Xavi gave 17-year-old central defender Pau Cubarsí his Champions League debut. A brave move in such a big game.


So…today is my ninth anniversary with Mrs. U. I ask you the question: Which sporting event did you prefer over a personal event (or vice versa)?

After a draw in the first leg, we face a fascinating evening in Montjuic. It still seems a little strange that Barcelona aren’t playing at the Camp Nou and the atmosphere has suffered, but with results consistent we can expect the former Olympic Stadium to be pretty lively tonight.

Barcelona’s form fluctuates a bit. They beat Mallorca at the weekend after a draw in Bilbao, but there is no doubt about the quality of Xavi, who will be hoping everything falls into place tonight.

Napoli are unbeaten in five games in Serie A, including three draws, and they have been incredibly inconsistent all season, which explains why they sit seventh in the table. Their year depends on how they perform in the Champions League.

It may not be a classic tonight, but it will definitely be fascinating.

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT
