Napoli have named their team sheet for the game against the Reds – with three key names left on the bench by manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Elseid Hysaj, Piotr Zielinski and Dries Mertens were all left out of the Napoli XI by the Italian coach, although they are not bad options to have coming on as substitutes.
Belgian forward Mertens, in particular, is known for being a huge threat. The striker scored at a rate of around one in two last season and is always being linked with big money moves away.
Midfielder Zielinski was a reported Reds target before he moved to Napoli, and will be disappointed not to get a start. The Reds ended up signing Gini Wijnaldum instead – a man who starts tonight.
The full Napoli side is below.
