Napoli pip Liverpool 1-0 in Champions League match


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his side only have themselves to blame after a late winner from Lorenzo Insigne gave Napoli victory in their Champions League group game in Italy.

Napoli dominated the second half as substitute Dries Mertens also deflected an effort on to the crossbar.

The hosts had the better chances throughout as Fabian Ruiz and Arkadiusz Milik had shots saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

“We have to blame ourselves, that’s how it is,” said Klopp.

Liverpool’s best effort came via Mohamed Salah, who shot wide after the break, but Klopp’s side failed to record a single effort on target in Italy.

According to BBC, home goalkeeper David Ospina reacted quickly to prevent Sadio Mane and Salah running on to throughballs late on.

But Napoli winger Jose Callejon’s volley was also kept out later in the second half.

“There’s no problem, the boys did a brilliant job tonight,” added Klopp. “They tried everything and were really busy, but not smart enough or calm enough in the right moments.
