European champions Liverpool, who placed second in the English Premier League table last season, return to the United Kingdom after a United States tour that generated mixed results at best with a pair of losses and a draw, according to 90min.com. They will be taking on the second-place side from Italy’s Serie A, SSC Napoli. But Liverpool will still be missing their top attacking stars Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, as both remain on break following the Africa Cup of Nations tournament that wrapped up earlier in July. Brazilian midfielder and goalie Roberto Firmino and Alisson Becker also have yet to return after their team won the final of the Copa America. Nonetheless, the match is expected to take place before a sellout crowd and will live stream from Scotland.

Currently, only the Napoli match and one more preseason friendly remains before Liverpool faces Manchester City in perhaps the most anticipated Community Shield showdown in years — marking the traditional opening of the English season. For their upcoming match, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is expected to field his strongest possible side, minus his missing stars, including a possible start for 17-year-old Dutch acquisition Sepp Van Den Berg, according to The Liverpool Echo. The Dutch teen saw his Liverpool debut in the club’s final match of the U.S. tour, a 2-2 draw at New York’s Yankee Stadium against Sporting Lisbon.
Liverpool needs a win before opening their season, but Napoli represents their toughest preseason test so far. The two sides could be seen as evenly matched, after exchanging 1-0 wins in their home-and-away UEFA Champions League group stage matches last year, according to Bleacher Report.
