Hi everyone welcome
The Italians send no less then five teams to the round of 16, great news for the league and telling on the progress made by some teams
Torino became the first Italian club to win at San Mamés in Bilbao Spain defeating Athletico Bilbao 3-2. With their first ever win in Spain Il Toro booked their place in the round of 16 thanks to 5-4 aggregate victory. Italians Fabio Quagliarella, Matteo Darmian and Argentinian Maxi Lopez got the goals for the visitors while Spanish Andoni Iraola and Óscar de Marcos replied for Bilbao. A dramatic and record win for Il Toro that confirms their excellent form.
Napoli booked their third consecutive trip to round of 16 with 1-0 win over Trabzonspor of Turkey thanks to a goal from Dutchman Jonathan De Guzmán. The Partenopei secured their spot with a 5-0 aggregate win. Although coach Rafa Benitez made five changes in the lineup for Napoli the result was never in doubt.
Roma got their first win on the road in all European competitions with a knockout of Feyenoord Rotterdam. Serbian Adem Ljajić and Ivorian Gervinho scored for the Romans while Dutch player Elvis Manu replied for the hosts. The match was halted due to racist actions of some of the fans towards Gervinho and the general aggressive manner of the Rotterdam fans. In spite of the Romans conquered
.Fiorentina Knocked out Tottenham with a solid 2-0 win and a 3-1 final aggregate. German Mario Gomez and newcomer Egyptian Mohamed Salah got the goals for the hosts. The Viola continue to impress in Europe coach Vincenzo Montella is brilliant in my view, no doubt they will be one of the finalists.
Inter Milan defeated Celtic 1-0 and in so doing progressed to the final 16 thanks to a 4-3 aggregate score. Colombian Freddy Guarin who continues his good form scored for the visitors. Inter seem to have found a good moment at the right time bodes well for the millions of fans around the world.
