Goals from Mohamed Salah and Darwin Núñez ended Napoli’s unbeaten start to the campaign, as Liverpool snatched victory at the death in Jürgen Klopp’s 100th match as a manager in the UEFA Champions League and his 400th as Reds boss.
Whilst this was technically a final-day decider of who would finish top of Group A, a combination of Napoli’s invincible start to the season, Liverpool’s inconsistency, and requirement for the hosts to win by four or more goals meant any change to the standings was unlikely.
Kvaratskhelia almost snatched it with a snapshot volley, but was denied by a Trent Alexander-Arnold block, which would prove costly for the Italians as Salah popped up even later to hand Liverpool the lead.
Núñez leaped highest to head Kostas Tsimikas’ corner goalwards, with the Egyptian bundling the ball over the line after Meret’s initial save.
Seven minutes of added time allowed Núñez to tap in a second with the last kick of the game from another corner, copying his strike partner by bundling Virgil van Dijk’s header past Meret.
Whilst it may prove inconsequential to how Group A shapes up, Luciano Spalletti’s men taste defeat for the first time this campaign, and Klopp’s side get revenge for a heavy defeat in the reverse fixture.
