Barcelona’s Champions League last 16 second leg match with Napoli scheduled for today will take place without spectators due to fears over the spread of the coronavirus, a club spokesman said yesterday.

The match will take place at Camp Nou after a 1-1 draw in Napoli, but no supporters will be allowed to enter the stadium.

The Paris St Germain and Borussia Dortmund match tonight will also be played behind closed doors, as was yesterday’s Valencia and Atalanta clash.

“The Champions League match scheduled for Wednesday, March 18, between FC Barcelona and Napoli, will be played at Camp Nou behind closed doors,” said Barcelona in a statement.

The Spanish Health Ministry had said sport fixtures expected to draw crowds from zones designated as high-risk for coronavirus would be played without spectators.
