  • Though Liverpool and Napoli are two sides which are most likely to qualify, but mathematically Liverpool, Napoli and FC Salzburg, all can qualify. But KRC Genk has ended this years campaign.
  • The last time these two met was in the reverse fixture, and then at home, Napoli recorded a 2-0 victory.
  • The last five matches in a row failed to have goals at either end of the pitch.
  • At this venue, the hosts hold a 100% winning record.
  • No player has created more chances in the Champions League Group Stage this season than Jose Callejon of Napoli
  • Salah is back fit for Liverpool and should take his place in a familiar front three alongside Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
  • Fabinho is expected to continue in midfield given his unavailability for this weekend’s Premier League game against Brighton due to suspension, while Joe Gomez could replace Lovren at centre-back.
  • Xherdan Shaqiri could be included in the squad having now recovered from a calf problem
