Barcelona vs Napoli LIVE MATCH

Both Barcelona and Napoli look unlikely to be celebrating much on the domestic front this year, so the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash looks a crucial encounter, especially as a 1-1 in the original game leaves the tie perfectly poised.

There was little to separate these two when they met in the first leg in Naples and with so much at stake for both of these teams, it would be no surprise if we witnessed another tight encounter.

Barcelona are unbeaten in eight matches but there are concerns about what sort of side manager Xavi will be able to field after the Spanish giants were crippled by a host of injury problems.

Frenkie de Jong and Pedri have both suffered problems which will lead to a reshuffle in the Barca midfield, which means they are perhaps a short price to claim victory in 90 minutes, even though Napoli mustered just one shot on target in the first meeting.

The Italian champions have found some form following Francesco Calzona’s introduction as interim manager, taking eight points from his four Serie A games in charge, which included a 2-1 win over Juventus.
