After 1-1 in the first leg, things could go either way, but inspiring Barcelona quickly made their dominance clear in Napoli. The visitors played football as usual, with so many moving players and fluid formations that Napoli didn’t know how to deal with it.
Less than fifteen minutes later, the home team already faced a double deficit and that was by no means an exaggeration, because Barcelona was master and master. At 0-1, Alba was the stylist on duty after a sharp counter, 0-2 beautifully drawn in the crossover by De Jong.
Napoli were upset, but Ter Stegen gave the home team courage. The visiting goalkeeper simply dropped Osimhen in the penalty area, and Insigne did not let the gift go.
However, Barcelona did not let the goal of the connection reach his heart. The Xavi boys continued to tap the ball smoothly and in the first half, Pique sought reassurance 1-3.
Napoli came out of the locker room sharply, but the good intentions quickly evaporated, especially when Aubameyang took care of the beautiful 1-4 ball in the hour. Substitute Dries Mertens saw Politano Allen in the final, although this goal was only a footnote.
Barcelona reached the 1/8 finals and positioned themselves as the favorites for the overall victory in the European League, a competition he was never able to win.
