LIVE
Post.
Thanks for joining me tonight. See you next time for more action.
90'
FT: Liverpool 1-1 Napoli. A tale of two halves. Liverpool were the best in the 1st half and Napoli were the best in the 2nd half. Both teams aren't through yet as 3 teams can still qualify.
90'
And it leads to nothing.
90'
Van Dijk is upfront now, and he has just won a free-kick. Last chance saloon.
90'
Koulibaly is also booked for his protests.
90'
Robertson is booked for a shove on a Napoli player. Bit of handbags here.
90'
4 minutes added on time. Could be enough for either team to get a goal.
88'
Liverpool all-out attack these last few minutes. Corner after corner.
85'
Napoli sub: Younes on for Zielinski.
81'
Napoli sub: Mertens off for Elmas.
80'
Lovely takedown from Wijnaldum and his volley goes just wide.
78'
Liverpool sub: Alexander-Arnold on for Milner.
72'
Napoli sub: Llorente on for Lozano.
71'
So Liverpool haven't actually lost at home in the Champions League since 2014...
69'
Now, can Liverpool get a winner?
67'
And just as I said about Liverpool failing to score at home.....
66'
The corner comes in and Lovren gets up above everyone else and heads it in. Game on!!!
65'
GOOOOOOOAAAAAAL LIVERPOOL!!!!!!!!
64'
Last time Liverpool failed to score at home was a 0-0 draw at home to Bayern in February!!
62'
Liverpool break and the ball is crossed into Firmino, but he can only head wide. They are coming closer.
62'
Incidentally, Liverpool haven't lost since last time against Napoli. A sign?
61'
Ball is played to Salah just inside the box but he can only hit it straight at the keeper.
58'
A very attacking change for the hosts. By the sounds of it Milner will move to RB while Oxlade-Chamberlian will take Milner's role.
57'
Liverpool sub: Oxlade-Chamberlain on for Gomez.
55'
Closest Liverpool have come. Meret goes to catch the ball but drops it, and Coutinho shoots but Koulibaly clears it off the line.
54'
Looks like Oxlade-Chamberlain is coming on. What can he do here?
53'
A frustrating evening for Liverpool so far.
46'
And we're back!!!
45'
HT: Liverpool 0-1 Napoli. Mertens' fine finish separates the two sides so far. Liverpool haven't really threatened Meret's goal, so Klopp may drill that into them at half time.
45'
Klopp is booked for his protests at the referee. He is a lively guy.

Will Liverpool win the Champions League this year?

Van Dijk's header from inside the box is headed straight at Meret.

Liverpool trying to create an opening but Napoli are defending really well.
26'
Van Dijk has an ambitious effort from about 25 yards out that sails over the bar.
24'
Well this is not what we expected.
23'
VAR being checked for a possible offside and foul on Van Dijk. Goal given and the Italians are beating the European champions.
22'
Lovely goal. The ball is played over the top to the advancing Mertens. He runs with the ball and rifles into the bottom corner from a tight angle. 1-0 Napoli.
21'
GOOOOOAAAL NAPOLI!!!!!!
20'
Fabinho got injured in an earlier passage of play.
19'
Liverpool sub: Wijnaldum on for Fabinho.
13'
Rui catches Alisson off his line and tries to chip him from the halfway line but it goes wide. Tried to copy David Beckham there.

Like what happens with most players, he gets up and is ok.
