As reported on ESPN Deportes on Wednesday after the game ended, Napoli won the match at home 2-0 against the Arsenal.
However, the Italian club team needed to win by at least three goals if Borussia Dortmund won their match against French club team Marseille. Well, Dortmund won 2-1.
Napoli ended up in third place of Group F with 12 points, same as second place Arsenal and first place Dortmund. The tie breaker of goals differential did not favor the Italian team and eliminated them from the UCL tournament.
The two goals scored in the game were made by Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain and Spaniard striker Jose Maria Callejon.
This was definitely a year of heartbreak for SSC Napoli in the UCL tournament for failing to get out of group play, especially with a tie breaker of goals differential.
Now, SSC Napoli will concentrate on getting a title in Serie A, the Italian domestic league, as they sit in 3rd place.
