Barcelona reclaimed their place at the top of LaLiga at the weekend courtesy of a 5-0 thrashing of Eibar. Since suffering a defeat at the hands of Athletic Bilbao, Barca have reeled off three-straight wins to find their form under Quique Setien. The Catalan club were strong in the group stage, winning four and drawing two of their matches. However, a trip to face the Stadio San Paolo is not straight forward as Napoli proved by beating the holders earlier in the campaign.

Napoli were impressive during the group stage, remaining unbeaten in their six matches, which included a 2-0 triumph over Liverpool on home soil. Gennaro Gattuso’s men enter tonight’s contest in good form, winning their last three matches on the bounce. They’re off the pace for the top four in Serie A, but they have beaten Cagliari and Brescia to provide momentum to take on Barca and spring an upset on the Spanish outfit.

Good evening and welcome to the first leg of the Champions League round-of-16 clash between Napoli and Barcelona at the Stadio San Paolo.
