 Liverpool suffer Champions League humiliation against Napoli


Liverpool suffered a humiliating defeat against its host Napoli (1-4) on Wednesday evening, at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, in the first group of the European Champions League.

With this victory, Napoli finished second in the group, with 3 points, one goal behind Ajax, who earlier beat Rangers 4-0.
Napoli started the match as a striker, and Osimhen caught a through ball, to evade goalkeeper Alisson Becker before hitting the post in the second minute.
The referee awarded a penalty kick to Napoli after Zielinsky\’s shot touched Milner\’s hand, and the first successfully executed the kick in the fifth minute.
Angus passed in front of Milner before sending a ball along the goal, which Politano failed to follow in the 13th minute.
The referee awarded a new penalty kick for Napoli after using video technology when it was found that Van Dyck ran over Osimhen\’s foot, and the latter took the kick, but Allison successfully saved it in the 17th minute.
Arnold took a free kick directly over the human wall, but goalkeeper Merritt saved it with his fingertips in the 22nd minute, and two minutes later, Salah got a pass from Arnold to turn and hit a ball that Merritt easily controlled.
Napoli missed a new opportunity to consolidate their lead in the 30th minute when Osimin snatched the ball in front of Gomez, before he advanced it from the right and passed to Kvaratskhelia, who followed it directly before Van Dijk removed it from the goal line.
Once again, Gomez lost the ball in front of Kvaratskhelia, who passed to Anguish, the second exchanged the ball with Zelensky, before hitting the goal at the near post, enhancing his team\’s progress in the 31st minute.
Liverpool\’s response came shy in the 37th minute when Robertson sent a ball from the left side, which rebounded from the defense and Elliott followed it away from the near post.
The injury forced Osimene to leave the field, to be replaced by Argentine Simeone, who added the third goal in the 44th minute, after an easy follow-up to a pass in front of the goal-directed by Kvaratskhelia.
Joel Matip entered the Liverpool squad instead of Gomez between the two halves, but Zielinsky returned to add his second personal goal in the 47th minute, when Simeone passed the ball to him before he shot it to be blocked by Alisson, before returning to it and putting it in the net.
But Liverpool responded quickly two minutes later, when Robertson passed the ball to Diaz, who advanced and dribbled, before firing from the outskirts of the penalty area, a ball to the left of goalkeeper Merritt.
Diaz tried to add the second goal for his team in the same way, but his ball this time passed by the far post in the 53rd minute, and Mexican substitute Herving Lozano hit a ball from afar towards the stands in the 60th minute.
Merritt starred in the removal of Diaz\’s strong attempt after a cross from Arnold in the 62nd minute, before Salah, Firmino, and Milner were eliminated, and Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, and Thiago Alcantara entered.
Lozano kicked from inside the penalty area where goalkeeper Alisson was standing in the 70th minute before Brazilian Arthur Kahn Elliott participated in the Liverpool squad.
Substitute Zerbin passed the ball to Simeone, who rebounded his attempt from Matip in the 83rd minute, before the remaining ileum passed slowly, without a real threat from Liverpool.
