THE TEAM NEWS

LIVERPOOL

  • Liverpool head to Scotland to face Napoli after completing their trip to the USA without a win having lost to both Dortmund and Sevilla before finishing off with a 2-2 draw against Sporting.
  • Though still missing Salah and Mane, they named a strong team against Sporting with seven of the players who started the UEFA Champions League final against Tottenham along with two of the players who came on from the bench.
  • Liverpool will head to France after the match for a training camp in Evian and will play their next pre-season match against Lyon at Stade de Geneve on July 31st.

NAPOLI

  • Napoli will be facing Liverpool in their fourth pre-season friendly of the summer. They began their schedule with a 2-1 defeat against Benevento and then defeated FeralpiSalo 5-0 before drawing 3-3 with Cremonese on Wednesday.
  • The 2019 Serie A runners-up have strengthened at the back with the arrival of Kostas Manolas from Roma but are still looking at adding in attacking areas and are strongly linked with James Rodriguez.
  • Ancelotti is likely to field a strong team for this game as their pre-season preparations are ramped up a notch. After this match, they move on to France to face Marseille before flying to the USA for a double-header of matches against Barcelona.

THE PREDICTION

Liverpool come to Scotland having had some good fitness training in the USA but results on the pitch have not been what they would have hoped for, with no wins from their three matches and some frustration with the conceding of sloppy goals. The Reds fielded a strong team against Sporting and are likely to do so again against a Napoli team who have not faced any big-name opposition in their pre-season to date. BT Murrayfield is sold-out and a good atmosphere is expected which may make for a decent contest, so a 2-2 draw is the predicted outcome.
