CAIRO – 11 December 2018: Liverpool will host on Tuesday night the Italian giants, Napoli, at the last round of the group stage at Anfield Stadium;this is considered Liverpool’s hardest test in the season so far.

The English side is three points behind the leaders, Napoli, and two points behind the second placed, Paris Saint Germain, and only victory can secure their qualification to the next round.

“There is an opportunity to qualify and we are not badly placed. The results of away games did not go as expected, but destiny is in our hands and at Anfield, we have always been good,” Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, told press ahead of the game.

Liverpool’s six points in the group came from two victories over PSG and Red Star Belgrade at home but the team failed to gain any points from their away games.

Klopp will count on the great form of his Egyptian winger, Mohamed Salah, who has had a great weekend scoring three goals against Bournemouth.

However, Napoli's goalkeeper, David Ospina, believes that the team is more than just a player, saying “I know that he scored three goals on Saturday. He is a great player, but we have to watch out for the whole team. Liverpool proved to be a great team, and it's not just one player.”

The game starts on 10 p.m. (CLT).
