Napoli's striker Mertens: Barca play incredible football but we're feeling confident

Ever since appointing Gennaro Gattuso as there, new coach Napoli has been in great shape ahead of the clash between out of form Barcelona and their striker believes they can win Barcelona.

The Belgian admits the upcoming game isn't going to be easy as the Catalans play incredible football.

He hopes his side manages to score against the Catalans.

"At home, they play incredible football and it's going to be difficult. But we're feeling confident," Napoli's striker Dries Mertens told UEFA's official website ahead of the Barcelona game in the Champions League round of 16.

He added: "The only negative from the first match was conceding a goal. The key will be to score because if we don't, we'll be out. If we prepare ourselves well, anything could happen."

The Belgian scored his side's only goal in the 1-1 draw at Napoli's home ground in the first leg of the tie in February.

The return match is set to take place at the Camp Nou stadium on August 8.
