      Tough match this and I'd take a point as I expect us to beat them in the return fixture.

      1 all for me in a hard fought contest.

      NB: Team no longer available

      Pretty sure this will be the team. Don’t think any chances will be taken with Robbo and seems like the type of game where Jürgen would elect to go with Gomez.

      I fancy us to just sneak a win as I think pound for pound we are the better team and we are full of confidence at the moment.

      Going 0-1 for this one.

      If I remember correctly in last season's game  I don't think we were anywhere near our best and correct me if I'm wrong one of our worst games of the season,

      Anyhoo, it don't matter cos like us they will go through to the knockout stages without too much ado, it's only a matter of who finishes top,
      I don't fear anyone in the CL, not f***in one, Juve,  RM, Barca, bring it f***in on,

      I'm going for 1-2 win, why, because we can.

      They're a good side.. probably one of the toughest opponents we faced on the way to Madrid last season.
      Anchelotti has them well organised and they have a couple of top players who can turn the game for them.
      If I remember rightly last time we played them on their own ground, Jürgen set up for the away point and we never really troubled them in the final third. Then they whipped our ass in time added on to poach the winner from us and take all 3 points.

      I just don't see Jürgen making that same judgement with the line up and set up tonight.
      Plus the fact, we have the most potent front three on the planet right now and If they move and rotate like they did against Newcastle on Saturday, Mr Koulibaly and his back four need to be on their game.

      We need fear no one in this competition.
      We are the unbearables !!! and more importantly, we are the European Champions.

      I think the story of our first two seasons back in the Champions League is that we start very slowly and end up in the final.

      To be honest, if we smash these 5-0 I'd be concerned we had peaked too soon.

      Seems strange considering we are on such a winning streak but I'd take a point.  Let's face it, Napoli are going to be well more up for this than us after we knocked them out of the tournament last year.

      Looking forward to it, seems like a bit of a free hit. 

      If I remember correctly in last season's game  I don't think we were anywhere near our best and correct me if I'm wrong one of our worst games of the season,

      For me, it was our worst performance of last season.

      I find these games relaxing for some reason. I'm so much more nervous for league games these days!

      We cannot be any worse than last year and I think Fabinho & Hendo in this years midfield should help.

      Start of another campaign , can we do the unthinkable and get to our third in a row ,? Any sort of run with players staying fit and there won’t be many relishing taking us on , we’ve got our mojo back and it’s time to relish it
      Cmon you red men .

      Thought as much JD,  like you rightly said we start slow and improve as we go on, I'm sure there was a time last season that we were in danger of not qualifying , so yeah finding your peak is tantamount to succeed further up the pipe.


      I think we'll see this side tonight, no real surprises....

                              Adrian
              Gomez Matip VvD Milner
                               Fabinho
                   Hendo               Gini
               Salah     Firmino     Mane


      It'll be as tight as a nun's punani, but i think we will win 1-2, good side this and they will test us no doubt,
      Bobby & Salah with the goodies.

      MON REDMEN!!!

      I genuinely can’t see Klopp losing a two legged tie and we should qualify from this group - we’re going to another European final boys!

      This could be a tough game. But it obviously won't define our C/L campaign.They did us pre season so they will be confident. We have to keep it tight. Do a job on them, not our game but staying a bit deeper and hit them on the break could be the way.

      I've heard a few reds have been attacked over there in a bar including one lad getting a crow bar over the head. Hope all Reds stay safe out there. Think we'll nick a tight game 2-1

      Last year, they set up to contain and hit us on the break, but opened up when they saw how disjointed we were.

      I expect Ancelotti to be just as cagey, and I expect us to keep things tight.

      I think it might be quite a boring game, with one side sneaking a win, or a a bore draw.
      I'm not fussed if we draw, it would be nice to get a point on the board.
      A win would be a cracking start, but I don't see us going all out for it.

      These nutters have no place in football, they should be weeded out and given a life long ban, from attending any sort of sporting event. I hope that the lads are ok.

      After seeing John Stones out for over a month I think one of the aims tonight should be getting through it without an injury!
