Napoli and Barcelona ended their first leg of their Champions League encounter in a 1 -1 draw.

Despite playing the final six minutes with only 10 men, Barcelona looked in control and will be confident of getting the better of Napoli in the return leg.

Lionel Messi has looked surprisingly off the pace in Naples.

On several occasions he’s not been able to sort his feet out in attack and his passing has been well off his usual high standards.
