Liverpool vs Napoli Prediction: Tactical Analysis


  • Generally, a 4-3-3 formation is an attacking formation, but in the Liverpool FC team, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are playing higher up the field during an attack. The reason is that they have now become inverted full-backs, which are left and right backs who play like traditional wingers.
  • Trent’s role as an inverted right back helps in most attacks, since he plays closely with Mo Salah up front. Inverted full-backs move the ball into an attack in a triangular pattern with the midfielder and winger. He plays closely with Luis Diaz in the inverted left back role.


  • Typically, Spalleti’s team plays a 4-2-3-1, which builds its game from wide and deep. His two open center backs receive support from two midfielders to start the game with the ball. In addition, the striker fixes the center backs in their own half while the wingers take advantage of the width to continuously threaten the other team’s defence. In turn, the midfielder’s intermediate position acts as support between enemy lines, so if the opposition presses hard, they can move back to provide support and relieve pressure.
