Napoli manhandle toothless Wolves again

Danes beaten soundly once again by Italian giants

FC Midtjylland were looking to avenge a recent 1-4 home drubbing by Napoli in the Europa League last night, but ended up being taught another footballing lesson as the Italians ran out easy 5-0 winners.

The match was practically over after half-time with Napoli leading 3-0 thanks to goals from Omar El Kaddouri and Manolo Gabbiadini (2). Christian Maggio and Jose Callejon completed the rout in the second half.

Despite two thrashings in a row, the Danes still sit second in Group D on six points – two points ahead of Club Brugge who beat Legia Warsaw 1-0 at home in the other fixture last night.

Two chances
And with two games remaining, FCM could secure a place in the knock-out stage on November 26 when the team takes on the Poles in Warsaw. A win there and a Club Brugge loss against undefeated Napoli would seal the deal.

If that doesn’t happen, the Danes can still progress by beating Club Brugge at home on December 10 in their final match.
