Liverpool - As the Champions League group stage draws to a close, Napoli managed to secure top spot on Tuesday night. Even though the Azzurri’s unbeaten streak came to an end at Anfield, with Liverpool emerging 2-0 winners, Luciano Spalletti’s men can be proud of their Champions League campaign so far. On the night, it was a tight game between the two sides, with little to separate them. It was Napoli who first hit the back of the net, but Leo Ostigard’s effort was disallowed after a VAR review found the Norwegian defender to be fractionally offside. Liverpool’s goals came in the final moments of the game when it was already clear that top place in the group belonged to Napoli. As we await the draw for the last 16, attention turns to the league, where a tough test against Atalanta lies in store on Saturday.
