Why is Barcelona a safe bet to win?

Barcelona is in the midst of a season form turnaround. Lewandowski and his mates struggled early in the season. But in recent weeks, Barca has picked it up.

Wins over Getafe 4-0, Celta Vigo 2-1, and Mallorca 1-0 are signs Barca is in their best form of the season. The draw versus rival Athletic Bilbao happened on the road where Barcelona was an underdog. Barca should play great in front of their fans.

Barcelona vs. Napoli Betting Prediction

Napoli versus Barcelona projects as a tight match, but it may not be. The Napoleons had a chance to get a goal up on Barcelona but could only score the draw.

Now that Barcelona is at home, expect Lewa, de Jong, Pedri, Christensen and the rest to get it going early. Barcelona has begun the gel the way their fans expect and because of that, the team should roll Napoli.

Napoli doesn’t have the roster to contend. Expect Barca to win this by more than a goal.
