Rangers vs Napoli: Napoli after an impressive disp;ay at home against Liverpool, travelled to Scotland with high hopes.
However, the first half was pretty difficult for the Italians. With that being said, things escalated quickly in the second half. I started with Sands getting sent off. Following which the Neapolitans eased their way to a 3-0 win.
Both coaches seem to agree with the fact that Rangers did not deserve to lose 3-0. Here is what they said about the Rangers vs Napoli.
Luciano Spalletti, Napoli coach: “After an evening like this, you have to keep quiet and congratulate the players because they played a great game. We won the game even though in the first half we didn’t make good use of our quality. We are living these evenings here for the great job done last year”.
“A match like that gives you the opportunity to evaluate the growth we have to make, for example the reaction after the missed double penalty was great. The team continued to press, to play. Politano demonstrated personality in taking the second penalty. Zieliński also showed great strength of spirit, for me he was the best on the field. We are very happy”.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst: “The performance was really good, the result wasn’t good. I don’t think we deserved a 3-0 loss. If you see how the game went on, how we reacted after last week, we were well in the game from the first minute with some big chances. With 10 men and 1-0 down you have to take some risks, but we’re disappointed because we were well in the game at eleven v eleven.”
