"I am really disappointed about that", he said. "Hopefully we will find a way to kick it out".

English Premier League side Arsenal have confirmed they are investigating a video, now circulating on Social media, which appears to show one of their supporters racially abusing Napoli central defender Kalidou Koulibaly. "Our objective now is to continue being competitive like we are here, away with our game play for the next matches".

Arsenal manager Unai Emery says anyone partaking in racist behaviour is not welcome at Arsenal.

Reflecting on the result, Emery said: "50 per cent [happy] because we know the first leg was very important for us to take a good result and a good feeling with our supporters with this competition". We have to improve that.

Boston will hope for a similar quick recovery from Smart, as his leadership and defensive presence is the lifeblood of the team. He recently won the Red Auerbach award for the first time, the team's honor for which player best exemplifies being a Celtic.

They have lost both away knockout ties in this season's Europa League to BATE Borisov and Rennes, two teams not considered as strong as Napoli - who sit second in Serie A.

"I think we will play with confidence and I am sure we will do something, because now they have to score goals so they will attack and for sure they will leave space for us". We go there and will try to win the game.

A strike from Aaron Ramsey and an own goal by Kalidou Koulibaly were in the first half were enough to earn a win for Arsenal in the first leg at home.

The Gunners pressed forward repeatedly as the half wore on, but were unable to capitalise despite repeated shots on goal from strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while Napoli had Meret to thank for numerous saves.
