napoli in an eagerly anticipated Merseyside meeting.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds maintained their phenomenally consistent run of results with a hard-fought 2-1 over Crystal Palace at the weekend – an outcome that extended the club’s unbeaten run to 13 matches in all competitions.

Liverpool’s last defeat came all the way back on September 17th, when they were comfortably outplayed and eventually dispatched 2-0 by their opponents this week Napoli in Naples.

The current European champions went on to win 12 of their 13 games after their chasing in Italy, though behind the results, some of the Reds’ performances have been far from convincing.

Napoli’s recent struggles

Luckily for Liverpool, they meet a Napoli side in the midst of a dreadful run of form this week. The Partenopei are without a win in six games, and even though they finished level in five of those contests, things have been looking and feeling decidedly flat for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

On the road, things have been looking similarly grim for Napoli, and the Serie A giants take a recent record of one win in six away games to the home of a Liverpool team that has won 17 fixtures at Anfield on the trot.

An against the odds upset on Wednesday is unlikely then, though Napoli should be presented with ample opportunities to notch a consolation goal against their Premier League hosts.

Liverpool’s leaky Anfield defence

Remarkably, despite their incredible overall results, Liverpool are still searching for their first competitive clean sheet at Anfield this season.

The Reds have contested 10 games in front of the Kop this term, conceding at least once in each outing, and while Napoli remain out of form, the fact that they failed to score only once in their last eight matches suggests their goal-scoring threat remains potent.

With the aforementioned factors digested, we think the Liverpool and both teams to score combination represents the best avenue of approach for Wednesday’s game, while our correct score prediction settles on a 2-1 Liverpool win.

The Reds rattled the net exactly twice in three of their last five home games, though Napoli’s defence statistics are much more salient to prediction. Ancelotti’s charges conceded more than once in only three of their last fifteen matches, and the Italians shipped just 0.75 goals on average per Champions League fixture since August.
