17 October at 22:40
Welcome to our live coverage of Manchester City-Napoli. This is what you need to know ahead of the kick-off.
Manchester City and Napoli’s only previous meeting came in the 2011/12 Champions League group stages. The Italians remained unbeaten, drawing 1-1 in Manchester before winning 2-1 at the San Paolo.
However, Napoli have never won an away game against English opposition in all competitions, losing five of their six trips (D1), conceding 15 goals and scoring only three.
Manchester City have picked up maximum points from their opening two games for the first time ever in a Champions League campaign. It is also the first time they have had two consecutive clean sheets in a group stage.
Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 10 Champions League home games (W7 D3), their longest run without a defeat on home soil in the competition. City’s last defeat at the Etihad dates back to September 2015 against Juventus (1-2).
None of Manchester City’s 38 Champions League group games have ended goalless.
This is Manchester City’s seventh consecutive Champions League participation. They have made it past the round of 16 only once, it was in 2015/16 when they reached the semi-finals (knocked out by Real Madrid).
Meanwhile, Napoli have progressed to the knockout stages in two of their three previous appearances but have never made it further than the Last 16.
Dries Mertens has been directly involved in nine of Napoli’s last 14 Champions League goals (6 goals, 3 assists).
