Barcelona clash with Napoli to be ordered behind closed doors

Barcelona's Champions League clash with Napoli could be staged at an empty Nou Camp.

Napoli are in Spain next week for the second-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie with the aggregate score locked at 1-1.

L'Esportiu reports the Generalitat de Catalunya will rule today that the game WILL be played behind closed doors. This action is part of a series of measures that, little by little, administrations are taking to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Although the city of Naples is not one of the most affected by this pandemic, public bodies want to avoid the travelling of Italian fans who can carry the virus.

Valencia's clash with Atalanta has already been ruled to be played at an empty Mestalla.
