Football managers love the idea that they're playing psychological warfare with one another. After all, who doesn't want their opponent to feel on edge before they head into a match?
Napoli will be in a similar position tonight, as they are going to have to prepare themselves for the entrance tunnel leading into Red Star Belgrade's Rajko Mitić Stadium.
Check it out:

Talk about intimidating, right?
If it's not the armed security waiting in the tunnel -- and there's plenty of them -- then the walls don't paint the most welcoming sight for an away side.
That's not to mention seeing the thousands of Red Star fans as the teams finally emerge from the tunnel after that long walk.
It will be the Italian club's opening fixture of the Champions League.
Oh, and it's worth remembering that both Liverpool and PSG will have to make that walk in their respective matches against the Serbian side.
Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti has had a successful start with the club after replacing Maurizio Sarri in the summer, with the Blues winning three matches and losing one in Serie A so far.
