Napoli v Barcelona: How to watch, TV channel, head-to-head stats & team news

Napoli face Barcelona in the Champions League Round of 16 with both sides seeking relief from their respective league campaigns.

Currently 9th in Italy's top flight, Napoli have endured a miserable defence of their Serie A title while Barcelona's attempt at retaining their crown has been equally disappointing, with the Catalan outfit eight points adrift of leaders Real Madrid.

Napoli will have a new face in the dugout after Walter Mazzarri was sacked just three months into his tenure, with the Italian replaced by Slovakia head coach Francesco Calzona.

Despite their rich European pedigree, Barcelona have not reached the quarter-finals of the competition since 2019/20 and Xavi will be looking to rectify that during his final season with the club.

Napoli v Barcelona stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Napoli safely navigated a tricky-looking Group C to reach the Champions League knockout rounds for the second successive season.

Interestingly, Gli Azzurri have lost only one of their last 16 home Champions League games (W10 D5).

Having failed to advance beyond the group stage in their last two seasons, Barcelona finally progressed to the Champions League knockouts by topping Group H. Xavi's side also won all three of their home matches, a feat they hadn't achieved in a Champions League group since the 2017/18 campaign.

These two sides last met in the 2019/20 Champions League Round of 16, where Barcelona emerged as 4-2 aggregate winners after a 3-1 victory at Camp Nou.
