Napoli vs. Barcelona Betting Tips 25/02/2022

Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Barcelona travel to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples for the 2nd leg of their Europa League Round of 16 tie against SSC Napoli. The fixture is scheduled for 01:30 IST, 25th of February, 2022.

Barcelona was the better team on the night when both sides met at the Camp Nou in the first leg of the tie but could not convert their dominance into a victory. Napoli will play in front of an energetic crowd, and with the tie perfectly balanced at 1-1, we expect a great game with chances at both ends of the pitch.

Teams Status

Here is the latest on the form and team news from Napoli and Barcelona:

Napoli Form and Team News

Luciano Spaletti’s side played out a 1-1 draw against Barcelona in the first leg. They have a league meeting with Cagliari on Monday night before the return leg against Barcelona on Thursday. Napoli haven’t had a convincing European campaign but remain in contention for the Scudetto, as they are locked in a three-horse race with AC Milan and Inter Milan.

In Serie A, Napoli sit third after 25 games, with 16 wins, 5 draws, and 4 losses. In the Europa League group stages, they recorded 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses in 6 games, scoring 15 goals and conceding 10. Elmas Elif leads the goalscoring charts for Napoli with 4 goals and 1 assist.

For their team news, Napoli will miss Lorenzo Insigne, Hirving Lozano, Matteo Politano, Stanislav Lobotka, and Andre Zambo Anguissa. They are out with injury and will most likely sit out this encounter.

Barcelona Form and Team News

Xavi’s Barcelona are starting to play their best football and responded to their disappointing draw in the first leg with a 4-1 thumping of Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium. Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got his first hat trick in Blaugrana colors, and the team is in a positive mood traveling to Naples.

They still occupy the 4th position on the standings, with 11 wins, 9 draws, and 4 losses in 24 games. Their European campaign has been riddled by poor performances that saw them crash to the Europa League, where they began with a draw against a strong Napoli side.

For their team news, Barcelona will be without Eric Garcia as they travel to Napoli. The Spanish defender is sidelined with an injury, having picked up a knock against Valencia.

Tipster’s Angle

Napoli and Barcelona played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg of this tie, leaving the game completely open for either side to win in Naples. It is difficult to choose between these two teams as they have enough quality in every position to decide a match. Napoli are playing excellent football, and Barcelona are getting back to their best under Xavi. Here are the tips for Napoli vs. Barcelona:

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.28

The first leg of this tie ended in a stalemate, and with no away-goal rule for Napoli’s advantage, we expect to see an open game, with several chances created by both sides.

Napoli have genuine goal threats in Osimhen and Mertens, while Barca’s Aubameyang scored a hat trick over the weekend. We expect to witness a scoreline of more than one goal. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.28 odds.

Tip: Either Team To Win @ 1.30

Extra time or penalties will put a lot of pressure on these teams, especially Napoli, who play a game on Monday night. Penalty shootouts need more luck than skill, so none of the managers will be willing to see the game go into extra time.

We expect this tie to be decided over 90 minutes with one team as the victor. Either team to win is available on the sportsbook at 1.30 odds.


Napoli will host Barcelona in one of the headlines of Europa League playoff games this season, and we expect an exciting attacking display from both teams as they seek a winner. The game is too close to call, but whichever team scores first will be in a strong position overall.
