Napoli, recently bolstered by signing Hirving Lozano, will host the Reds in the opening match of Group E play. Given that the other two teams in the group are Red Bull Salzburg and Genk, this could be the most compelling head-to-head match the group offers.

Liverpool vs. Napoli: What to watch for
Liverpool looks dominant so far in the Premier League season, and that bodes well for the team’s Champions League chances as well — though Manchester City is still favored to win. For the Reds, going to Napoli will be the toughest test of the six group stage matches before them, and they may be in no better form to handle business. Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mo Salah are still the most exciting attacking trio in world club soccer, even though Barcelona’s among the teams trying to match that.
Napoli, meanwhile, got a brace from Dries Martens last week, helping it keep pace with Inter Milan, Juventus, and a bit surprisingly, Bologna in the Serie A race. Hirving Lozano, who looked solid for Mexico during the recent international break, adds an extra dimension to Napoli’s attack and should test a very sturdy Reds defense.
