Victor Osimhen scored the equaliser as Napoli fought from a goal down to draw Barcelona 1-1 in Champions League round 16 first-leg, MySportDab reports.

Barcelona started the game on the front foot, dominating proceedings from the start. The Catalans recorded a series of chances but failed to make them count.

Napoli were in contention despite playing second fiddle to the visitors. They covered swathes of attacking and defensive distance but failed to record a single attempt on target in the first 45.

At the interval, it ended barren but it was a frenetic affair all through, marked with pacey attacks and collective blocks.

Barcelona continued on their dominant performance in the second half and it was just a matter of time before they took the lead.

Napoli stepped up their game after conceding. The hosts clawed their charges back into the game and found the equaliser 15 minutes later through Victor Osimhen.

After receiving a pass from Anguissa, Osimhen beat Ter Stegen and fired into the net to even the scores.

After Osimhen’s equaliser, Francesco Calzona made some substitutions that changed the trajectory of the game. Napoli dominated proceedings going forward and were looking set to complete a comeback.

Coming under energetic offensives by the hosts, Barcelona fell back to defend and relied on the counter for offensives. It ended 1-1 after the final whistle.
