Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano’s Napoli suffers its first defeat of the season by falling to Liverpool in the Champions League

Napoli from Serie A experienced their first defeat of the season, something that did not cost them much in the UEFA Champions League, as they entered the Round of 16 of the international competition anyway.

With a dream start to the season in Serie A, Napoli, where the Mexican Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano is, suffered his first defeat of the campaign, although it was not in Italy, but in the UEFA Champions League, a competition that he was winning against pleasure, but found a Liverpool that put an abrupt stop to his positive run.

With 12 games played in the local tournament, with 10 wins and two draws, the Neapolitan team has yet to lose in Serie A. However, now in the Champions League the same cannot be said, because of the six games played in the Group Phase lost the last of them, precisely against Liverpool.

The first goal of the game came at 85′ thanks to a strange goal scored by Mohamed Salah, who after Darwin Núñez’s shot ended up pushing the ball over the line to score 1-0. However, this did not end here, because at 90 + 8, Darwin Núñez again with a rebounding play inside the area also pushed the ball to take away Napoli’s undefeated in the Champions League.

Although the Mexican team lost, this did not prevent him from entering the knockout stages of the Champions League, in fact, he was at the top of Group A of the ‘Orejona’, leaving Liverpool with the same number of points (15), in the second position.

To finish this Group, Ajax was in third position, entering the Europa League, with six units and at the bottom of the table was Rangers from Scotland who could not add units throughout the tournament.
