UEFA Champions League is back! The 2019-20 campaign kicks off today and we can’t wait. There are several good matches lined up for the opening day.

Liverpool are scheduled to meet Napoli away from home in Group E fixture. Liverpool have won all 5 leagues matches and are at the top of the EPL table, while, Napoli have won two of three Serie A fixtures. Both teams are scoring for fun, so it’s going to be a good encounter.

Here are the last four meetings (competitive) between the clubs:

  1. Napoli 0:0 Liverpool (21st October 2010)
    Venue: San Paolo, Naples
    Competition: UEFA Europa League, Group K

It was a hard-fought goalless draw. Roy Hodgson’s Liverpool did well to contain Walter Mazzarri’s Napoli side, consisting of fierce attackers in Cavani, Lavezzi, and Hamsik away from home.

  1. Liverpool 3:1 Napoli (4th November 2010)
    Venue: Anfield, Liverpool
    Competition: UEFA Europa League, Group K

In the reverse fixture, Liverpool came on top courtesy of Steven Gerrard hattrick. Napoli’s Ezequiel Lavezzi scored first (28’) but Steven Gerrard’s late hattrick ruined their party. Gerrard equalized in the 75th minute and the game was headed towards a draw. But Napoli gave away a penalty in the 88th minute and Gerrard made no mistake from the spot. And just a minute later Gerrard completed his hattrick and won the game for the home team.

This win eventually helped Liverpool finish as the group leaders.

  1. Napoli 1:0 Liverpool (3rd October 2018)
    Venue: San Paolo, Naples
    Competition: UEFA Champions League, Group C

Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli side completely dominated the match against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. Napoli had 57% possession, and they tried 14 shots with 5 on target, while Liverpool had just 4 shots attempted with none on target. However, due to some resilience from Liverpool, Napoli could score just one- a 90th min goal by Lorenzo Insigne.

  1. Liverpool 1: Napoli (11th December 2018)
    Venue: Anfield, Liverpool
    Competition: UEFA Champions League, Group C

It was a crucial game for Liverpool. They had to win the match to survive in the competition. And they came guns blazing. They scored early via Mohamed Salah’s goal in the 34th minute. They were constantly attacking. But they couldn’t get a second. However, their defense and Goalkeeper Alisson were sharp and didn’t let the away team score.

Liverpool qualified for the knockout rounds and then went on to win the title.
