Cape Town - Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has warned
his team-mates that UEFA Champions League opponents Napoli will provide
them with a tough test on Wednesday.
The Merseyside outfit will travel to Italy to take on the Partenopei in the second round of games in Group C, after beating Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 at Anfield in their competition opener.
Alisson has first-hand experience of facing Napoli, having clashed with them in the Serie A during his time at Roma, and believes they have the quality to challenge Liverpool.
The last time Alisson faced Napoli, Roma won 4-2 in an end-to-end tie that put the Brazilian's shot-stopping talents to the test.
"They had 24 attempts on goal, 13 on target. I made 11 saves and conceded two goals," Alisson told Liverpool's website as he reflected on that game.
"It's always tough playing away against a great club. In Napoli, we'll definitely find really passionate fans, and a team that comes onto the pitch with a huge desire to win.
"The last and only time I played there, we happily got a win, but it was one of the games I had to work hardest in during the season.
"It was one of the toughest games of the season for us in Serie A, so it's definitely going to be a tough game. They've had the same basis of the team for three to four years.
"I hope we have a great game and achieve the victory, but it'll definitely be a big challenge for us."
