Naples and Frankfurt multiply the chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Europa League

NAPOLI and Eintracht Frankfurt have increased their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Europa League after both beating their respective opponents in the group stage game.

Coming to the Polish Army Stadium, Poland on Friday (5/11) early in the morning WIB, Napoli beat host Legia Warszawa with a score of 4-1.

Napoli had been left behind until half-time due to Mahir Emreli’s quick goal for the hosts in the tenth minute.

Luciano Spalletti’s team came back in the second half and equalized on a penalty from Piotr Zielinski in the 51st minute.

Napoli got another penalty in the 74th minute after Josue fouled Matteo Politano in the restricted area and this time Dries Mertens served as the executioner to give the visitors a 2-1 lead.

Napoli’s momentum continued as Hirving Lozano increased his lead in the 78th minute before Adam Ounas completed the win to make it 4-1 just at the end of regulation time.

The victory saw Napoli take first place in Group C with seven points, moving Legia to second place with six points.

Legia’s position could drop further as another Group C game between Leicester City and Spartak Moscow takes place later.

Frankfurt also won away from home after beating Olympiakos 2-1 during their visit to Georgios Karaiskakis stadium in Greece in the Group D game.

The hosts also had an early lead thanks to Youssef El Arabi’s 12th-minute goal, but Frankfurt only needed five minutes to equalize after Daichi Kamada completed Rafael Borre’s pass.

Frankfurt finished their comeback to snatch a spectacular victory with Jens Petter Hauge making a quick counterattack in the first minute of added time.

Frankfurt temporarily dominated the Group D standings with 10 points, four points ahead of second-place Olympiakos. (Ant / OL-1)
