Mohamed Salah’s goal sent Liverpool into the UEFA Champions League last 16, as the Reds achieved a 1-0 result required to leapfrog Napoli in Group C.
The forward’s first-half strike ultimately clinched three points from a fraught encounter with the Serie A outfit that remained in the balance until the last kick.
It was a result sufficient to lift Jurgen Klopp’s team above Napoli in the section by virtue of goals scored, with the head-to-head record and goal difference unable to separate them.
The Reds therefore take second place behind Paris Saint-Germain and will be in next Monday’s draw for the first round of the competition’s knockout stages.
