Napoli´s next week tie against Liverpool will be decisive for Napoli´s expectations this season.

After a great performance the Neapolitan team thrashed (4-0) Frosinone thanks to the goals from Zielinski, Ounas and Milik, twice.
Ancelotti picked a really young starting XI. With an average of 25 years and 243 days, it is the youngest team that starts for Napoli in Srie A since September 2009. Carlo gave minutes to players who had not yet enjoyed many opportunities such as Melet, Ghouhm or Younes, and the team responded perfectly. “I´d like to dedicate a few words of praise for the three boys who played after a long period of time, they have worked very hard and now they are ready,” said the Italian coach.
