In a drab first half where chances were few and far between for both sides, the Reds suffered an injury blow as Naby Keita had to be replaced by Jordan Henderson. Arkadiusz Milik tested Alisson Becker with a left-footed shot in the 33rd minute but neither team did enough to break the deadlock. In the second half the Italians came out firing and forced Alisson into a number of saves with really troubling Liverpool's Brazilian goalkeeper as they pressed for the win.sbo666 That was until the 82nd minute when Dries Mertens turned a wonderful Mário Rui cross onto the crossbar with Alisson beaten. Then, as Liverpool thought they had held on for a point, up popped the diminutive Insigne in the 90th minute, turning home a sumptuous cross from Jose Callejon to hand Napoli all three points and swing Group C wide opensbo666
