Genk 0, Napoli 0: Ancelotti men held to goalless draw at Genk



NAPOLI’S troubles away from home in the Champions League were exposed again in a 0-0 draw at Genk on Wednesday. The result extended Napoli’s winless streak away from its San Paolo stadium to eight matches in the competition.


Napoli hit the woodwork three times and a shot from Kalidou Koulibaly was cleared off the line  all in the first half. There was more frustration for Napoli after the break with Jose Callejon wasting a clear chance after being left unmarked.


Still, Napoli moved atop Group E with four points, one point ahead of Salzburg, which was visiting titleholders, Liverpool later. Genk is next with one point and Liverpool has none after losing 2-0 at Napoli in the opening round of matches.


Napoli began with energetic forward, Dries Mertens and in-form center forward Fernando Llorente on the bench and Lorenzo Insigne in the tribune. The decisions backfired as Arkadiusz Milik who hit the goalframe twice was consistently off target.


Arkadiusz Milik missed three glorious first-half chances as Napoli played out a 0-0 draw with Genk in Wednesday’s Champions League clash. Arkadiusz Milik in particular was guilty of spurning big chances for a Napoli side who top the group with four points, though Liverpool and Salzburg have a game in hand to play.
