However, Barcelona have rallied after the break, with Napoli keeper David Ospina called into action to deny Lionel Messi.

The former Arsenal stopper could little about the visitors equaliser on 64 minutes.

Sergio Busquets profited from a loose ball in midfield, and slipped full back Nelson Semedo in behind the Napoli defence.

The Portuguese international’s low cross was comfortably slotted home by Griezmann at the back post.

Barcelona keeper Marc Ter Stegen keeper Marc Ter Stegen has kept the scores level, with an excellent save from Napoli forward Jose Callejon on 64 minutes.

The main negative from the second half for Quique Setien’s side was an almost inevitable booking for Busquets.

The Spanish international will now be suspended for the second leg at the Camp Nou on March 10.
