Team News & Match Tips – NAP vs BAR:
- Luis Suarez, Sergi Roberto, Jordi Alba and Ousmane Dembele are unavailable for Barcelona.
- Koulibaly, Llorente and Younes are unavailable for Napoli tonight.
- My Verdict: This is another mouth-watering clash in the UEFA Champions League.
- Napoli have definitely underperformed in Serie A this season. However, they have performed well against some of the bigger games this season. Napoli have already beaten Juventus, Liverpool, Inter Milan and Lazio this season. They cannot be underestimated.
- Here is a useful stat: Barcelona have won just 2 knockout away matches in the Champions League since 2015! They will find it difficult to win in Naples tonight.
- It is an understatement to say that both teams love to play attacking football. It is also no exaggeration to say that both teams often struggle defensively.
- Napoli will operate very conservatively in this match. I am expecting a low scoring match with both teams trying their best not to concede in the first leg.
- My Prediction: Napoli 1-1 Barcelona
1. ter Stegen
2. N. Semedo
4. I. Rakitic
21. F. de Jong
26. Iñaki Peña
28. Riqui Puig
31. Ansu Fati
33. R. Araujo
