NAPOLI

Last time out, Napoli failed to take advantage of Inter’s shock 2-0 home loss to Sassuolo. As a result, they remain in third position after Victor Osimhen’s 87th-minute header rescued a point at struggling Cagliari.
While they will be disappointed, they will draw inspiration from the fact that the title is still within reach

On Thursday, attention will shift to the Europa League where Napoli have progressed from all eight of their previous knockout ties after drawing the first leg away from home.

In addition, they will be energized heading to this tie because since 2017 when Real beat them 3-1 at home, the Italian side haven’t lost to any Spanish side in 9 European games on home soil, winning 6, drawing 3.

Based on this, we expect Spalleti’s men to put up a stern fight.

BARCELONA

If Barca had been more clinical in the first leg, they would have probably taken full control of this game. In this second leg tie, they will count on Aubameyang’s new found form which bagged him a hat trick against Valencia last time out.

Although the Europa League is an unfamiliar territory and possibly an unwanted trophy for Barca, it still remains the only chance of winning a silverware this season. Hence, this tie is a must win for Xavi’s men.
