Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to see his side getting somewhere close to their best form with the Community Shield with Manchester City just a week away
Liverpool return to the UK to face Napoli at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium, hoping for a more serene experience following a somewhat tumultuous pre-season campaign so far.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are already five friendlies deep into a packed schedule with Wednesday’s clash with Lyon still to come, and the curtain-raising Community Shield clash with Manchester City only a week away.
With the Serie A season still almost a month away and fixtures not yet released, Napoli’s primary focus will be working up match fitness as they gear up for just their third match of pre-season.

These teams met in the group stage of last season’s Champions League, with each team earning a 1-0 win on home soil.
Napoli’s initial win in Italy was part of an early scare which almost saw the eventual winners dumped out at the earliest possible stage, with Alisson’s reaction save from Arkadiusz Milik in the dying seconds at Anfield keeping the Reds’ hopes alive.
After swatting aside Bradford and Tranmere, Liverpool did nog manage a win on their pre-season tour of the United States, with Jurgen Klopp raising concerns about the long-term fitness of his players amid a packed schedule.
They start the new season against Manchester City at Wembley next weekend looking to lay down a marker ahead of the Premier League title race, with the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea also squeezed into the calendar early on.
Napoli find out their fixtures for the Serie A season on Monday with the new campaign still almost a month away, and Carlo Ancelotti’s main concerns for the time being remain on the transfer front.
They look set to miss out on Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal, while the long-running saga surrounding James Rodriguez could end in disappointment with the Colombian looking increasingly likely to stay in Madrid – either with Real or Atletico.
With the likes of Juventus and the Milan teams both active in the transfer window, Napoli will be hopeful of making at least one marquee signing as they once again attempt the Sisyphean task of pushing themselves past Juve to the top of the Serie A mountain.
