Napoli captain Marek Hamsik is braced for a challenging time at Liverpool but believes in their chances for their final Group C fixture

Carlo Ancelotti’s men secured a crucial 3-1 Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday night to retain their lead in Group C.

Hamsik, who scored his first goal of the season, is now raring to go for Napoli’s trip to Anfield on December 12.

The Light Blues need, at least, a point in order to qualify for the knockout stages and three to win Group C.

“We’re happy to have entertained our audience with the three points,” Hamsik wrote on his website.

“I’m happy to have scored, but the most important thing was the win. Liverpool will be a great match, we’ll do everything to get through, we believe and we’re a great squad.

“The draw in Belgrade? Obviously there’s a bit of regret, but after five games who’d have believed we’d be in first place without losing?”

Napoli will next face Atalanta away in the Serie A on Monday.
