2019 UCL Champions Liverpool Lose First Game To Napoli

SAN FRANCISCO, September 18, (THEWILL) – Liverpool began their Champions League title defence with a 2-0 defeat away to Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday.

Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente scored late goals as Napoli defeated holders Liverpool 2-0 in Tuesday’s opening round of Champions League group stage matches.

Mertens converted a penalty on 82 minutes and Llorente added a second in stoppage time as Napoli gained a measure of revenge for last season’s 1-0 loss at Anfield that denied the Italians a spot in the knockout rounds.

In the other Group E game, Salzburg made an impressive start with a 6-2 victory at home to Genk.
