Napoli vs Rangers live stream and match preview

Looking for a Napoli vs Rangers live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide.

Napoli would have fancied their chances of getting out of Group A, but not even their most ardent of fans could have seen this coming. The Partenopei have outperformed every other team in the Champions League so far, winning four games out of four while scoring 17 goals and conceding only four.

Luciano Spalletti's side are also flying high in Serie A. A 1-0 win at Roma at the weekend made it 29 points from a possible 33 for Napoli, who are daring to dream of a first league title since the days of Diego Maradona.

Few saw this coming. A season of transition was expected after a summer in which several stalwarts, such as Kalidou Koulibaly, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne, left the club. Instead, Napoli are playing better football than the vast majority of teams in Europe.

Rangers can no longer finish in the top two of Group A and reach the last 16, but they are still fighting for a place in the knockout round play-offs of the Europa League. Three points behind third-placed Ajax, they must at least match the Dutch team's result against Liverpool to keep their hopes alive.

Gio van Bronckhorst's side were booed off by the Ibrox crowd after a 1-1 draw with Livingston at the weekend. That result leaves Rangers four points adrift of Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Champions League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Champions 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:
