Barcelona is in immovable territory as it hosts Napoli in the Europa League.
Catalan were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich because they needed a win to finish above Benfica.
This leaves Barca out of second place in Europe for the first time since 2004, when he was knocked out by Celtic.
And they could not be drawn hard after being paired with Napoli in the Round of 32.
Luciano Spalletti left until the last day to book his place in the knockout stages of the Europa League.
A brace from Elif Elmas saw him send Leicester to a thrilling 3-2 victory in the Europa Conference League.

Barcelona vs. Napoli face to face
The only competitive fixture between the two major clubs was highlighted in a previous post, but Barcelona and Galilee Azure are also doing their fair share in club friendship.
After facing each other six times in total, the 26-time La Liga champions currently have the right to brag with four wins and Napoli have managed just one victory.
Friendships should be taken with a pinch of salt as they are ultimately placed for the players to regain their fitness but behind the minds of Serie A giants, they would like to break the record head on.
Going through the time portal
Every time they both have qualified for the Champions League, Barcelona vs. Napoli never takes place regularly, which is why it is ironic that they have drawn each other into the Europa League.
However, they did advance to the biggest football club competition in 2020 and a certain Argentine magician grabbed the headlines but admittedly not for all the right reasons.
Lionel Messi stunned the media when the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner said that Barcelona would not win the CL after the incredible performance of the first league which led to a 1-1 draw.
However, the Catalans needed to check this fact because in Round Two, Clement Langlett nodded in front of Barca, Messi danced around four defenders before delivering him home and Luis Suarez knocked him out of the penalty spot with a 3-0 lead. Made 1 and got a place in the quarter finals. Overnight but overall 4-1.
Funny enough Lorenzo Insigne kicked one for Gli Azurri immediately after Barcelona’s spot kick which meant that all four goals were in the first 45 minutes but it proved to be a star as the score line remained the same till the last whistle. ۔
Here are some of the ones I found to be interesting:
To win Barca – 10/11
To win Napoli – 29/10

Oh my gosh ladies and gentlemen because our live blog coverage will show Barcelona welcoming Napoli at Camp Nou in the last 32 matches of Europa League.
Yes, you read that right. The 5x Champions League winners have been relegated to Europe’s second tier club cup for the first time since 2004, and their opponents have no pushovers.
Napoli are in great form this season. Gli Azzuri missed out on the top position in his group due to a head-to-head record and he is occupying 3rd position.rd Place in Serie A, just two points from league leaders AC Milan.
As far as their opponents are concerned, despite the Barcelona crisis, the Catalan giants are still one of the biggest football clubs in the world, and their January window proved that when the former three of the Premier League , Ferran Torres, Adama Trevor and Pierre-Emerick Obamayang made the biggest football club. Switch to Camp Nine.
Over the years, the game has been nailed to Champions League fixtures, but instead, it is another example of how unpredictable football is.
