- Here are yesterday Europa League results:
Barcelona was held by Napoli with the final scoreline line 1-1. Napoli took the lead around the 29th minutes, piotr zelinski the goal scorer for Napoli, after Barcelona squander so many chances. Few minutes in to the second half at the 59 minutes Barcelona was awarded a penalty and was scored by ferran Torres, though his performance was quite below average, because he missed some crucial chances during the game but his coach xavi says he is not worried about the young Spanish international.
Ferran Torres was visibly emotional after the match.
Xavi statement on ferran Torres:
The same happened to Luis Suarez, he struggled to score goals in his first few month here, the Barca shirt weigh more than any other one in the world I’m delighted to have him.
Just a quick reminder Barcelona are in the Europa League for the first time since 2003-04.
Kalidou Kouibaly made 11 clearances against Barcelona, the most by a Napoli player in a UEL game this season. He also won 8/10 duels and made three tackles.
Will Barcelona go through to the next round or will Napoli over power the Spanish gaints and move to the quarterfinals, more to expect from this tie.

We are playing an awful lot of nonsensical football, a lot of illogical football and making our opponents so strong.
Our football is also too complicated if we play this way, we’ll sometimes win and sometimes lose but we won’t have success.
