BARCELONA travel to Naples as they look to keep the European route to next season’s Champions League open.

The Catalans were stunned by Benfica as they were knocked out of this season’s Champions League group stage.

And they were held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg following a dogged display from the visiting Italians at the Nou Camp last week.

Ferran Torres netted an equaliser from the penalty spot after a goal from Piotr Zielinski, but the Man City star will feel he could have won it for Barca after missing two sitters.

But the good news for Xavi’s side is that away goals no longer count double, so the teams head to Italy on level terms.
