Player Focus

The two sides will be tactical in their efforts to dominate the match. The midfield and attacking areas will be crucial for both sides in this match. 

Andreas Christensen

Xavi has drafted the Defender to play in midfield in recent matches. On Tuesday, he will be the deepest-lying midfielder for the home side.

Christensen will screen the back four and support the forward-minded attackers in the middle of the pack.

Expert soccer predictions show that his ball-playing abilities and playmaking vision will be essential to Barcelona offensively and defensively.

K. Kvaratskhelia and M. Politano

Napoli’s two wide players will be central to their tactical plan away to Barcelona. The wingers will tuck into the half spaces and help press from the front, putting pressure on Barcelona’s midfielders and center-backs when playing from the back.

They will drop deep when Napoli are out of possession and ensure that the Serie A side are compact and solid in their defensive phase. Their pace and movement will pose an attacking threat on the counter.

Tactical Analysis

Football predictions analysis show that Barcelona vs. Napoli will be a cagey match, especially after the two sides ended in a 1-1 draw in the first leg. 

Both sides will be pragmatic in their approach, looking to ensure that they are not exposed defensively, with transitions attacks as the main outlet on the offensive end.

Barcelona vs. Napoli Expert Analysis

Barcelona’s 4-3-3 will give them the bodies in the middle of the pack, allowing them to dominate possession and set the tempo of the match.

Napoli will also play with a 4-3-3 formation with three midfielders and three attackers. This shape will allow them to press from the front foot and defend deep when they are out of possession.

These approaches will make the midfield area the football pick battle as the decisive area of the pitch in this match on Tuesday.
