Barcelona secured their place in the second round of the Europa League by defeating Napoli 4-2 in the first half of their tie.

We won 5-3 on aggregate thanks to goals from Jordi Alba, Frenkie De Jong (two), Pique (two), and Aubameyang (one).

Adama Traore, the club's newest acquisition, was instrumental in Barcelona's counterattacking prowess in the first half.

He set up Alba for a beautiful finish past Meret with the first of his two assists.

De Jong's stunning long-range effort gave Barcelona a two-goal cushion just after the break.

Victor Osimhem's tenacity paid off as he was hauled down just inside the penalty area by Marc-Andre ter Stegen and was awarded a penalty.

Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne scored from the penalty spot in what is likely to be his final European match with the club.

Gerard Pique's first Europa League goal of the season put an end to any hopes of a comeback for Barcelona.

After halftime, Barca scored their fourth goal in true Barcelona style with a fantastic passing move.

De Jong set up Aubameyang's fourth goal in two games by wonderfully leaving Traore's low pass open for the former Arsenal striker to finish.

Matteo Politano scored a late goal for Napoli, but it was too little, too late for the Naples-based team.

Xavi will be overjoyed that his team advanced to the next round after playing some of their greatest attacking football in a long time.
