Napoli and Barcelona clash for the first time on Wednesday 21 February, with the bookies struggling to split these two European heavyweights. The Italian side boast home advantage although it’s been a testing season for a team who claimed the Scudetto last term thanks to a runaway success. Walter Mazzarri’s side have been inconsistent throughout.

Napoli will feel as though they need to have some kind of advantage before heading to the Nou Camp, although Barca are unbeaten on the road domestically and will be looking to achieve a positive result. Yamine Lamal might only be sixteen but he’s making headlines for a team who are likely to focus hard on performing well in this competition.

When it comes to the Both Teams to Score market, the Champions League football betting sites anticipate that this is likely to happen despite no away goals rule anymore. We might see an open encounter, although Barcelona’s away form has been relatively solid this term and they are particularly good at keeping things tight on the road.

Napoli were only able to win ten of their first twenty-three matches of the season, with Victor Osimhen returning from AFCON duties in a bid to spearhead the attack. It could be worth swerving the 1x2 betting market and instead looking at a feisty encounter which could feature plenty of goals, cards and corners.
