Napoli had not been at the races for the first part of the Serie A season, but the Italian side is getting hot at the right time. It comes into Tuesday's first leg UEFA Champions League round of 16 contest with Barcelona with six wins in its last seven, including wins over Lazio (1-0) and Juventus (2-1), the two teams at the top of the Serie A table.

Barcelona has been tough to figure to figure out of late: sometimes it plays well, sometimes it doesn't. But more often than not, it gets a result.

Barcelona is a huge favorite to advance from the tie (-385), but today, it might be a tough contest for the Spanish side.
