Napoli vs. Liverpool: Where to Watch UEFA Champions League, Live Stream, TV Channel, Team News and Odds

Liverpool begins the defense of its Champions League title on Tuesday, when it travels to Italy to take on Napoli.

The Reds won a sixth European Cup in June, beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in Madrid to hand Jurgen Klopp his first major trophy with the club.

The German has restored Liverpool among the elite of English and European soccer, but warned his players retaining the trophy will be extremely difficult.

"There are a lot of good teams out there and you have to prove that constantly," Klopp was quoted as saying by the BBC.

"We cannot be the best team in Europe because Manchester City are the best team in the world—that's the same planet, I heard.

"Last season, we were really good. I'm not too sure we were the best team in Europe, but we were really good in the right moments and that's why we won the Champions League."

While Klopp's attempts to keep his team grounded are understandable, Liverpool has only enhanced his reputation since June.

The defending European champions have won their first five Premier League games and have already opened a five-point gap at the top of the table over Manchester City.

Napoli should prove a far harder test than any of the teams Liverpool has faced so far this season. Klopp is well aware of the challenges posed by the Serie A side, who has been drawn in the same group as Liverpool for the second consecutive season.

A year ago, Liverpool lost 1-0 in Naples before winning by the same scoreline at Anfield in the final group game to secure qualification.

"Last year, we learned from one game to the next game and we have to use that experience, because if we don't defend with all we have then we have no chance against Napoli," Klopp added.

"They are so strong."

It is unlikely Liverpool will have to scramble over the line again, as its group is far easier than it was last season. While Napoli should challenge Liverpool for top spot, neither Genk nor RB Salzburg pose a serious threat.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Tuesday.
