Barcelona will be playing in the Europa League match for the first time in the 21st Century. The last time Catalunya participated in the tournament was in 2003/2004. That was a long time ago and when we look at the experience level, Napoli is more conventional with the Europa League.
They have Victor Osimhen that has been causing problems in Europe this season. Four goals for him in the Europa League, ten goals in the Serie A. Coming against a player of his physical ability is a huge worry for Barcelona. They have got old players in their defensive line, Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique, and Dani Alves. With Ronald Araujo being doubtful to play this evening, it can be a walk in the park for Victor Osimhen and the Napoli team.
While Xavi is focused on taking control of the possession, his eyes must be fixated on how to stop Osimhen at Camp Nou. If he gets the time and space in the 18 yards box, he will cause heavy damage and might probably shatter Barcelona’s dreams of winning the Europa League title.
