Match: Barcelona vs Napoli

Barcelona have been beaten by Roma and then Liverpool despite winning the first legs of those ties 4-1 and 3-0 respectively.
This season has been close to a disaster for them.
Defeats in the Supercopa de España semi-finals, Copa del Rey quarter-finals and a second place finish in La Liga means they have not won any silverware.
They are in a decent position after a first leg 1-1 draw at Stadio San Paolo in February. Dries Mertens’s curling shot opened the scoring before Antoine Griezmann got a vital equaliser in the second half.
Napoli beat Juventus on penalties in the Coppa Italia final.
They’ve qualified for the Europa League group stage which they would not have otherwise done, finishing seventh in Serie A.
This is only Napoli’s third appearance at this stage of a European Cup/ Champions League but they’ve never gone further, losing to eventual winners Chelsea in 2012 and Real Madrid in 2017.
The winners of this tie will take on either Chelsea or Bayern Munich on 14 August at Estádio da Luz.
So far this season Gli Azzurri have already beaten Liverpool, Juventus, Lazio and Inter.
