Napoli to Win

Napoli have been a breath of fresh air in this season’s Champions League, winning each of their five games to date and scoring 20 goals in the process. The Italians have won each of their five games by at least two goals, winning four of their five games by three goals or more.

They demolished Liverpool in Naples in the opening game of the Champions League and will be confident of sealing six wins from six against Jurgen Klopp’s side on Tuesday night.

Despite that opening day hammering, Liverpool have found some solace in Europe in what has been a miserable season to date.

The Reds have won each of their last four games in the competition to book their place in the knockout stages and keep their faint hopes of topping the group alive. Liverpool will top the group if they win by four goals or more on Tuesday, but that is incredibly unlikely given the respective form of both sides.

Napoli are undefeated in all competitions this season and have won each of their last 13 games in a run of results stretching back to the beginning of September.

Liverpool, who have lost back-to-back league games against Nottingham Forest and Leeds, could fall to another damaging defeat.

Both Teams to Score

Napoli boast one of the best defensive records in Italy and in the Champions League, but they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their three games so far against competent opposition, only managing shut outs in their two games against Rangers.

Liverpool, who scored a consolation in their 4-1 hammering in Naples, have scored in every Champions League game this season.

Liverpool have also managed to score in every game at Anfield in all competitions this season.

Napoli’s Champions League games have been goal-filled this season and there is no reason to think that will change on Tuesday.

Giacomo Raspadori to Score Anytime

Giacomo Raspadori is enjoying a very strange season in terms of finding the back of the net.

The Italian forward has only managed one goal in eight Serie A appearances for Napoli this season but has scored four times from three starts in the Champions League, including three goals in Napoli’s two away games in the competition to date.

Raspadori has found himself down the pecking order in Napoli’s title charge and should see himself selected for what is almost a dead rubber on Tuesday.

He can continue to build on his impressive goalscoring record in Europe at Anfield.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia Anytime Assist

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been one of the most exciting players in Europe in the opening months of the season.

The Georgian winger has scored eight goals and provided eight assists in 15 assists this season, tormenting defences in Italy and Europe alike.

Kvaratskhelia provided one assist in the 4-1 win over Liverpool in September and can similarly torment the English side on Tuesday night.

He was left out of Napoli’s 3-0 win over Rangers last time out, but Rangers are so bad that you could forgive Luciano Spalletti for resting some of his key players.

Kvaratskhelia scored once and provided two assists in Napoli’s 4-0 win over Sassuolo at the weekend and can continue that impressive form on Tuesday night.
