Liverpool vs Napoli Tips: 

Betting Tip: Napoli to score 2+ goals

So long as Napoli avoid a defeat by a four goal margin when they visit Anfield, they will qualify for the knockout phase having secured top spot in Group A. Gli Azzurri have been absolutely rampant in this competition so far and their tally of 20 goals scored across their five group stage games played so far is more than any other side.

Liverpool have also qualified for the next round and whilst Jurgen Klopp could make changes to his starting 11, they desperately need a good performance after suffering back-to-back losses domestically, including their first home league defeat for 30 matches.

Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti came out and said: “There is a great deal at stake in the next game, because Liverpool are very tough on their own turf. We need to attack them and hold the ball, so that makes it more difficult for them to make the most of their qualities.”  He also suggested that a “spectacle is guaranteed”.

Liverpool are odds on to win this match, which is surprising. However, that means we’re getting a great price on Napoli. However, I’ll play it a little bit safer and side with the visitors scoring at least twice. They have done so in nine of their last 10 matches and I’ll have a point on them doing so again.
