Why Liverpool Can’t Afford To Underestimate Napoli And PSG






I WAS commentating on the Napoli vs PSG game on Tuesday night.
The good news is that it was a draw, the bad news is that it was a bloody good draw.
If Liverpool are to play any Champions League football after New Year, they will first need to play some of that Champions League football they were playing at the start of this year.
The accident that was waiting to happen in Belgrade will receive more than enough discussion elsewhere on TAW, but it was an untimely reminder that the Champions League represents the highest level of club football in the world. Even the minnows have a bite.
On the evidence of the two close encounters I?ve witnessed over the last couple of weeks, both Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli are capable of playing at that highest level.
It is true that a proper Anfield European night on December 11th could right all the wrongs and deliver the requisite win over the Italians. But don?t count on it.
Liverpool cannot simply rely on tradition and history to magically spirit them past the company they are keeping in the group phase this season. They were third seeds, remember. Brinksmanship doesn?t always deliver. 2004 was then, this is now. Neil Mellor, Florent Sinama-Pongolle and that other fella have all left the building.
PSG have spent a couple of deep oil wells on trying to gatecrash the top table of European football. They are still to get beyond the quarter finals of the Champions League and have the air of a spoilt rich kid who can?t make his own way in the big bad world beyond the French League.

“We’re not asking them to make a magical step into the unknown… we’re just asking for them play like they did six months ago.”

? The Anfield Wrap (@TheAnfieldWrap) November 7, 2018

Liverpool needed a late goal to beat them in September but played with an intensity and drive that PSG couldn?t stir their souls to match that night. More of the same will be required in Paris.
In their first game with Napoli at Parc des Princes, PSG found themselves 1-0 down at half time. Thomas Tuchel, the latest manager hired to try to add up the sum of their precious parts, changed tactical tack. A switch to 3-4-3 helped make them more of a team. They still got dogs? abuse in the French press but they deserved the solace of Angel Di Maria?s late equaliser.
Last Tuesday, they started the game with the same setup. Three at the back. No Edinson Cavani, no Adrien Rabiot, no passengers. PSG owned the first half in Naples playing with authority and control. They certainly merited the lead they grabbed on the stroke of half time.
Cue Carlo Ancelotti. The Napoli he sent out for the second period were totally reenergised, pressing high and pushing P...
