Champions League Group E
8:00pm Tuesday 17th September

San Paolo
(Att: 38878)

As Liverpool made a slow start to their Champions League 24, late goals from Fernando Llorente and Dries Mertens earned a success to Napoli.
From the group point in Naples, the side of Jurgen Klopp had been beaten for the next season in a row – final October, that they lost 1-0 – and it was sloppy defending that watched the Group E game slip away from them.
The Reds had defended stoutly against several ongoing pressure from the home side, but were unlucky to be penalized after Jose Callejon skipped inside of Andy Robertson prior to making the majority of minimal contact with the Liverpool defender and, as soon as a VAR inspection failed to provide the people a reprieve, Dries Mertens took full advantage to conquer Adrian in the place.
Since Liverpool pushed for a late equaliser, nicely into five moments of added-on time Fernando Llorente doubled the lead from a rare Virgil van Dijk error, profiting when the guardian’s mis-hit pass ran into his path and he slotted the ball home into spark wild celebrations on the house bench with success sealed – and also the reigning champions defeated their first game for the first time since AC Milan in 1994.
Liverpool were hoping for better compared to their limp showing in the Stadio San Paolo previous year, but found themselves trapped on the break early on when, as they’d have emphasized, Lorenzo Insigne found space in behind Trent Alexander-Arnold, however out of his pull-back Fabian double pulled easy saves out of Adrian from a fantastic place.
Liverpool reacted when Jordan Henderson’s lob discovered Sadio Mane unmarked on the edge of the box, however, his heavy touch took him wide of Alex Meret’s article also, from a tight angle, it was easy enough for the goalkeeper to flip his effort around the post with his legs.
There was more although it took a last-gasp struggle to take the ball to shout about from either side before the rest as he prepared to shoot.
The second half didn’t take to liven up. It was less than four minutes old when Liverpool were indebted to a save from Adrian to remain level, with all the goalkeeper somehow tipping over Mertens’ far-post header after he looked sure to score.
When the people did get chances their entrance three seemed out of sorts; it was ended up when Mane hung on the ball prior to over-hitting across a easy pass into the devious Mo Salah, since Liverpool broke.
Liverpool were left to rue those strikes that were misfiring when Callejon chose a tumble out of Robertson under stress, the referee pointed to the place and the corner was discovered by Mertens, even though a respectable effort from Adrian.
It was already looking like a case of deja vu for Liverpool at this point, but things got worse in added time after Van Dijk’s uncharacteristic error set up Llorente, who’d been around the conquered Spurs side in last season’s final, to slot beneath Adrian and seal three points for the hosts.
Former Liverpool defender Phil Babb told The Debate:”It was comfy, they created chances, I think they had four to target which was an improvement from last season when they only had one, so I presume. Nevertheless, it wasn’t a Liverpool performance that is standard; we didn’t see Andy Robertson or Trent Alexander-Arnold bombing forward.
“Sadio Mane appeared sharp, Mo Salah looked sharp occasionally, they did create chances but it was a masterclass from Kalidou Koulibaly – that was similar to the Virgil van Dijk of past year, also Liverpool got no pleasure from him. It ended up being a few sucker-punches.
“After that Adrian save, you believed yeah, coming from this 0-0, it’s a fantastic point, but sadly they lost it”
Liverpool are reside on Super Sunday if they see Chelsea in the 4.30pm kick-off, on Sky Sports Premier League.
