Both sides have been involved in plenty of high-scoring games this season and our tipster is backing more goals in the Champions League on Tuesday
Liverpool begin their defence of the Champions League with a trip to Napoli on Tuesday night.

Napoli can be backed at 21/10 (3.10) to beat Jurgen Klopp’s men for the third time in four meetings, having also overcome the Reds 3-0 in pre-season as well as in the Champions League last season.Team News
Jordan Henderson should return to the starting line-up after being rested for Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Newcastle. Divock Origi limped off in that game and has not travelled while Naby Keita and Alisson are still out.
Arkadiusz Milik is yet to feature this season due to injury and is unlikely to do so here. Lorenzo Insigne came off the bench for Napoli at the weekend and will be pushing to start on Tuesday.Preview
Although last season’s fixture at Stadio San Paolo between these two sides was a cagey affair, with the teams mustering just a combined five shots on target, there is little to suggest a repeat is on the cards.
Napoli have played just three Serie A games this season but that has not stopped the goals flowing, with 16 strikes being registered thanks to a 4-3 win at Fiorentina as well as a loss by the same scoreline at Juventus.
As well, Liverpool’s usually watertight defence has managed just one clean sheet so far this season, with the Reds failing to keep out the likes of Newcastle and Southampton.Tips and Predictions
Over 3.5 goals is priced at 37/20 (2.85) with 888Sport and could well be a popular wager for this clash, having landed in five of the eight league matches these sides have contested this season.
Napoli’s Serie A games average 5.33 goals this term, the most in the Italian top flight, whilst Liverpool’s league fixtures come in at 3.80 – the fourth most in the Premier League
