The visitors have been in fine form, surprisingly defeating Liverpool in the group’s curtain raiser before settling for a drab stalemate against Genk on the road.

Salzburg v Napoli Team News

Last time out against reigning champions Liverpool, the home side showed how resilient they can be on their day. They hassled and harried Jurgen Klopp’s men throughout the game, making them to scrap really hard for the win.

The game which was played at Anfield ended in a thrilling 4-3 victory in favor of the Reds. However, Die Mozartstadter headed back to Austria, knowing fully well that they gave their opponents a run for their money.

Jesse Marsch’s charges have just the one win in this competition which was an outstanding 6-2 hammering of Genk on home turf. With these results, it is obvious that Salzburg have been one of the better teams in Group E of the Champions League.

The Austrian outfit are also the only team who are yet to taste defeat in their domestic league, racking up so many wins and a few draws so far. It is also worth noting that the home side’s frontline has got their guns blazing, maintaining a six-match winning streak on home turf across all competitions.
Napoli, on the other hand, are surprise leaders of the group and are good value for their position. Defeating Liverpool on tome turf went down well with the fans and manager Carlo Ancelotti must have given his players a pat on the back at the end of the game.

However, a draw against Genk on the road raised some eyebrows among the fans. In truth, Napoli have not been faring well in most of their recent outings. In five games, they can only boast of two wins, which is a pretty poor record.

Overall, they have also been very disappointing with just one win from their previous three games. Moreover, the visitors were at the receiving end of a humbling 3-1 defeat on their last trip to the Red Bull Arena.

However, despite Salzburg’s strong showing so far in this competition, the home side have kept a clean sheet just twice. They have conceded the most goals in the group, as a whopping six have already been hit past them this season.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Salzburg: Alexander Walke, Antoine Bernede.

Napoli: Mário Rui, Nikola Maksimovic, Elseid Hysaj.
