Liverpool extends woeful UCL record away from home with 2-0 loss vs Napoli

Liverpool may have won last year's UEFA Champions League, but they would certainly improve their chances of winning back-to-back titles if they were a bit better when playing away from home.

The Reds were not able to beat Napoli for the second straight UEFA Champions League edition at San Paolo Stadium, as Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente scored two goals for the hosts in less than 15 minutes to give the Italian side the edge over the current UCL holders. Liverpool lost last year's clash against the Partenopei with a 1-0 score at the same venue, which complicated their chances of making it to the next stage of the competition.

The main problem for Liverpool is that they have not been able to win a single away game in Group stage matches, as Klopp's men have not claimed three points in almost two years.

In fact, Jürgen Klopp has also had his fair share of problems when playing away games in Italy.
