Napoli have had a tumultuous season so far, with Carlo Ancelotti parting company with the Italian club in December despite the fact that the Naples side had already qualified for the Champions League last sixteen stage.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Gennaro Gattuso is now in charge at the Stadio San Paolo, with the former Milan coach hoping to engineer a famous European victory over a Barcelona team who are among the favourites to win the competition.

Napoli certainly have a chance of getting a positive result from their first leg encounter on 25 February. After all, they have already beaten Liverpool this season and remain the only team to have meaningfully defeated the Reds this campaign.

Admittedly, the team’s form went off a cliff during the months of November and December, although the Azzurri signed off with a 2-1 win at Sassuolo before Christmas and have the sort of weaponry to cause problems for a Barca side who have slipped up in these type of games before.

In the past two seasons, Barcelona have been heavily defeated away at Roma and Liverpool, with Ernesto Valverde aiming to avoid any more slip-ups although his team might tread cautiously in this first leg clash before heading back to the Nou Camp.

Barcelona might be sitting at the top of La Liga, although they have dropped 17 points domestically this season and experienced three defeats on the road. Indeed, they have only registered four victories from their ten matches away from home and this won’t be an easy game for them.

Perhaps the Catalan side are artificially short for this clash considering that the presence of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann in the same team will cause punters to blindly back Barcelona.

However, we should note that this is a two-legged affair and Barcelona will be happy enough with a high-scoring draw. The odds about Napoli on the Asian Handicap seem too good to refuse.
