Europa League Football Results – Napoli Thrillingly Won 3-2 at Home

In exciting Europa League football results, Napoli thrillingly won 3-2 at home over Leicester City in Group C on Thursday.

They have thus broken into the Europa League knockout stages as the Group C runners-up behind group leaders Spartak Moscow.

Spartak won 1-0 at Legia Warsaw to secure an automatic last-16 berth.

On the other hand, now, Napoli will face a playoff against one of the third-placed teams in the Champions League.

The third-ranking teams in each UCL group have dropped into Europe’s second-tier competition (the football news), where they’ll compete after the winter break.

Meanwhile, third-placed Leicester have descended into the third-tier European tournament, the first of its kind, Europa Conference League. Therein, they will enter a playoff with one of the competition’s runners-up for a last-16 berth.

Early into this match, Adam Ounas fired Napoli into a fourth-minute lead with a crisp low shot. And Eljif Elmas made it 2-0 with a tap-in after unselfish assisting work from Andrea Petagna.

So, the Serie A side appeared to be in cruise control. Sloppy defending cost the home twice in quick succession before halftime, however.

This is because Jonny Evans drilled in a loose ball in the 27th minute. What’s more, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall volleyed in the equaliser with his first goal for Leicester.

Shortly after the break, though, North Macedonia playmaker Elmas put Napoli back in front. He took a tame-looking cross past a static defence before he steered the ball past Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

So, Napoli eventually won 3-2 even after Leicester City came back from 2-0 down to equalize 2-2.
