(Video) Virgil van Dijk saves Liverpool with a block on the line as Jurgen Klopp’s side struggle in Naples

Posted by

Napoli began the first-half against Liverpool in superb form and easily could have been at least five goals up inside the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Virgil van Dijk helped keep the score down.

Despite giving away the penalty that led to the opening goal for the Italians, our No.4 was on hand to help Joe Gomez out by blocking a shot that came from his mistake.

Our No.12 was caught in possession and that led to Victor Osimhen having a run through on goal, before squaring it to Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

The Georgian had a golden opportunity to double the lead of the Italians but the captain of Holland made sure to keep them out, at least for a short period of time.
