The first leg saw Liverpool beaten 1-0 after Napoli’s striker, Insigne found the back of the net at the last minutes of the match.
The Reds’ case was worsened when they lost 2-0 to Red Star Belgrade at Rajko Mitić Stadium.
Ahead of the clash tonight, Gazzetta dello Sport has made certain speculations of how it thinks Ancelotti might be planning to stop the dreadfull Liverpool’s frontline.
According to the paper, “There will be an attitutude of great attention starting from a centre of gravity kept deliberately low (around 49 metres) to avoid offering depth to players like the Egyptian, Firmino or Mane, as well as Shaqiri.”
“There will be no single markings, but lower positions double-marking ready. For the inevitable acceleration of Salah, in addition to Mario Rui, there will be Koulibaly. And then let’s not forget that, in the case of centralization, the Egyptian will have to deal with Allan. It will be a great test for the Azzurri to try and keep Klopp’s team filled with superstars from scoring,” Gazzetta added.
