Europa League Special: Tricky Ties In Store For Liverpool And Napoli

A potential banana skin is in store for Walter Mazzari's Napoli who missed a glut of chances in the first leg.

"We had 31 shots and 14 of those were on target. It is a shame that we only scored one goal," Mazzarri said after the 1-0 victory in Naples.

Liverpool nurse a one goal advantage from the first leg the Reds can coast through to the group stages by keeping a clean sheet in Turkey.

Roy Hodgson will have to do without talismen Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres who will both miss the trip.

"It's going to be a very tough ask for the players in a difficult place but if we come through it we'll come through it stronger," said the new gaffer at Anfield.
