Prediction and odds for the game: Liverpool (3/4) vs Napoli (3/1)
We are backing over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 1/2
When: Tuesday 01 November 2022, Kick-off 20:00
On Tuesday night, Liverpool and Napoli go head-to-head at Anfield as the two teams look to finish top of Group A in the Champions League.
The home side’s poor season continued last time out, as the Reds suffered a 2-1 home defeat against Leeds. The loss was their second in three games. Despite being midtable in the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp’s team has thrived in the Champions League.
Since their gameweek one 4-1 home defeat by Tuesday nights opponents, Liverpool has won four straight games in the Champions League. A 3-0 win at Ajax last time out means that the men from Merseyside have also scored at least two goals in their last four European games.
Liverpool will kick off this game in second place, three points behind Napoli, who are top of the group. The Reds would need to better Napoli’s 4-1 victory in the reverse fixture to win the group, which looks unlikely considering the visitor’s recent form.
The men from Merseyside are undefeated in four home matches in the Champions League, having won their last three home games in Europe. Liverpool’s recent home games in this competition have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their previous seven matches.
The team Naples heads to Merseyside in red-hot form. Not only do the Azzurri not only top Group A, but they are also five points clear at the top of Serie A. Last time out, Luciano Spalletti’s team recorded their 13th straight victory in all competitions. The game also saw the visitors score at least two goals for the 12th time in 13 competitive matches. They have also scored at least three goals in all five of their group games so far this season.
Star striker Victor Osimhen has been in top form of late, as the Nigerian international has scored six goals in his last five outings in all competitions.
This game could end up being something of a dead rubber, as it looks unlikely that Liverpool can better Napoli’s win in the reverse fixture. This clash should still be entertaining, especially if both teams name relatively strong teams. Our main tip is to back over 2.5 goals, as both teams are prolific. The other bet we are backing is for both teams to score, once again for the same reason as us backing over 2.5 goals scored.
Our Tips: We are backing over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 1/2 and/or back both teams to score at odds of 4/7. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
