Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah will be looking to reach the last 16 of the Champions League when they host Napoli at Anfield on Wednesday in the fifth round of the Champions League group stage.
Liverpool are top of Group E with nine points, one point ahead of runners-up Napoli. The Reds need to win the night to book their first Group E qualifier in the final, as well as securing top spot.
Napoli, meanwhile, are looking to win to reach the 11th point and take the group lead, as well as continue to beat Liverpool after they managed to win in the first round match, which collected them at the stadium “San Paolo” 2-0.
Mohamed Salah is expected to return to the starting line-up after the recent medical tests proved that the Egyptian star has fully recovered from an ankle injury, to get the green light to participate in a key against Napoli, according to the newspaper “Liverpool Eco” English.
Mohamed Salah suffered an ankle injury that kept him out of Egypt’s matches against Kenya and the Comoros in the qualifiers for the 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon, while sitting only on the bench in the Crystal Palace match in the Premier League “Premier League”.
In contrast, Napoli will be deprived of the services of Lorenzo Insigne in that game due to the injury, where he suffers from an elbow injury suffered during his participation in last Saturday’s match against Milan in Serie A.
Predicted Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
