Barcelona striker Luis Suarez targets Napoli showdown for comeback game

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez hopes to be fit for the Champions League return-leg clash with Napoli.

The round 16 tie sits at 1-1, with Barca to host the second-leg.

Suarez is now undergoing the next stage of his rehabilitation process at home with a his fitness advisor and his progress is also being closely monitored by the medical team at the Catalan club.

The player is recovering well from the knee operation which was carried out in January and at the time many felt that the forward would play no further role in the 2019/20 season.

The uncertainly and delay to activity caused by the outbreak in Europe of the Covid-19 virus could now see the player participate in both league and European competitions when activity is resumed - including the Napoli tie.
