Napoli are a team transitioning from the reign of Maurizio Sarri, who took midfield lynchpin Jorginho with him to Chelsea, to that of established Italian great Carlo Ancelotti. While Sarri’s high-pressing, attacking style excited fans and brought Napoli three top three finishes in a row, Ancelotti is a proven winner, having won the domestic top division in four countries [Italy with AC Milan, England with Chelsea, France with PSG, and Germany with Bayern]; he’s also won the Champions League three times with two different clubs [AC Milan in 2002/03 and 2006/07 and Real Madrid in 2013/14].
Napoli will not be easy opposition for Liverpool, especially at home. And Ancelotti has a reputation for getting the best from his players by adapting to their strengths. But Liverpool are flying and Napoli are vulnerable in areas that Jurgen Klopp’s team are well equipped to exploit.
