Napoli vs Liverpool live stream, Wednesday 7 September, 8pm
Liverpool will be looking to begin their Champions League campaign with a win when they face Napoli on Wednesday.
The Reds have had a patchy start to the Premier League season, with just two wins in their opening six matches. Their latest match was a goalless draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby. The Toffees relied on some Jordan Pickford heroics to keep their rivals at bay, but they also caused problems at the other end of the field and could easily have nicked a win on another day.
Liverpool have managed to keep in touch with Manchester City despite their mixed results, but Jurgen Klopp will want to see a fast improvement from his team. The Champions League draw has handed them a potentially difficult group, with each of Ajax, Rangers and Napoli harbouring ambitions of qualifying for the knockout phase. The Reds are still the strong favourites to advance in first place, but they cannot take anything for granted in Group A.
Napoli have not lost any of their their three games against Liverpool at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, and this week's visitors can expect a raucous atmosphere under the floodlights on Wednesday night.
It was a summer of significant change for Napoli, who bade farewell to club stalwarts Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and Kalidou Kouliably, a trio which racked up way in advance of 1000 appearances combined.
Kim Min-jae, Giovanni Simeone, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Tanguy Ndombele were among the arrivals, and this new-look Napoli side has made a bright start to the Serie A season under Luciano Spalletti: a 2-1 victory over Lazio last time out leaves the unbeaten Partenopei in second place.
Liverpool will have to make do without Jordan Henderson, Ibrahima Konate, Naby Keita, Calvin Ramsay and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara will all be assessed in the run up to kick-off.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST on Wednesday 7 September and is being shown on BT Sport 2. See below for international broadcast options.
Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
