Raphinha would again had his effort denied by the post at the 17th minute after a successful counter attack but Joao Cancelo was on hand as he reacted first on the loose ball and puts it into the net with his right foot.

In the 30th minute, Napoli came back in the game after the visitors build down the right wing, and Matteo Politano’s cross finds the run of Amir Rrahmani from deep and the center-back hits the bottom corner.

Lamine Yamal made it 3-1 as he taps in a shot from Sergi Roberto following a corner, but the youngster was offside and the goal is correctly ruled out at the 68th minute.

Barca restored their two-goal lead and took a major step towards the quarter-finals as Sergi Roberto made a beautiful one-two with Ilkay Gündogan and gave Robert Lewandowski the easiest of tap-ins.

A fantastic team goal, and qualification was assured at the 83rd minute.
