Barcelona vs Napoli Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in Barcelona’s last three home games
  • Napoli have netted in 12 of their last 15 away matches in the Europa League
  • The previous two meetings between these two sides saw both teams score

Barca troubled by injuries

Barcelona enter the Europa League for the first time in their history in pretty decent form, having not lost over 90 minutes in 11 games since being knocked out of the Champions League in December.

They could be boosted by the return of Memphis Depay after a month on the sidelines, but a long list of absentees includes Ansu Fati, while Ronald Ajauro is a major doubt after limping off at the weekend.

The defender would be a major miss for Xavi, whose side have not kept a clean sheet in four home fixtures, while both teams have scored in nine of their last 11.

Napoli to cause an upset?

While Barcelona have several selection issues, Napoli saw Kalidou Koulibaly return from winning the African Cup of Nations at the weekend and Victor Osimhen is playing in a protective mask despite a cheekbone injury.

The Italians enter this fixture unbeaten over 90 minutes in seven games and they have scored in nine successive matches on the road, winning three of the last five.

Luciano Spalletti’s side have also seen both teams score in five of their last six away games in the Europa League, including all three fixtures this season.

I predict both teams will score in this fixture, but they will each want to keep it tight ahead of the second leg, so I select a 1-1 draw as a correct score prediction.
