Barcelona confirmed on Tuesday that next week’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Napoli will be played behind closed doors.

The game is the latest match to be played without supporters due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It’s already been confirmed that Valencia’s clash with Atalanta and Paris Saint-Germain’s game against Borussia Dortmund will be played behind closed doors.

Meanwhile, all sport in Italy has been suspended until April 3 in an effort to contain the spread of the virus.

Barcelona and Napoli head into the match with the tie level at 1-1 after the first leg at the Stadio San Paolo.

Dries Mertens opened the scoring in Italy but Antoine Griezmann’s away goal means the Catalan giants have the slight advantage ahead of the return.
