Even though the result wasn’t what Napoli were hoping for in their trip to Anfield, Luciano Spalletti’s men can still be pleased with their performance and the fact that they secured first place in their Champions League group. Napoli fullback Mathias Olivera reflected on the display. “We put in a great performance. We’re disappointed with the result, but we played in the way we intended.
“We came here to win and not sit back. We always look to score and get the victory. This evening, we could have actually won it, but what matters is the performance and finishing top of our group, which is something we deserve.”
It was an impressive individual performance from the Uruguayan too.
“I’m happy because I’m developing. The coach gives me confidence and he’s helping me play at my best. The whole team is doing really well. We must continue in this way, working hard and keeping up this mentality and level of play.”
