The 3 Barcelona stars who will miss quarter-final first leg if booked vs Napoli

Three members of La Liga giants’ Barcelona’s squad will be walking the disciplinary tightrope when they return to action later this evening.

This, of course, comes as Barca prepare to put their European campaign on the line, in a meeting with Italian champions Napoli.

After being held to a 1-1 stalemate in the tie’s first leg in Naples, Xavi and co. will now go about putting the stuttering Partenopei to the sword once and for all, to secure their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

And yet, as alluded to above, in their efforts to do so, three members of the Blaugrana’s ranks will be left with little choice but to maintain heavy focus on not overstepping the disciplinary mark.

The trio in question? Ronald Araújo, João Félix, and Sergi Roberto.

All of stopper Araújo, midfielder Roberto and frontman Félix are just a solitary booking away from a suspension on the continent.

Should any of the three be shown a yellow card against Napoli, they will therefore be forced to sit out the first leg of Barcelona’s Champions League quarter-final tie, in the case of the Blaugrana advancing on Tuesday.
