  • Napoli 1-1 Barcelona: Griezmann grabs vital away goal for Setien's side

Barcelona on the other hand have been dreaming to win the Champions League title again since they suffered disappointment in last two seasons.

Their pressing paid off on the half-hour mark, with Piotr Zielinski breaking free down the right before finding Mertens, who curled a magnificent finish past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Mertens scored his 121st goal for Napoli in all competitions on Tuesday as the Italian side drew 1-1 with LaLiga champions Barca in the first leg of their last-16 tie.

"Napoli have many strong players, Barcelona have something more, but if we play with focus then we can have our chances".

"This Barcelona side has similar numbers to Napoli". Barca was a team reborn at the start of the second period and pulled level in the 57th minute, Griezmann slamming home Nelson Semedo's low cross from eight yards.

Mertens joined Serie A side Napoli from PSV in 2013 and the Belgium worldwide has flourished.

This means Vidal will not be available for the second leg against Napoli in the return leg of the tie, giving a huge blow to Quique Seiten.

As a result of his sending-off for fouling Mario Rui and then butting heads with the defender, Chile worldwide Vidal will miss the second leg against Napoli at the Camp Nou, as will fellow Barca midfielder Sergio Busquets, who was also booked.

"We will not be able to count on Sergio Busquets or Vidal for the return, but we will find solutions to compensate", said Setien.

Barcelona, meanwhile, sit atop La Liga, two points ahead of Real Madrid ahead of El Clasico this Sunday at the Bernebeu.

The Chilean International has no one else to blame except for himself, he made an ugly tackle on Mario Rui, after which both were involved in a heated confrontation, Vidal was seen by the referee clashing head with Rui.

Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso was left frustrated at the result after his well-drilled defence largely stifled a quiet Lionel Messi and co. On average they have 13 shots on goal, but they concede as well 13 shots on goal.

"After the equaliser, they opened up a little and we were able to hurt them more. There are moments of tension that players who experience the game with his temperament can have".
