Barcelona 3-1 Napoli: Goals, highlights and report – Champions League 2023/24

Napoli's Champions League journey has come to an end after losing away at Barcelona in the round of 16, meaning the final chance for silverware has passed.


Napoli are out of the Champions League after a 3-1 defeat in their Round of 16 second-leg tie against Barcelona at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys, losing 4-2 on aggregate.

Goals from Fermin Lopez and Joao Cancelo in a two-minute period in the first half seemed enough for the Blaugrana to seal the victory, but Amir Rrahmani pulled one back for the Partenopei. Azzurri substitute Jesper Lindstrom wasted a chance to equalise, which proved costly, as Robert Lewandowski sealed the tie minutes from the end.

Barcelona are in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2019/20 whereas Napoli could not repeat their quarter-final run from last season. The Partenopei play Inter in their next Serie A match, and need to build some winning momentum if they are to return to the Champions League next season.
