FC Barcelone (4-3-3)

Ter Stegen (6): The German goalkeeper made a number of important saves to keep Napoli at bay, and was largely comfortable in possession.

Kounde (6): The Frenchman did a good job of containing Kvaratskhelia, Napoli’s most dangerous player. He used his speed and positioning to good effect, and was rarely troubled.

Araujo (6.5): Osimhen got the better of him on a few occasions, but the Uruguayan defender was generally solid and made a number of important interceptions.

Cubarsi (7): The 17-year-old made a very impressive debut, showing maturity and composure beyond his years. He was comfortable in possession and made a number of important tackles.

Cancelo (6): The Portuguese full-back was a constant threat down the right flank, and linked up well with Raphinha. He scored the second goal with a well-taken finish, but was caught out defensively on a few occasions.

Fermin (5.5): He opened the scoring with a well-taken goal, but faded out of the game after that. He was replaced by Roberto on the hour mark.

Christensen (4): He was lucky to escape a red card for a reckless challenge on Lobotka in the first half. He was also at fault for Napoli’s equalizing goal, failing to track Rrahmani’s run. He was replaced by Romeu on the 61st minute.

Gundogan (7): The German midfielder was excellent in the middle of the park, dictating the tempo of the game and creating chances for his teammates. He was involved in the build-up to the third goal, and his performance was one of the positives of the night.

Lewandowski (5.5): He was not as involved as he would have liked, but he still managed to get on the scoresheet. He made a clever run to create space for Fermin’s goal, and his movement and off-the-ball work were a constant threat to the Napoli defense.
