NAPLES, GAZZETTA – As the Gazzetta reports today, Napoli really gave Maradona a show, beating Liverpool at the mercy of the blue.
Napoli, Gazzetta: “Perfect Azzurri against Klopp’s Liverpool”
“Champions. The big opportunity was not a utopia and Spalletti knew it. But we needed the perfect match and so it was. Europe is bewitched, Liverpool crashed. Zielinski, Anguissa and Lobotka have never played like this. In Kvara the contract should be extended immediately. Four goals, but it could have been five, even six. Even a missed penalty from Osimhen on 1-0, but Napoli doesn’t even notice it and starts again as before, more than before. Other than Psg. The French look in the mirror, they risk being caught by Juve. Napoli instead enters determined to immediately destroy the Reds and does so, sinking the knife in all their defects. Fantastic match: studied to perfection by Spalletti and performed by a team that moved in total synchrony, fast, intelligent, smart, physical. The Premier looked like Napoli, not Liverpool. Other than high pressing, poor Klopp has only possession, over 60%, but it is a joke: Liverpool keep the ball but never see it. Two Zielinski goals, one Anguissa, one Simeone, and on 4-0 the sop for Luis Diaz, the only one who never gave up. Liverpool finalist just three months ago cannot be this. Today he is small, yes, but Napoli annihilated him ”.
