Barca Ov. 1.5 Goals

Barcelona vs Napoli 17.02.2022

Barcelona’s desire to re-invent themselves as a European powerhouse faces another major test in Thursday’s Europa League first leg knock-out tie. Barca are playing in Europe’s second-tier club competition for the first time since 2003/04 season where they lost to Celtic in the last 16. Xavi, who played in that tie 19 years ago, will be hoping to navigate this one successfully as the Manager.

Meanwhile, Napoli will be looking to replicate their exploits in 2014/15 season when they got to the Semi-Finals. Their confidence will be boosted by Victor Osimhen’s goal-scoring form which has seen him average a goal every 42 minutes in this competition.

Barca head into this tie on the back of an impressive goal-scoring form of 6 goals in the last 2 games. Hence, we are backing them to score at least two here.
