Barcelona cruise Napoli past to book round of 16 spot with fine performance

barcelona vs napoli

Barcelona advanced to the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 with an impressive performance away from Napoli.

The Blaugrana went to Naples knowing they needed a win to improve as they played the first leg at the Camp Nou.

And it did not take long for them to undermine their authority at the Diego Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

Goals from Jordi Alba and Frenkie de Jong put Barca in control for 13 minutes.

The first goal was a split in the corner when Adam Traore defeated Jordi Alba to finish.

De Jong then scored in a fine effort to bend, his first European goal for Barca.

However, it did not go well, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen releasing a foolish sentence. Lorenzo Insigne changed.

Gerard Pique then returned the lead in the middle of the night with a well-executed volley inside the box and a fine finish from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang followed by Adam Traore’s fine performance.

Napoli will score another goal through Matteo Politano with three minutes left, but it was too late, too late and Barcelona went on to win 5-3 and win 4-2 at night.
