Napoli vs Barcelona betting tips 

  • Bet on the game to end in a draw – 3.45 at Betway.
  • Bet on Robert Lewandowski to score – 1.55 at Betfred.
  • Bet on the game to end 1-1 – 6.60 at Betway.

Bet on a draw 

Both teams have been struggling by their standards this season. Napoli’s defence of the Serie A title which they claimed last season has been poor. They are ninth in the Italian top-flight and will not retain the title they claimed last season. 

While Napoli have home advantage for this game, they are not the team that they were last season. Their current level of play resembles a side which is not cut out to play Champions League football. 

Barcelona too have not been clinical this season and Xavi appears to be leading a demoralized side. There is a good chance that this game will end in a draw. 

Bet on Robert Lewandowski to score 

The 35-year-old remains a world-class striker and is his team’s top scorer this season with 17 goals in all competitions. He will be the biggest threat to Napoli in front of goal this season. Napoli’s defence has been poor this season and they will struggle to contain the likes of Lewandowski.

The Poland international will expose their lack of technical quality in this game and should find the back of the net at least once. 

Bet on the game to end 1-1 

Both teams have struggled for consistency this season. A draw seems like a reasonable score to expect. Barcelona will be the happier side from gaining a draw in Italy as it will give them an advantage ahead of the return leg which will be played at the Camp Nou.
