Thiago Silva is the kind of guy that would celebrate a 4th quarter sack when down 20 points with some obnoxious dance.

Am I correct in saying that if these results hold, LFC needs a 2-0 win over NAP in the last match to go on?
Yeah. Even if they come back for a draw they would likely need a win to advance anyways, but to top Napoli it would need to be by 2.

Lost all 3 group games on the road, but still control their own destiny. Should be an electric atmosphere at Anfield for Matchday 6.

But nobody parks the bus like Italian teams. A quick one within the first 10 minutes would go a long way to getting started.

Given the front 3’s relatively pedestrian performance to date, and the godliness of Koulibaly/Allan for Napoli, I’m not expecting Liverpool to go through.

To be fair, if you can’t beat Crvena Zvezda away, you probably don’t deserve to be in the knockout stages

I don't think they have a chance in hell of going through. they haven't been good since early in the season and Napoli will have ten guys standing in front of goal for 90+ minutes.

I'm still trying to figure out the tiebreak scenarios if Liverpool beat Napoli and PSG draws in Belgrade. They'd all be on 9 points.

EDIT: Haha, apparently the only way PSG doesn't advance in this scenario is if Liverpool win 5-4.

Also... apparently a 1-0 Liverpool win puts them above Napoli. Any Napoli goal and Liverpool need to win by 2. And yes, that is the exact same scenario as the Olympiacos game in late 2004.
