What do Liverpool need to do to fit the bill for the Champions League knockout stage?
LIVERPOOL still get the opportunity to anchor their spot in the Champions League knockout stages.
But Jurgen Klopp’s side will have to put in a remarkable performance when they welcome Italian giants Napoli to Anfield.
Liverpool must win 1-0 or by two clear goals to advance to the last-16.
The Reds won’t qualify with some other one goal win because Napoli would finish with a better head-to-head record.
But three points from any scoreline will be enough to send them through if PSG lose against Red Star Belgrade.
If Liverpool win by any scoreline and PSG draw, three groups in Group C would complete on nine points.
Klopp’s group would then qualify because of their superior head-to-head record.
What has Jurgen Klopp said?
Speaking ahead of the clash, he stated: « The opposition is this way. You play the strongest teams and if you want to go through you have to win.
« We didn’t win regularly enough to be through as of now. That is our mistake and now we can put it right if we perform.
« We as a whole know the outcomes we need and it is very troublesome. Napoli are good in possession, counterattack as well, typical Italian team good at defending.
« It’s a big challenge but if something special is possible it is here and that is why we should try. »
