Napoli 2 Arsenal 0 – Arsenal Qualify As 2nd In Group

1 Comment

Two second half goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Callejon gave Napoli a 2-0 over Arsenal at Naples.

Both goals were enough to give Napoli a win, but not enough to see them through as they needed three and Borussia Dortmund picked up an away win in France.

Gonzalo Higuain opened scoring in the 74th minute for Napoli after combining well with subsitute Insigne. Things would later go bad for Arsenal as Mikel Arteta gets his marking orders for a second bookable offence.

The one man down advantage gave Napoli more room and space to press. The pressing paid of in the 90th minute when Callejon lifted the ball over Koscielny and Szczesny into an empty Arsenal net.

Arsenal would now qualify as second just behind Borussia Dortmund who wins the group. The gunners would now expect a very tight fixture in the second round as the big teams won their groups
