UCL: Barcelona must defend well against Osimhen, others – Xavi



Barcelona manager Xavi said it is important for his side to stop Victor Osimhen and other Napoli forwards in their UEFA Champions League clash, DAILY POST reports.

The Blaugurana will be the guests of Napoli in the Round of 16 first-leg tie at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium on Wednesday.

Osimhen is expected to be named in the starting line-up for Napoli after missing last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Genoa.

Xavi reckoned that it is fundamental for his side to defend well in the game.


“It is fundamental that we defend well against Napoli, not allowing Politano, Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia to hurt us in the transitions. They are players who can make the difference,” the Spaniard told a press conference.

“We also know that the second leg is at home, so need to be a little more cautious. We will try to defend in possession, though I imagine Napoli will aim to do the same, especially under a new coach. It’s going to be a complicated match.”
