Elseid Hysaj's Naples seems to be heading toward the groups' stage in Champions League after a 2-0 victory against Nice in the first play-off match. The Italian team dominated the match thanks to a qualitative performance of the entire group of players. The goals of Mertens and Jorginho in 13th and 70th minute sealed the victory.
Meantime Nice experienced numerous difficulties and was forced to end the match with 9 players due to the expulsion of Koziello and Plea.
The Albanian player entered the field as starter-player and was among the best elements in the field becoming an unsurpassable obstacle in the right wing of defense.
The 2nd play -off match will be played next Tuesday but this victory increased Naples chances to reach the group's stage.
