The Champions League has finally returned. Barcelona will host Napoli at Camp Nou on Saturday the second leg of the round of 16, more than five months after their 1-1 draw in Naples in the first leg. The two sides met at the Stadio San Paolo on Feb. 25. Dries Mertens opened the scoring with his 121st goal for Napoli but later limped off with an ankle injury. Antoine Griezmann answered by turning in Nélson Semedo's cross to make it a 1–1 draw and give Barcelona the edge on away goals going into the return leg.

The Blaugrana struggled after they returned from the coronavirus-induced hiatus in June and lost the La Liga title race to rival Real Madrid. The club's limping to the finish line has called manager Quique Setien's future into question–with Lionel Messi's criticism of the club also leading to speculation regarding his future with the only club he's ever known as a pro. Napoli is coming off the conclusion of Serie A's 2019-20 season last weekend. Gennaro Gattuso's side dealt with some frustrations this summer and finished seventh in the league. However, the club secured a spot in the Europa League by beating Juventus 4-2 in a nerve-wracking penalty shootout in the Coppa Italia final. The winner will advance to play either Bayern Munich or Chelsea in the quarterfinals in Portugal next week. Bayern leads Chelsea 3-0 on aggregate after their first leg.
