Barcelona v Napoli team news

Barcelona: Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal miss the game through suspension, while Samuel Umtiti and Ronald Araujo are both out.

Ousmane Dembele is a fitness worry and Arthur looks unlike to play. A thigh issue may force Antoine Griezmann onto the bench, but Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are fit.

Napoli: Kostas Manolas misses the game with a rib injury, while centre-back Nikola Maksimovic is doubtful.

Even worse for Napoli is Lorenzo Insigne remains a fitness concern after suffering a tendon injury in their last game against Lazio.

Our prediction: Barcelona v Napoli

Barcelona could be down to just 14 recognised first-team players for this clash but it should still be enough to bypass Napoli if Messi and Suarez turn it on.

Napoli have endured a rocky end to the season and the prospect of Insigne being injured is a major concern.

The visitors will hope to bring the game to Barca but Sergi Roberto and Ivan Rakitic are on hand to dictate play and orchestrate a narrow home win.

Our prediction: Barcelona 2-1 Napoli
