Napoli vs Barcelona prediction 22 February 2024 – Napoli will host Barcelona at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in the first leg of the last 16 of the 2023/2024 Champions League. The Napoli vs Barcelona match will kick off Thursday, February 22 2024, at 03:00 WIB, live broadcast on SCTV and live streaming on Vidio.

Napoli are in a condition that is far from convincing. Because, Napoli just fired coach Walter Mazzari, then appointed Francesco Calzona as his replacement. Prior to this, Napoli had also fired Rudi Garcia.

Napoli is the runner-up in Group C. Meanwhile, Barcelona is the winner of Group H. In the group phase, Napoli and Barcelona both suffered two defeats. The difference is, Napoli won three times (W3 D1 L2), while Barcelona won four times (W4 D0 L2).

In the group phase, Napoli met Barcelona’s classic rivals, Real Madrid. At home, Napoli scored two goals against Real Madrid through Leo Ostigard and Piotr Zielinski (penalty), but lost 2-3. When they visited Spain, Napoli also scored two goals through Giovanni Simeone and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, but lost 2-4.

Meanwhile, in their group, Barcelona won the competition against Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk and Royal Antwerp.

In Serie A, Napoli is currently ranked ninth, while Barcelona can only rank third in La Liga. In fact, these two teams are both defending champions in their league. This season, their performance has been quite erratic.

However, seeing Napoli’s worse condition and the unrest in their opponent’s camp, Barcelona seems to be the favorite to achieve a positive result in the first leg duel at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona later.
