Barça will face Napoli on Tuesday, and should be careful in trying to get a good result. The catalans have two players on warning in the Champions League
The FC Barcelona returns this Tuesday to the Champions League, and his main aim is to tie a victory in front of the Napoli. The Catalans want to première with good foot his eliminatory of eighth of final, and will treat to tie up a good result in Saint Paolo to have more options to finish the pass in the Camp Nou. Although they are favourite in the crossing against the Italians, there are several reasons that invite to have caution.
In spite of his irregularity, the partenopeos are a rival to take into account, and it will be necessary to loan attention to the factors determinants of both duels. The battle of the cards also will play in the coliseo 'azzurri', since Sergio Busquets and Nélson Semedo are apercibidos. The two planted in the border of the two yellow cardboards in the phase of groups, and if they see a more, will have to fulfil a party of sanction.
The commitment in the City Condal is loomed for the Catalan and the luso, and his mates look in the distance to the possible appointment of chambers. There is until nine footballers with a caution, and if they see another in territory napolitano, could lose the first meeting of the next round. The list includes to the lesionados Ousmane Dembélé, Jordi Alba and Sergi Roberto and also to Junior Firpo, Antoine Griezmann, Clément Lenglet, Leo Messi and Arturo Vidal.
Gennaro Gattuso has fewer problems with regard to this factor, at least of immediate form. His apercibidos are Kalidou Koulibaly, that for the moment is lesionado and is doubt to measure to the Barcelona, and Fernando Llorente, that also could be punished for the turn but that does not appear between the theorists titled. The ariete navarro is used usually like offensive resource or like revulsivo.
Thinking on a long-term basis, the preparador calabrés also has to seven players with a yellow. The list is shorter but also signals to several key pieces, that would suppose a headache if they remain separated for this reason. The relation has Hirving Lozano, Allan, Fabián Ruiz, Arkadiusz Milik, Matteo Politano, Rui Silva and Piotr Zielinski, that if they are not expelled will be yes or yes in the Camp Nou.
The Barça will not reserve in Saint Paolo
The Barça is conscious that the requirement will be maximum in his visit to the Napoli, but already is smart for a big 'final' in the Champions. The culés have to follow improving but arrive motivated by his last triumphs in LaLiga, that have them aupado to the just leadership before the Classical. Win also in Italy would be the best way to visit Santiago Bernabéu and accelerate in the fight by the titles.
