Calendar of FC Barcelona

Although the Series To seems defined this season in favour of the Inter of Milan and the valid champion, the Naples, aspires only to obtain some square for the European competitions of the next season, the napolitanos have wanted to leave clear this Sunday that will not be a simple rival for the FC Barcelona in the turn of the eighth of final of the Champions League.

Like this it remained contrasted in the day 27 of the Italian championship with a triumph by 2-1 of the Naples on the Juventus, current escort of the tournament, in Diego Armando Maradona. With the so many of Kvaratskhelia, that went back to be the best of the ones of the Vesubio, and of Raspadori, the venues added his twelfth victory of this season in league, but especially sending a message to the Barça of face to the decisive party of the next Tuesday 12 March after the 1-1 of the gone.

Regarding the meeting of this Sunday in front of the Juve, the Naples avoided any 'revenge' of the turineses in a duel in which clearly there were pending accounts of the past season, when the napolitanos assaulted the stadium juventino for desatar the celebrations of a Scudetto of the that already knew winner in this moment. This time the triumph was again for the group napolitano, even with an almost identical result.

The Barça can begin to increase his worry with the Naples

The forward Raspadori, acting in the gone in front of the Barça, finish deciding also this party with a goal agónico. Besides, the ones of Francesco Calzona took advantage of a big party of Kvara, that again went back to be the most important player of his team. It was a constant danger by band and besides marked two goals gone on down first time from March of 2023, adding 3 in two parties.

With this result, the Naples adds already 2 victories followed and 4 consecutive days without losing in the Series To. It is seventh to 3 points of Europe, although the Champions remains him to 8. It seems a team renewed with Calzona and the victory has been balsámica in front of a big rival, something that can suppose a change of mentality to few days to measure to the Barça in Lluís Companys.
