Barcelona looked to keep their Champions League dreams alive at the Camp Nou against a young and talented Napoli side in their round of 16 second leg.
And thanks to his expected brilliance, Messi’s side advanced to the quarterfinals.
A trio of first-half goals gave the La Liga side a 3-1 win over their opponent, providing a 4-2 aggregate win that saw Barcelona through to the final eight.
Lionel Messi, who had a lot on the line entering, scored a fantastic goal in the first half to help build an early 3-1 halftime advantage against their Serie A opposition. Luis Suarez and Clement Lenglet also contributed to the lead with goals of their own, while all Napoli was able to respond with was a penalty from Lorenzo Insigne. The halftime score held for the final 45, ensuring Barcelona’s date with Bayern Munich on Friday.
