      Pre-Match: S.S.C. Napoli Vs. Liverpool: CL Match Day 1; Wed 7 Sept, KO 20.00
      Sep 05, 2022 12:09:26 pm
      VS
      S.S.C. Napoli    Liverpool



      A return to Naples for us on Wednesday, last time we were beaten 2-0, with if I remember some dodgy decisions, payback for sure must be on the cards, but with our current form, who knows.

      Hopefully we will have some players back from injury, but alas, we have lost some more. Betting as us Evens to win, Napoli 3/1 and 3/1 the draw, make what of that if you will.

      Napoli are currently top the Serie A Table, unbeaten, W3 D2 L0, with a GD of +8 so we are defiantly in for a hard game on the pitch, and of course on the terraces too.

      Last time we were there can be watched here,
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfRlns_ndes

      And the pre and post match threads can be perused id you so wish here.
      PRE: https://www.lfcreds.com/reds/index.php/topic,51184.msg2265911.html#msg2265911
      POST https://www.lfcreds.com/reds/index.php/topic,51185.msg2266041.html#msg2266041

      Interesting, the team that night consisted of:
       
      Adrian,
       Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson,
      Fabinho, Milner, Henderson,
      Mane, Salah, Firmino.

      .... which baring injuries we could play on Wednesday, baring Mane, obviously this won't be close to the team put out.

      So fingers and toes crossed, gonna be a bumpy ride for sure.

      Very tough game, Napoli are playing good (top of Serie A) and Naples is a tough away trip. With out form being so out of sorts as much as 3 points would be great to kick start something a draw wouldn't be the worst result

      At the minute, I'd take a draw away from these right now, a win could give us a massive boost though against decent opposition.

      Away draw would be a decent start to the group.

      But were always capable of winning anywhere.

      Expect a Salah goal or 2.

      I would play Firmino from the start but do not know what position I would play him.

      Play Melo to see how he plays. He knows a thing or two since he was with Juve.

      Could be the ideal game to Start Melo, for obvious reasons. Nunez starts for me, has to get fully up to speed. I'd rest Mo, Boss has Diaz, Jota & Bobby plus Nunez. Mo could do with a breather or as Bowling did, 'coming up for air'.

      Would we consider Napoli a bit of a boogie team. Seem to remember them causing us problems in recent games.
      Taking nothing for granted here. Not sure how many we can 'rest' either, so just hope the lads can up their performance game on game.

      I'd settle for a draw here considering our history vs this lot.  They are not as good as previous seasons ( according to my neighbor who is from Napoli ) haha

      I'd love to see a 4-2-3-1
      get our defending in order first Clean sheets win games , at least they did when we won the league ...
       let the front 4 come up with a goal or 2

      Gomez Matip VVD Robbo

        Fabinho      Arthur

      Mo    Bobby     Diaz

               Darwin

      Impact subs - Elliot , Jota , TAA  , Carvalho (if fit)

      Do not want Milly starting , as much as i love the guy

      Will be a tough match but we can pull it off.

      First things first, to all reds in Naples tonight and tomorrow night, stay safe.  A very moody place with a section of absolutely moronic people.

      Secondly, no idea which Liverpool are going to turn up - although recent form suggests the lethargic slow starting one will. 

      Hopefully the Champions League music before kick off activates some kind of internal switch inside them and they enjoy a dominant (and injury free) 90 minutes.

      Great to hear Thiago is back in training ahead of this one, hopefully we don't need him to play but maybe he gets a few minutes. Same too for Jota. I suspect we will see Melo at some stage and it's always good to blood players in Europe rather than straight into the EPL I think.

      I'd be happy with a draw away at their place and reckon we will get a result. Hoping to see some fluency and movement back in our play. i reckon it'll be a 1-1 draw myself.

      It suddenly feels like we have options with

      Arthur, Thiago and Jota back. Thiago and Jota especially, f**king massive players for us.

      I’m on my knees praying Thiago stays injury free.

      Could be a welcome distraction from our sluggish league form. Napoli will probably fancy their chances so it could open things up for us. I don't know why but I fully expect us to win, although a draw wouldn't be a bad result.

      Thiago looking sharp, however Jones and Carvalho out

      Fabio another Everton casualty.

      Always tough going here, don’t expect anything different tonight, definitely our hardest opponent in the group stage so for me the performance tonight outweighs the result, if we can get a win here we can probably book a place in the KO stage, a draw would be absolutely fine, and a defeat though not ideal won’t put us out of the comp,

      It’s not in our mind set to sit back but I think Jürgen will play it cool, I’m going with a midfield trio of Fabinho, Milner & Bobby, with Nunez & Lucho & Mo up top, and the usual suspects at the back, absolutely no reason to change apart from rotating Robbo & Kostas, if Calvin was ready we’d probably see rotation there too with Trent, so we could see Matip on laters with Joe going RB, no way will Jimmy last 90+,

      Haven’t done too well here in the past so I’m erring on the side of caution and would be ecstatic with a draw, cannot see either Ajax or Rangers getting anything there, so drawing will give us kudos over them two,


                                       Allison
                          Trent   Gomez  Virgil  Robbo
                                Milner    Fabinho
                                       Bobby
                            Salah   Nunez   Diaz


      Bench; Adrian, Matip, Kostas, Ramsey, Thiago, Melo, Jones, Elliot, Bajcetic, Jota


      Like I said performance for me is more important for us going forward,slowly slowly we are getting back to somewhere near a more familiar look & feel, we have to consider also the slight change in attack, Nunez will take another 2/3 games to settle in and for everyone else to acclimatise, we still aren’t at full strength so I’m certainly not expecting us to be as free flowing, so indeed a draw or even better a win would be a fantastic result.


      1-1


      C’mon Redmen  !!!

      My predictions have been off the mark this season. Therefore I am going for a draw hoping that I am proved wrong and the Reds come away with a win.

      Why belittle Nunez, OK he messed up V Palace but give the lad a chance. If he doesn't make it here it should not be for want off support.

      What’s with the ‘Carroll’s Sister sh*t bud ? Unlike you to be belittling new fish, anyhoo, can’t see Elliot starting, too tough a game for him, he’s a lightweight for this game and will get found out very quickly, we need a solid engine room for this hence Fabinho & Milner, and Bobby tracks back well too,

      In our current guise I agree a win seems a bridge too far but then, we are Liverpool and we are capable of anything, fancy a draw myself, which will be just fine.

      Why would we sign someone with a sh*t touch, surely it’s just a confidence thing.

      He has strengths but his first touch and close control isn’t great. It’s not a new thing either,  seen plenty of evidence from his Benfica days. I don’t think the guy lacks confidence either so not sure that’s an excuse. I share the same reservations about him based on his start but here’s hoping he can prove me wrong. To be fair, I actually thought he played fairly well against Everton. Get him involved tonight and hopefully he can build on it.

      Won't hold a high line tonight so Trent will come under pressure, some say he's not a great defensive right back but he'll have to turn up tonight and if his game is not there, games like tonight will expose that.

      Our midfield will have to graft and fight, snarl it up for them. If we were pissed off with Newcastle over the dark arts, Napoli take it to a new level, these guys are professional dick heads.
