The Blaugrana were on their feet from the start with Nico closing in after 15 minutes as his close-range effort was saved. But after Ferran Torres closed in on the home side, it was Napoli who took the lead as Piotr Zielinski slotted home a rebound.

In the second half and Xavi’s side were pushing for the equalizer but were frustrated by the poor quality of the final third, with Adama Troare a particular culprit.
