RESULTS: Barcelona vs Napoli At Camp Nou (WATCH HIGHLIGHTS)

Barcelona kicked off its first ever Europa League campaign with a 1-1 last 16 play-off first leg draw at home to Napoli.

Xavi’s side struggled for fluency in the first half, with Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missing crucial chances, before Piotr Zielinski pounced on a loose ball in the box to fire the Italians in front before the break.

Barcelona slowly edged itself into the tie after the restart with Adama Traore’s cross handled by Napoli defender Amir Rrahmani, allowing Torres the chance to equalize from the penalty spot.

However, the hosts were unable to wrestle control from Luciano Spalletti’s visitors in the closing stages, with Torres and Aubameyang both guilty of wasting more clear cut opportunities to win the tie.
