‘We will have to risk something more in the return leg’: Piotr Zielinski urges Napoli to be braver against Barcelona at Nou Camp in Champions League
Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski has insisted their Champions League last-16 tie with Barcelona is not over before claiming his team-mates need to be braver at the Nou Camp.
Napoli were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Barcelona in the first leg, with Antoine Griezmann cancelling out Dries Mertens’ superb opener at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday night.
However, Zielinski claims Napoli can still progress to the quarter finals of the Champions League but insists they must show more risks in the second leg.

‘We could have won and done more,’ Zielinski told Sky Sport Italia. ‘But it was a very good game.
‘We have a chance in Barcelona, we have to play our game. We didn’t let Barcelona get a shot on target, it’s too bad with the goal we conceded.
‘They are still great, and we can’t leave anything behind. It’s not over yet, and we will have to risk something more in the return leg. We have a great team and we can do well.’
