ROME – Two games from the end Napoli are in the running for the passage to the Champions League first knockout rounds . With the tie obtained at the San Paolo against the PSG, the Azzurri led by Ancelotti are first in Group C, tied with Liverpool (6 points). The French are 5 while the surprise Stella Rossa is 4. In short, a group that will last the fans freediving.
On the penultimate day of the group stage, November 28, Napoli will be busy at home against the Serbs and with a victory may, perhaps, celebrate the qualification to the second round. That may perhaps be canceled by the result of Psg-Liverpool. If that evening Liverpool should leave the Park of the Princes with a positive result, Ancelotti and his boys, winning against the Red Star, could celebrate the passage of the turn. Otherwise the qualification Napoli will have to sweat at Anfield Road, against Liverpool, in the last game of the Group (11 December).
In any case, in the case of an equal number of points between two or more teams, Article 17 of the UEFA regulation applies. The regulation provides that in case of equal merit the positions in the groups are ordered according to points obtained, best goal difference in direct matches, greater number of goals scored in head-to-head and greater number of goals scored away (always in direct matches). If these criteria were not enough, the order would be established by the best goal difference or the highest number of goals scored in all group matches.
These are the group C matches:
Red Star-Naples 0-0
Psg-Red Star 6-1
Liverpool-Red Star 4-0
Red Star-Liverpool 2-0
