Gennaro Gattuso maintains Barcelona “could’ve been there all night and not scored” against Napoli, other than the single defensive error in this 1-1 draw. “They didn’t hurt us, they barely tickled.”
Dries Mertens had opened the scoring with a curler from the edge of the box, matching Marek Hamsik’s all-time club scoring record of 121 goals, but Antoine Griezmann got the equaliser on 57 minutes.
That was the only genuine shot on target that the Blaugrana had at the Stadio San Paolo, whereas Marc-Andre Ter Stegen was tested on several occasions.
“We could’ve done better on a few counter-attacks, but the team did what we had to do. We allowed them very few opportunities,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia.
