Barça are the first side to prevent Napoli from attempting a single shot in the first half of a Champions League game.

With the appointment of Francesco Calzona, Napoli are the third Italian side ever to have three different managers in a single Champions League campaign, after Internazionale in 2003-04 and Roma in 2004-05 (both three).

Barcelona have progressed from each of their last 20 two-legged knockout stages in the UEFA Champions League when avoiding defeat away from home in the first leg, in a run dating back to the 2005-06 campaign.

With his 81st Champions League game for FC Barcelona, Marc-André ter Stegen overtakes Dani Alves (80 CL games) – of all non-Spanish players, only Lionel Messi has played more CL games for the Catalans (149).

Victor Osimhen has scored six home goals in UCL with Napoli (all in the last six home games), joining Lorenzo Insigne in terms of goals in home games with the Partenopei in the competition; only Dries Mertens (11) did better.

Robert Lewandowski (35 years, 184 days) has become the oldest goalscorer for Barcelona in a Champions League knockout game, surpassing Lionel Messi’s previous record (33 years, 259 days against PSG in March 2021, also in the last 16).

Barcelona have had just 0.7 expected goals in this match against Napoli, their lowest xG in a game this season in all competitions.

Barcelona didn’t allow the opposition a single first half shot for the first time in the Champions League since December 2016 against Borussia Mönchengladbach and for the first time in the knockout stages since May 2011 in the semifinal against Real Madrid.

Barcelona have only won 1 of their last 10 away games in the knockout stages of the Champions League (D4 L5), with that victory coming vs Manchester United in April 2019 (1-0). They’ve only scored 4 goals across these 10 matches, failing to score at all in 6 of them.

Robert Lewandowski has scored or assisted 7 goals in his last 7 games in all competitions for Barcelona.

Barcelona have only kept two clean sheets in their last 14 matches in the UEFA Champions League. Indeed, among teams to have played 10+ games in the competition since the start of last season, only Celtic (0) have kept fewer than Barcelona (2) in that period.
