A goal by Lacazette ends the dreams of Naples in Europe

The 'Gunners', after the 2-0 first leg, also won in San Paolo thanks to a free kick by the Frenchman, who interrupted the comeback attempt of the Ancelotti team.


Arsenal managed a deserved pass to the semifinals of the Europa League at San Paolo, almost without getting upset: the desperate attempt to come back from Napoli, after the 2-0 first leg, lasted very little and never frightened Emery's team , who also won in Italy.

The Ancelotti took a long time to get into the game, although in the first part they had occasions to dream about the feat. Cech won a one-on-one with Callejón after a counterattack armed with a great run by Koulibaly and the Italians also had no luck: at their best they scored the 1-0 with Milik, but the referee annulled him for a dubious offside.

Soon after, the Gunners lost Ramsey to injury and, almost at the same time, finished the job. Lacazette's free-kick surprised Meret and sentenced the match. The Italians, with that score, needed four goals and, simply, they stopped believing.

The second half was played without rhythm of game or claw: the English waited for the final whistle and the Azzurri tried, at least, put the tables, mission that was complicated when Insigne left the lawn, replaced by Younes. Meret, with a miracle, he denied the 2-0 to Aubameyang, while Milik failed again receiving in the small area a low center of Mario Rui. It happened a little more: Arsenal will play the pass to the final against Valencia, Naples says goodbye to the last goal of its season, Italy is left without representatives in Europe.
