Napoli vs Barcelona prediction

This is a tough fixture for Barcelona, but they are in poor form and the manager is at risk of losing his job. Barcelona are picking up form at the right time heading into this match, I think Xavi will secure a Napoli 1-3 Barcelona scoreline here.

Meanwhile, Barca have shortlisted 3 left-wing options to sign in the summer transfer window.
