“We want to progress,” said the Frankfurt coach before the Champions League round of 16 home game against Naples on Tuesday (9 p.m., Sky, DAZN).

“This team is hot as Frittenfett”, Riedauer took possession of the German jargon. “I’m convinced that after Maradona, Napoli will get the Scudetto – and they deserve it.” Coach Luciano Spalletti’s team has a 15-point lead over pursuers Inter Milan, and the third championship title after 1987 and 1990 is within reach.

Naples play “anti-Italian”, Glasner explained the recipe for success. “They have by far the highest intensity, are aggressive against the ball, play an incredibly intense counter-pressing, which is not often seen in Italy.” And in attack you can rely on striker Victor Osimhen and winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who Napoli fans have long dubbed “Kvaradona”.

Only Liverpool have managed to defeat Napoli in the meaningless end of the group stage (0:2) and Inter Milan (0:1) this season. Glasner: “We want to be the third team.”

“Need two great games”

David Alaba wants to continue a series with Real Madrid: The Spanish champions have been unbeaten against Liverpool for almost 14 years. In the last six duels, the “Reds” lost five, including the finals in 2018 (1: 3) and last year (0: 1).

Only at the weekend did Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp watch a video of the recent defeat in the final for the first time. “It was torture,” said the 55-year-old. “You could see their experience, how little they lose confidence, they wait for their chance. That’s what you can learn from them. We need two great games.”
