Napoli not dead yet

The rugged performance to hold out at Anfield was not that of a team in crisis, argues Giancarlo Rinaldi, but consistency has always been Napoli’s problem.

They were queueing up to deliver the last rites before this match. It was, we were told, the end of an era for this squad, its stars and probably its coach. But, at what appeared their darkest hour, Napoli showed reserves of character and quality which suggested their demise might not be as imminent as some had supposed. There’s life in the old club yet.

Meret: 'Napoli humility in Liverpool'

Alex Meret praised Napoli teamwork and “humility” to earn a 1-1 draw away to Champions League holders Liverpool.

The goalkeeper barely had a save to make, conceding a Dejan Lovren header from a corner, although his one fumble did force Kalidou Koulibaly into a goal-line clearance.

“It was a very difficult night, they pushed for 90 minutes, but we showed great humility and played the game we needed to in the circumstances,” the shot-stopper told Sky Sport Italia.

Klopp: 'Napoli closed the centre'

Jurgen Klopp admits Carlo Ancelotti’s tactical adjustments made life difficult for Liverpool. “We were not brilliant, but we put pressure on.”

Dries Mertens had opened the scoring from a tight angle, but Dejan Lovren nodded in a corner for the 1-1 Champions League draw at Anfield.

This means Liverpool still have a one-point lead at the top of the group, but Napoli’s final game is with Genk, whereas the reigning champions must travel to RB Salzburg.

Ancelotti: 'Liverpool can be controlled'

Carlo Ancelotti explained his tactical choices after the 1-1 draw with Liverpool. “They have quality, but become more controllable in reduced spaces.”

Dries Mertens saw his early strike cancelled out by Dejan Lovren’s header on a corner, but it was perhaps asking too much to get a win at Anfield, where Liverpool haven’t lost in Europe for five years.
