Liverpool being roughed up by Napoli

Liverpool’s Champions League campaign took off with a nightmare in  Naples on Wednesday as sensational Napoli ran out wild 4-1 winners.

Match report as Liverpool suffered their worst Champions League defeat; Napoli scored three-first half goals without reply; Giovanni Simeone netted on his Champions League debut, 25 years and 361 days after his father Diego Simeone also scored on his competition bow

Liverpool stunned into submission, then presented Osimhen with his own chance to test Alisson from 12 yards after an ill-timed challenge from Virgil van Dijk was penalised by VAR review

Alisson denied the Napoli striker’s spot-kick attempt, but Liverpool’s reprieve only lasted 13 minutes. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia outmuscled Joe Gomez – who enjoyed a torrid 45 minutes – before allowing Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa to slot the ball low past Liverpool’s helpless ‘keeper.

Things went from bad to worse shortly before the interval as substitute Giovanni Simeone – on in place of the injured Osimhen – turned home a low cross from Kvaratskhelia.

Zielinski rounded off the scoring for Luciano Spalletti’s side, two minutes into the second period, while Luis Diaz netted a consolation goal with a well-taken strike.
