Napoli and Barcelona return in a much-anticipated match that will determine who ends up in the round of 16, The first led in a 1-1 draw courtesy of goals from the young striker Ferran Torres and an away goal from Zielinski. It is worth noting that away goals do not count in this year's UEFA Competitions after a change in rules.
Barcelona came from behind to draw in the first leg and I believe that the Italian heavyweights will edge out the former Spanish champions. The first reason is that their main striker is not near his best form. Ferran Torres has raised some eyebrows after missing a couple of sitters.
Another reason is the lack of a clear attacking plan. In recent matches, Barcelona has relied on the quick Adama Traore who is widely known for his speed. However, a big club like Barcelona cannot rely on one side of the wing. Nonetheless, the determination of Ousmane Dembele can surely help them nick this out with the help of the rejuvenating Aubameyang who scored a hattrick in his recent match against Valencia.
If Napoli outplays them again then that will be the end of a rather sad European journey for the Spanish outfits.
