The boss of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp will be predicted to avoid déjà vu feeling at the time takes the side to play against Napoli in their group stage opener match of the Champions League. In May, Reds move to the European campaign as holders after prevailing over Tottenham in the final but he will be cautious of the threat that coming from the Carlo Ancelotti squad.

Liverpool had a tight clash with Partenopei having the score of 1-0 just 12 months ago; this gave Liverpool a tough task to deal for qualifying before the reverse of 1-0 at Anfield. After winning all five opening matches of Premier League they have played, the team of Klopp come into the match in overwhelming form and they will be keen on to set everything right at the SanPaolo for keeping their run moving on.

New and Predictions Related to Team

During the 3-1 win against Newcastle, Divock Origi limp off and it is expected that he will miss the Naples trip with Rhian Brewster and he was called from the Under-23s squad to go with the senior team to Italy. To the side of that, there is the full squad with Klopp to select from albeit the coach of Germany is not likely to stay too far from his toughest line-up.

However, it is still not clear, whether Klopp will go on with Trent Alexander-Arnold, who will play at the right-back or will replace him with Joe Gomez. Arkadiusz Milik might probably miss out because of injury but Lorenzo Insigne has recovered from injury and he will return to the team after that.

Prediction: 1-1 for Napoli and Liverpool
