Napoli will welcome FC Barcelona to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona for a matchday 0 fixture in Europe UEFA Europa League. The last meeting on 17th February 2022 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met three times in the most recent seasons. Napoli has won 0 matches, and FC Barcelona triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.67 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.
Napoli’s latest fixture against FC Barcelona ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Napoli set the tone early and scored in the 29 minute.
Since the start of the season, Napoli is more dominant at home. They have two wins out of 3 games on home soil. Although Napoli is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
The visitors lack quality in some positions on the field and will struggle to match their opponent’s intensity.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or FC Barcelona.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Thursday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 93% of Napoli’s home and FC Barcelona’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
