One of the standout ties of the rounds sees a battle between two former sides of the late, great Diego Maradona.

Given their glittering recent history, Barcelona find themselves in unfamiliar territory.

Indeed, this is their first match in this competition since the 2003-04 season after they bowed out of the Champions League group stages following that 3-0 defeat by Bayern Munich.

Although, Xavi’s side have responded well; going unbeaten after 90 minutes in each of their last 11 matches since then across all competitions.

However, the Blaugrana have been beaten in three of their last five home matches in Europe; as many defeats as they registered in their previous 74.

Meanwhile, Napoli have lost each of their last four away knockout matches on the continent.

Although, they head to Camp Nou unbeaten after 90 minutes in seven games across all competitions.

Barcelona vs Napoli: Match Stats

Victor Osimhen has been Napoli’s man of the moment so far in this season’s Europa League.

Indeed, the striker has netted four goals in just 168 minutes of play, including each of his last three games despite not starting two of them.

In fact, his average of a goal every 42 minutes is the best rate of any player to have scored at least twice in this season’s competition.

Meanwhile, no side bettered Napoli’s tally of 49 corners during the group stages.
