Barca is 8 points behind league leader Real Madrid. Barcelona will play Napoli in the first leg of the round of 16 Champions League in two weeks. Barca is hopeful of doing great in the Champions League after missing out on the knockout stages in the past two seasons. Their last appearance in the Champions League knockout stages was in 2021 against PSG, where they lost 5-2 on aggregate.
