Sure soccer predictions tonight for Napoli vs Barcelona.
Napoli host Barcelona in one of the most interesting matches of the 1/8-finals of the UEFA Champions League. The match will be played on Tuesday, February 25, at 22:00 pm at Stadio San Paolo.
Napoli’s team has been performing strongly in recent weeks. The hosts increased their level of play in February and are now in a series of 3 consecutive wins. They have won 6 of their past 7 games in all tournaments. In those seven games, the Gennaro Gattuso-led team only lost to Lecce with 2: 3 in their own home ground on February 9th.
Napoli will try to continue with his good performances in the Champions League tournament, where they meet one of the favorites. In the first game of the фи-finals, they take on Barcelona, who is striving for a strong performance in the competition this season. In his last game, Napoli won 2-1 against Brescia as a guest, and before that he beat Cagliari and Inter 1-0 on foreign ground.
Barcelona are in a series of three consecutive wins and, like their opponent, are in good shape. Over the weekend, Quique Setién’s boys defeated Aibar 5-0 on their own ground, with team star Lionel Messi making 4 hits. The Argentine will be keen to perform strongly in Naples. Barcelona will look for success on Italian soil to ensure peace before the rematch.
The team still has nightmares since its last visit to Italy when it lost to Roma by 0-3 in the 2017/18 season. The Catalans won their group in the tournament this fall and are one of the favorites to lift the trophy this season, trying to show it on the pitch against Napoli.
Napoli has some problems in defense and this may prove to be a mistake against a top-ranked team like Barcelona. The home team has allowed a goal in 4 of their last 6 home matches. In the Champions League, na Gennaro Gattuso allowed only one goal in the group phase. Now, however, is arriving in Naples, which is capable of scoring any stadium.
Napoli have signed in 7 of their past 8 games at home, so I expect goals from both teams in this match and I will bet on the BTTS option. As a riskier bet you can look for a win for Barcelona and over 2.5 goals in the match. So, thats our sure soccer predictions tonight. Enjoy!
