A great retreat from Naples to Liverpool


The story came true again: Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp drowned in the field of Napoli. And this time in what way. A real nightmare for the ‘reds’ to start the Champions League at the Diego Maradona stadium. An unknown Liverpool fell to a great Napoli 4-1. A very difficult setback for a team that has been seen to lack energy, success and confidence. On the other hand, Thiago Alcánatara reappeared in the second half after his injury and Former Barcelona player Arthur Melo made his Liverpool debut.

Liverpool always lose to Napoli and Victor Osimhen, who entered the squad at the last minute after recovering from some discomfort, crashed the ball against the post in the first minute. And in the 5th minute, a penalty from James Milner was converted by Piotr Zielinski. Napoli, 2nd in Serie A, 2 points behind Atalanta, showed their credentials.

Osimhen managed to extend the advantage of Luciano Spalletti’s men, on the field despite undergoing surgery for a broken collarbone, but Alisson Becker saved the Nigerian striker’s penalty at 18′. The highest penalty was for a stomp by Virgil van Dijk on Osimhen himself. But the Napoli game deserved more and made it 2-0 with a great Zambo Anguissa in the 31′, assisted by Zielinski.

The situation worsened for a Liverpool that isn’t Liverpool, getting all its lines wrong, especially in defense. And the man in charge of darkening the panorama for those at Anfield is Giovanni Simeone takes advantage of the ball from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. It was a huge emotion for Cholo’s son when he scored his first Champions League goal.

After the break, Klopp brought on Joel Matip for Gomez, who was shipwrecked by Napoli’s attackers. But just after the start of the second half, on 47′, the outlook for Liverpool darkened further when Zielinski scored Napoli’s fourth. He shot, Alisson refused and the Pole took advantage of the rebound to seal his double.A very difficult 4-0 to start the Champions League, with their last loss against Real Madrid (1-0). Liverpool, now seventh in the Premier, has six champions under his belt.

Y Luis Díaz came to the rescue to try to make the result. The Colombian international closed the gap for Liverpool with a great shot from outside the box in the 47th minute. And in the 62nd minute, Díaz himself came close to scoring the second for the ‘reds’.

It was also in the 62nd minute when Klopp brought on Darwin Núñez, Thiago Alcantara (who again showed this after his injury) and Diogo Jota of Roberto Firmino, James Milner and Mohamed Salah. In the 77th minute, Arthur Melo made his Liverpool debut, replacing Harvey Elliott. The history of the party has been written.
