Barcelona will be aiming to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-final when they take on Napoli this weekend.
This season Barca missed out on the La Liga title, the Copa del Rey crown and they didn’t even get a sniff at the Supercopa de Espana.
The only silverware left on offer for the Catalonian side is the Champions League however, Napoli certainly won’t go down without a fight.
Napoli are in a similar boat to Barcelona having ended their league campaign on a bit of a damp note. The team finished Serie A in seventh place and a massive 16-points away from the top four.
Nevertheless, they still have more to show for their efforts than their upcoming opponents having at least claimed the Coppa Italia crown.
Despite this, Napoli are priced at 17/4 to win away at Camp Nou. Barca, on the other hand, are the favourites and are currently available at 8/13.
Quique Setien’s side put on a strong display in their last competitive games as they brushed past Alaves courtesy of a 5-0 victory. In fact, the Spanish side has won four of their last five games and suffered just one defeat from their last 12 league fixtures.
Napoli endured a much different end to the season with inconsistent results plaguing their top six ambitions.
However, the most concerning aspect of their end of season run has been games away from home. Gennaro Gattuso’s men have lost three from their last five away games while managing just one victory.
Bearing everything in mind, our recommendation is to back the home side to do the business and confirm their place in the quarter-finals.
With the outright price failing to offer serious value, our best bet is to back Barca to win 2-0 at the current price of 8/1.
Barcelona to win 2-0 – 8/1 bet365*
