GRANADA Beat Napoli To Go Through Into The Europe League Round Of 16
Granada, from Spain’s La Liga, in their first season ever playing in a European competition, have this evening (Thursday 25) beaten Italian Serie A giants Napoli, over two legs, to progress through into the round of 16 of the Europa League.
Despite losing 2-1 in the famous Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples, Granada’s 2-0 previous home win at Los Carmenes meant that the Andalucían club qualifies 3-2 on aggregate.
Piotr Zielinski found the back of the Spanish team’s net with just three minutes gone to provide the hosts with the perfect start, but then a goal from Angel Montoro midway through the first half on 25 minutes restored Granada’s two-goal advantage.
Diego Martínez’s men withstood the onslaught from Rino Gattuso’s outfit but then after 59 minutes it was former La Liga player Fabián who scored a goal to give Napoli a glimmer of hope, bringing the aggregate to 3-2, but, it was not to be, and it is the Andalucían club that marches forward to the draw for the round of 16.
