Date: on the 06th of November, 2018 (Tuesday)
Match start: 21:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Champions League
Napoli after three rounds takes the second place in group. And meanwhile Ancelotti’s team is the only team in the quartet C which didn’t experience bitterness of defeats.
Taken all in all Napoli has also lost points with the main underdog of group Crvena zvezda, having ended the match in a goalless draw. In order to evaluate the quality of actions of Serbians it is necessary to remember that they have lost the next two games with the final score 1:10.
But Lorenzo Insigne’s goal at the end of the match with Liverpool (1:0) has allowed Napoli to lead the virtual table of head-to-heads between the challengers for leaving the group.
In Paris Ángel Fabián Di María has stolen the victory from Italians and he has scored a goal on the third minute of the injured time (2:2). Since then Napoli has managed to play two matches on home arena, having tied the match with Roma (1:1) and having won over Empoli (5:1) at home.
Thomas Tuchel’s team is breaking the records in the national championship but yet the football players don’t feel absolutely confident in the Champions League. If not the direct shot of Di Maria, Parisians would lose to both rivals in the fight for getting into the playoffs.
No final decision has been made concerning the fixed character of the match with Crvena zvezda (6:1).
Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning that the meeting became a benefit performance of Neymar which didn’t score in other matches.
This fact hints us at the true level of the Brazilian who has forgotten how to decide the fate of difficult matches and to be the true leader on the field.
In the championship PSG has won over Marseille (2:0) and Lille (2:1) in the last rounds, being ahead its rivals with 11 points. By the way, the victorious goal was scored by Neymar.
