NAP vs BAR Dream11 Prediction for Napoli vs Barcelona Preview Europa League League Live Score, Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

NAP vs BAR Dream11: Napoli come into this on the back of a trip to Sardinia to face Cagliari in the middle of their Serie A title race on Monday. That match followed an entertaining but very fortunate 1-1 draw at Camp Nou in the first-leg of this tie against Barcelona. Barca were very impressive and created lots of chances, most spurned by Ferran Torres. The style of play attempted to be implemented by Xavi is becoming more obvious and more effective and the Catalans’ 4-1 hammering of Valencia, which involved a mesmeric first-half in which the Blaugrana went 3-0 up, was another good step and good sign. A hat-trick for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will give the Gabon forward some confidence and they will come into this as the favourites for an away win.
