Liverpool are preparing to play an away Champions League game against Napoli today, September 17.
Ahead of the clash, the Reds midfielder Fabinho has revealed that Liverpool are favorites to win the Champions League season.
The Reds were crowned Champions League 2018/19 champions last season and Fabinho thinks that this year they are also favorites to win the title.
“(We are) one of the favourites, I think,” said Fabinho. “The reigning champion is always the favourite and given Liverpool’s run of form over the last two competitions we must be considered one of the main contenders.
“But it doesn’t put any additional pressure on us, we know how to deal with it, we know how to handle the pressure. It won’t be a problem.
“The Champions League is the toughest competition in Europe with all the best teams involved. We’ll do everything to qualify for the round of 16. It’s a case of taking things step by step.”
The game between Napoli and Liverpool is scheduled at 8pm BST, Stadio San Paolo.
