Is Liverpool title defender failing in the premiere of the premier class this season? This is still possible after the draw with SSC Napoli. In the group of coach Jürgen Klopp after the fifth day, only the team in fourth place is certain.
The reigning Liverpool champions will have to fight for their place in the knockout stages until the last day of the group stage in the Champions League. German coach Jürgen Klopp's team arrived at Anfield against SSC Napoli and his coach Carlo Ancelotti did not pass 1-1 (0-1). On the last day, the Reds in Group E could fall behind in third place behind Naples and Salzburg.
A draw in the last group match in Austria would be enough to advance Liverpool. Napoli took the lead with Dries Mertens in the 21st minute, when Dejan Lovren returned home for a corner in the 65th minute. In the parallel game of Group E, Red Bull Salzburg did not give KRC Genk a chance. In the debut in the premier class of coach Hannes Wolf, the Austrians prevailed in Belgium with 4: 1 (2: 0), so Genk ranked fourth in the group.
The Inter may depend on the BVB
Slavia Prague was eliminated after a 1: 4 (1: 1) home defeat by Inter. The Czechs had kept up for a long time. Curious: in the 35th minute the Italians applauded for the alleged 2: 0. But then the referee Szymon Marciniak resumed the shot after video tests – and instead decided to sanction Prague. Stefan de Vrij had already hit Prague's Peter Olayinka in the penalty area of Inter at the feet. The Slavia captain Tomas Soucek converted the penalty, then suddenly it was not 0: 2 but 1: 1. Only in the second half, the Italians managed to settle, they overcame the BVB with the victory in Group F and now they can reach the last 16 alone.
Ajax Amsterdam defeated OSC Lille France in Group H 2-0 (1-0). Zenit St. Petersburg beat Olympique Lyon 2-0 (1-0) in Group G early this evening, while in Group H Chelsea and Valencia lost 2-2 (1-1).
