LIVERPOOL WILL RETURN to Dublin this summer for a pre-season friendly with Napoli, the FAI have confirmed.

An international club friendly between Jurgen Klopp’s Reds and the Italian giants will take place at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, 4 August.

Ticket details for the game will be released this coming Monday, 23 April – a day before the Merseysiders’ Champions League semi-final first leg with Napoli’s compatriots, Roma.

August’s glamour tie will be Liverpool’s second visit to Dublin in as many summers: they beat La Liga outfit Athletic Bilbao 3-1 in front of a capacity crowd at Lansdowne Road last year.

Maurizio Sarri’s Neapolitans currently trail Juventus by four points in the Serie A title race, but square off with the long-reigning champions on Sunday night in Turin.

Napoli are chasing a first Scudetto since Diego Maradona inspired them to league glory in 1989/90.
