Defending Champions, Liverpool, are yet to reach the last 16 after playing a disappointing 1-1 draw against Napoli on Wednesday at Anfield.

The Reds were far from their best as they struggled to play their characteristic fast paced game in the first half.

Napoli finally got the lead goal with Dries Mertens’ almost offside shot.

James Milner would have equalised for Liverpool but his shot was denied near post.

The hosts improved in the second half forcing Napoli to play a defensive game. Finally, the Reds efforts paid off as Dejan Lovren headed home an equaliser at the 65th minute.

Liverpool tried hard to find a winner but Napoli held on to their defense till the very end.

Liverpool will need at least a draw to qualify for the last 16 in their next match against Red Bull Salzburg  on December 10.
