Betting tips: Barcelona x Napoli

Check out our predictions of the day for Barcelona vs. Napoli

Prediction 1: Barcelona x Napoli / Barcelona to win

Barcelona has not only won the first leg and been on a better run of success overall, but they have also done it while missing key players due to injuries.

Even if a rejuvenated Napoli finds the back of the net at Montjuic, the Blaugrana can still depend on their record of scoring goals after the 70th minute to advance to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

Prediction 2: Barcelona x Napoli / Over 2.5 goals

Next, in their previous four home games, Barcelona has scored nine goals. On that run, they have also leaked three times. Additionally, in three of the four meetings between the two teams at this stadium, Barça scored two or more goals. We recommend the 2-1 accurate score suggestion for the host Barcelona side since Napoli has scored in most of their previous encounters. Considering the goal trend noted earlier, you can also consider backing the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score tips.

Prediction 3: Barcelona x Napoli / Both teams to score

The Partenopei will need to step up their game in this second-leg matchup against Barca, as it seems they have the upper hand.

Napoli should have lost in the first leg since they were outshot 12-6. If they want to make it to the quarterfinals for the second year in a row, they’ll need to significantly improve after being held to a 1-1 draw by Torino on Friday.

In their past five encounters, both sides have scored. With nine goals scored by the visitors in their last three, it could be an exciting match in Barcelona.

It seems like Francesco Calzona’s Partenopei may be done for the season, as they have lost five of their previous eight away games and have gone down in European competitions on each of the eleven occasions they have lost the home first-leg tie.
