Barcelona

Watch Barcelona vs Napoli Live

Following a hard-fought, valuable win at home over Mallorca in La Liga on Friday, Barcelona are back in action for the biggest and most important game at the Montjuïc Olympic Stadium this season as the Catalans welcome Napoli for the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

Barça come into this one looking to book a spot in the quarter-finals of Europe’s top competition for the first time in four years, and the last time they did it was against Napoli at home after a 1-1 draw in Italy in the first leg. If history is going to repeat itself, Barça need to overcome a brutal set of circumstances in order to pull off a victory and move on to the Last Eight.

The biggest hurdle are the absences: Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, Gavi and Alejandro Balde are four crucial pieces of Xavi Hernández’s system, and any Barça fan would fear for the worst if they knew ahead of time that those four would be missing with the team’s European fate on the line.
