Despite sitting second in the Serie A table, Napoli have had an indifferent start to their new season. Dutch internationals Georginio Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk are pivotal at the base of midfield and at the heart of the back-four respectively for this Liverpool side. Mario Rui and Milinkovic were likely filling both full-back spots while Hasmik filled a deep-lying playmaker role vacated by Jorginho since his summer move to Chelsea. However, the early passages of play would show unusual yet very interesting team shapes for the Partenopei as Ancelotti showed his tactical nous against his lauded opposite number. Insigne and Milik played as the two centre-forwards, with Insigne dropping a little deeper than his Polish strike partner. Every time Liverpool won possession back and looked to initiate one of their infamous, lightning-fast counter-attacks, Koulibaly was there to intervene for his side.
TBF it's an absolute joke that Napoli were pot 2 and Liverpool pot 3 when you have Lokomotiv Moscow as a pot 1 team cos they won the Russian league! UEFA's system is completely flawed hence this group being as tough as it was. Nico1 - I would agree with you if the implication wouldn't be the rich getting richer and the poor teams having no chance to advance, hence getting poorer. Besides, it's still called the Champions League, isn't it?. What a save for Alisson at the end of the match.
In the league, Napoli set a new club record for points in a single Serie A season, finishing with 91, though this would only be good enough for 2nd place behind champions Juventus, with Dries Mertens was once again the club's top league goalscorer, albeit with ten fewer goals than the previous season; he scored 18 in Serie A and 22 in all competitions. In the Coppa Italia Napoli were eliminated in the quarter-finals by Atalanta. In the Champions League, Napoli had first to navigate through the play-off round, successfully eliminating French club Nice with 2—0 wins in both legs, 4—0 on aggregate. However, having been drawn into a group with English club Manchester City , Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk , and Dutch club Feyenoord , Napoli finished a disappointing third, with four defeats and only two victories. As a result Napoli dropped down to the round of 32 of the Europa League, once again experiencing European disappointment as they were eliminated on away goals after drawing 3—3 across two legs with German club RB Leipzig.

Did Napoli draw with the Parisians, again? It's tempting to mention now that they also put five past Empoli last time out, but Empoli are a team that have only been promoted to the top flight. I'd originally intended to have this piece focus on a stellar performance against PSG which was not forthcoming on the night and perhaps only fleetingly bring up that fat but obscure win. It was significant only up to the point that it ensures they keep pace with Dybala and Co at the summit, and stall Inter who are breathing hard down their necks. The football on show in the Napoli vs PSG match wasn't thoroughly enjoyable, except, perhaps, for Kylian Mbappe doing his thing down the flanks. The compactness of the Napoli backline made sure it didn't get alarming, but otherwise I think the sting was taken out of the game for many periods. It's funny to remember that for all their firepower, PSG had to rely on a solitary strike from their left-back—he had a pretty solid game—to sail them through.
