It was not the ideal start for Liverpool in their bid to defend their Champions League title as they lost 2-0 at Napoli.
The hosts took the lead after a penalty was awarded later in the second half. A decision which Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp disagreed with. ‘Does anybody think in the room that it was a penalty after seeing the VAR pictures?’ asked Klopp to a packed media room.
Napoli added a second in stoppage time after a rare mistake from Virgil van Dijk was tucked away by former Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente.
