Liverpool vs Napoli in the UEFA Champions League

 

Coach Jurgen Klopp entered the match with a formation with some changes, as it came in:

 

Goalkeeper: Alison Becker

 

Defence: Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Alexander-Arnold and Tsimkas

 

Midfield: James Milner, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho

 

Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Jones

 

With this formation, the team led to a negative tie in the first half of the match, as the Reds team lacks the offensive tendency that it had in previous seasons, and there are some sports analysts who say that the Reds’ administration’s neglect of the Senegalese player Sadio Mane is one of the biggest reasons for Liverpool’s deterioration this season.

 

And in the second half, James Milner was replaced, Harvey Elliot entered, Thiago Alcantara replaced, Fabio Carvalho entered, Jones exited, Darwin Nunez entered, Alexander Arnold was replaced, and the substitute Calvin Ramsey appeared for the first match with the team.

 

There is a question what will the Liverpool team do if it faces a heavy-caliber team such as Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, how to reap positive results with all these problems, such as the many injuries that occur, as the Liverpool team lost from the weakest English Premier League teams such as Leeds United and Nottingham Forest Which Arsenal defeated by five clean, the management of the Reds must bring several deals to strengthen the team strongly.

 

It is sad that at the beginning of the season, the brilliance of Mohamed Salah largely disappeared due to the poor results and the high brilliance of Halland, the top scorer in the English Premier League at the moment, with 15 goals, and this is a big difference between him and Salah, who has only 4 goals so far.

 

As for the Napoli team, this loss is their first loss in this season, as this team is the leader of the Italian League and the leaders of the Champions League with a full score, and this loss could affect them slightly in the upcoming matches because they wanted to complete the season without a final defeat.

Jurgen Klopp said, “We did a good performance tonight because of the great pressure that the Napoli team put us in and the pressure makes a big difference. I really enjoyed that match tonight, even if the team did not score today.”

 

He added, “Napoli is one of the best teams in the world at the moment. We see what they are doing in the Italian league, and we are also in the most difficult circumstances. We got 15 points in the Champions League, and this is crazy and unnatural, challenge and spirit, you can do anything.”

 

He added, “The Napoli team also performed well in the match, but we also performed higher than the previous match, and the moment we reviewed Mohamed Salah’s goal, the wait was difficult, but in the end we won and we have to focus on the upcoming matches.”

 

And the Liverpool team is currently in ninth place in the English Premier League with 16 points, and the next match in the Premier League is against Tottenham Hotspur. This match will be difficult for the Reds, because the Tottenham team’s lines are tightly knit, but Son was injured and some press reports say that he will not play the next Liverpool match on Sunday.
