The Merseyside outfit will travel to Italy to take on the Partenopei
in the second round of games in Group C, after beating Paris
Saint-Germain 3-2 at Anfield in their competition opener.
Alisson has first-hand experience of facing Napoli, having clashed
with them in the Serie A during his time at Roma, and believes they have
the quality to challenge Liverpool.
The last time Alisson faced Napoli, Roma won 4-2 in an end-to-end tie
that put the Brazilian's shot-stopping talents to the test.
"They had 24 attempts on goal, 13 on target. I made 11 saves and
conceded two goals," Alisson told Liverpool's website as he reflected on
"It's always tough playing away against a great club. In Napoli,
we'll definitely find really passionate fans, and a team that comes onto
the pitch with a huge desire to win.
"The last and only time I played there, we happily got a win, but it
was one of the games I had to work hardest in during the season.
"It was one of the toughest games of the season for us in Serie A, so
it's definitely going to be a tough game. They've had the same basis of
the team for three to four years.
"I hope we have a great game and achieve the victory, but it'll definitely be a big challenge for us."
