Naples did not qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League since the 2016-17 season.
Carlo Ancelotti is infallible in Champions. The Italian coach, who has in his list of winners three titles of the Champions League as a coach, puts Napoli among the best teams of the continent qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League after a well deserved and convincing 4-0 victory against Genk at San Paolo.
With 12 points and only four goals conceded, Ancelotti´s team made Liverpool, the current European champion, to do their best to be first of the group. All in a perfect group stage performance by the Neapolitans.
