Napoli – Barcelona : Preview & Prediction
Naples receives FC Barcelona this Tuesday evening, on behalf of the knockout stages of the Champions League. Second in their group during the group stage, the Neapolitans will try to thwart the forecasts, against a Barça who still seems capable of achieving great things with a Lionel Messi like this. Author of a quadruple last weekend in the championship against Eibar, the Pulga remains indeed on crazy performances, and could carry alone the Catalan club in the competition. Although weakened by numerous injuries, FC Barcelona can thus count on the best player in the World on top form, in addition to contributions from players like Griezmann, Fati and other Arthur Melo. Against a Naples sick this season and who has won only 3 games in the competition, the Catalans are favorites, this Tuesday evening at San Paolo. An evening that we expect therefore complicated, for a Napoli capable of the best but also and above all of the worst.
Naples have won only 3 of their 6 C1 matches this season.
At home, the Neapolitans remain on a defeat against Lecce (2-3).
Barcelona remains on 3 consecutive victories. Including a scathing 5-0 against Eibar.
Lionel Messi, author of a quadruple last weekend, returns to form at the best of times.
Barça are undefeated outside this season in the LDC: draw in Dortmund, but also success in Prague and Inter. Strong.
Superiors on paper, the Catalans should be able to win on the lawn of a Naples not really on top this season. Lionel Messi on fire, the club coached by Quique Setien has everything it takes to win far from its basics and take an advantage in view of qualifying.
