Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Napoli

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Napoli.

Barcelona will be looking for their fourth straight victory in all competitions when they head to Napoli for the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie on Tuesday night.

The Spanish champions have won their last four in the league to reclaim first spot from Real Madrid, including a 5-0 home success over Eibar on Saturday afternoon.

The Catalan giants will now switch their attention to the Champions League, though, as they look to secure a positive result in the first leg of their last-16 contest.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the match.
