Liverpool’s Champions League progress will come down their final match again after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Napoli.

Last December qualification was not secured until the last kick of the last game, coincidentally against the Serie A club, and while the stakes are not as high this time around – a draw will do in Salzburg – they have not got the night off they hoped for.

Dejan Lovren’s second-half header cancelled out a contentious opener from Dries Mertens and means only a win in Austria will guarantee they top Group E.

Jurgen Klopp’s 100th European fixture as a manager was not the occasion he would have liked as Napoli, unbeaten in three of their four encounters against them over the last two seasons, made things difficult.
