Highlights: Napoli 0-1 Arsenal

By on 18th April 2019

Arsenal have reached the semi-finals of this season’s Europa League where they will face Valencia after a 3-0 aggregate win over Italian side Napoli.

The hosts had come into Thursday evening’s game and the tie as favourites before being gunned down 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium last week.

Both sides looked opened in defence early on before Napoli striker Lorenzo Insigne fired a one-on-one effort into the legs of Petr Cech.

Moments after Aaron Ramsey went off with an apparent thigh injury, Alexandre Lacazette fired home an excellent free kick on 36 minutes to give the Premier League side an away goal and a comfortable aggregate lead.

Napoli rarely threatened after, though fans will be wondering how striker Arkadiusz Milik failed to score his open header among a couple of other chances for the Polish striker.

Arsenal will face Valencia in the semi-finals, whilst Chelsea take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the other tie.
