After Manchester City and Lyon secured their Champions League quarter finals berth, it is now up to Barcelona, Napoli, Chelsea and Bayern Munich to secure the remaining two spots.

Barcelona is set to host Napoli at Camp Nou after a five-month hiatus due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that had put the entire sporting world on hold.

The Blaugranes hold a key away goal advantage over Napoli from their first-leg fixture that ended in a 1-1 draw in February.

Team News:

Barcelona's Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal will be missing the game due to suspensions. Clement Lenglet and Antoine Griezmann, meanwhile, have recovered just in time for the fixture.

For Napoli, it is the injury of key forward Lorenzo Insigne which is a big concern for the visitors.

Lionel Messi, who has been very vocal about the dreadful performances from the team in the recent past, will have all eyes on him as his numbers are terrific despite having a below par season.


Napoli will visit Camp Nou for the first time in a competitive match.

The last team to win an away Champions League fixture at Camp Nou was Rubin Kazan in October 2009 (2-1).

Napoli have lost two of their previous knockout Champions League fixtures.
