UCL Roundup: Liverpool’s Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk after Napoli’s second goal. (Source: Reuters)UCL Roundup: Ending the three-and-a-half-month wait for European action, UEFA Champions League returned with all its pomp and glory with elation, disappointment, and surprises. The 65th edition of the competition kicked off at Milan and Lyon, with the matches between Inter Milan and Slavia Prague, and Olympique Lyonnais and Zenit St. Petersburg.
Liverpool began their title defence with a defeat in Italy, after Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli downed the reigning champions 2-0 at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday. Dries Mertens’ late penalty and Fernando Llorente’s stoppage-time goal saw Napoli take maximum points, as Jurgen Klopp was left to rue his side’s wastefulness in the 82 minutes both the teams were in a deadlock.
“I don’t think it’s a penalty. What can I say, for me, it is clear and obvious no penalty,” Klopp told BT Sport. “We played a lot of good football but didn’t finish it off.”
Liverpool became the first competition winners to lose the opening game of their Champions League defence
