LIVE STREAM: Napoli vs Liverpool, Inter vs Bayern, Barcelona vs Viktoria, Tottenham vs Marseille

#image_title

Last year’s beaten finalists Liverpool will look to right the wrongs when they get their 2022/23 European journey underway against Napoli on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men haven’t looked the same since falling to Real Madrid, with a 9-0 mauling of Bournemouth the only positive in an otherwise thoroughly underwhelming start to the Premier League season.

With injuries still wreaking havoc, here’s how the boss could set up.

GK: Alisson – The stopper has managed just two clean sheets this season and will do well to add to that here.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – May get an easier run of things as Hirving Lozano continues to be checked following a head injury at the weekend.

CB: Joel Matip – Given a nice rest last time out against Everton, Matip should be ready to return to the starting lineup here.

CB: Virgil van Dijk – Still not looking like himself this season and might have a tough time of things up against Victor Osimhen.

LB: Andy Robertson – Another who started the Everton game on the bench, Robertson’s legs will have appreciated the chance to rest for an hour.

DM: Fabinho – The anchor man needs to be at his best to ensure Napoli don’t win the midfield battle.

CM: Harvey Elliott – Injuries mean young Elliott may have to keep his place in the starting lineup, which is no problem for Klopp as he has plenty of faith in the teenager.

CM: Arthur – Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all unavailable, while there are doubts over the fitness of Fabio Carvalho, Curtis Jones and Thiago, so it may be time for a debut.

RW: Mohamed Salah – Salah has just two goals in nine meetings with Napoli across his time with Roma and Liverpool.

ST: Darwin Nunez – Up against another expensive young striker in Osimhen, it will be fascinating to see who comes out on top of that battle. Two of the best in the business.

LW: Luis Diaz – In each of his three years in the Champions League, Diaz has recorded two goals. Liverpool may need that figure to up with Sadio Mane gone and now would be a great time for the Colombian to flourish.

Inter and Bayern Munich kick off their campaigns in the Champions League on Wednesday night when they meet in Milan.

Barcelona will kick off their 2022/23 Champions League campaign by playing host to Viktoria Plzen.

The Catalan giants failed to make it out of the group stage last season and, being drawn alongside Bayern Munich and Inter, need to get off to a winning start if they want to do so this time around.

Their Czech opponents meanwhile haven’t played in the competition since 2018 and will have to pull off some shock results if they want to avoid finishing bottom of the group.

Tottenham return to the Champions League with a home clash against French giants Marseille.

Spurs’ last appearance in Europe’s premier club competition saw them eliminated at the hands of RB Leipzig, just days before the continent went into lockdown.

Marseille, meanwhile, are excited to be back after their last appearance in the European Cup came behind closed doors during the pandemic – their manager for that campaign was a mutual coach in Andre Villas-Boas.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this one.

Tottenham team news

Bench: Forster, Doherty, Spence, Lenglet, Tanganga, Sanchez, Sessegnon, Skipp, Sarr, Bissouma, Richarlison, Gil

Marseille team news

Igor Tudor, who Conte described as ‘a friend’ and ‘good guy’ in his pre-match press conference, will be without former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez due to a suspension carried over from his time at Inter.

There will be plenty of other players available who have previously plied their trade in England , including Gunners loanee Nuno Tavares, Matteo Guendouzi, Dimitri Payet and Eric Bailly.

Former Spurs goalkeeper Pau Lopez is expected to start in goal having not played a competitive minute in his loan spell in north London back in 2016/17.

Bamba Dieng, whose deadline day exploits have been well-documented, has been left out of Marseille’s reduced squad for the group stage, alongside forward Cedric Bakambu and 6’9″ defender Isaak Toure.
