Napoli reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in their history after a historic 5-0 aggregate win over Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt.
Victor Osimhen scored a brace in the second leg, including a towering header, while Piotr Zielinski added another goal from the penalty spot. Napoli’s victory also means that it is the first time since 2005/2006 that three Italian teams are in the final eight.
The build-up to the match was marred by violent clashes between Eintracht fans and local police, with Atalanta ultras also getting involved. However, when it was time, the game proceeded smoothly with Napoli dominating throughout.
Alex Meret made some crucial saves to keep a clean sheet, ensuring that all three Italian clubs advanced to the quarter-finals without conceding a single goal in the Round of 16.
Napoli’s next match is against Torino in Serie A, while Eintracht Frankfurt will face Union Berlin in the Bundesliga. The Italian side will be hoping to carry their winning momentum into their upcoming fixtures as they continue their quest for glory in the Champions League.
