The Reds will be playing at the notoriously fervent Stadio San Paolo and boss Jurgen Klopp says he is aware and prepared for the famous atmosphere generated by the Napoli faithful.

Sturridge has four goals across the Premier League, Champions League and League Cup so far this term with his latest an absolute rocket after rising from the bench to grab a deserved point at Chelsea.
The 29-year-old’s recent form coupled with his improved injury record has seen talk of an England recall begin to gather momentum.
And his club team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum believes Sturridge, who won his last of his 26 England caps in October 2017, should be in Gareth Southgate’s next squad.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp lamented missed opportunities, with Mohamed Salah, his replacement Xherdan Shaqiri and Roberto Firmino all culpable during their 1-1 draw away to Chelsea.
“Six, seven times we had big chances,” the Reds boss said.
“We gave them one proper chance, they used it and we didn’t use ours. That’s how life is.
“As long as we play like we did tonight we will win football games.”
Klopp refused to criticise last season’s top scorer Salah, who spurned a host of chances.
“It was not Mo’s best game of his career, 100 per cent,” Klopp said.
“In a game like this constantly in situations he comes in, that makes you a world class player. You fail, you miss, whatever, that happens.
“He wants to be decisive, he wants to score in these situations.
“The first ball he missed it was not the right position. The next one he passed. Why? He could’ve finished again.
“It’s like riding a bike. It’s not like you wake up in the morning and you cannot finish any more or cannot ride a bike any more.”
Sturridge proved that fact again, striking from 25 yards at his former club after years of injury after injury.
“He’s in the best shape since I’ve known him,” Klopp added.
“It’s really cool. I’m really happy for him.
“When he came in the dressing room it was pretty loud. The boys were really happy for him because he’s in a good moment.”
