After 1-1 in Naples, both Barca and Napoli feel like they have the chance to reach the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. For the moment, neither team plays very well, and success in this competition could improve the overall picture.

Before Betting on Barcelona vs. Napoli

Barcelona didn’t lose in the past eight meetings, posting five wins and three draws. Yet despite them having a solid unbeaten streak, the fans, and the pundits are noticing the lack of chemistry on the field and the growing pile of problems in all the lines. 

The positive thing before this event is that Blaugrana didn’t concede a single goal in the last three events, keeping its net intact against Getafe, Bilbao, and Mallorca. Also, three of the recent four matches at “home,” because they play at the Olympic Stadium, saw them posting clean sheets. 

Napoli also didn’t lose for quite some time in the most recent six matches, but the reigning Serie A champions have only two wins and four ties throughout this stretch, which is terrible given their quality and expectations. In general, the entire season has been a huge disappointment for them and their fans. 

Partenopei had seven straight road clashes without a victory (five losses and two ties) before snapping that cold streak with an impressive win against Sassuolo, 1-6. After that, Napoli beat Juve 2-1 but lost the momentum against Torino, playing only 1-1 at home.

The game will be highly tactical, with a conservative approach on both ends because there is too much at stake for both Barca and Napoli. This match could save the season for either side, so we don’t expect to see too many goals, two at most. Barca is tough and rigid at home, not conceding and not scoring too often, while Napoli tends to oscillate in that area. However, we still believe that under 2.5 goals is the best pick.
