Barcelona through to Champions League quarter-finals after seeing off Napoli

Robert Lewandowski's late goal saw Barcelona through to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-1 win over Napoli.

Lewandowski's 83rd-minute effort ended the Italians' resistance at the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium with Barca progressing 4-2 on aggregate.

The Catalans had stormed ahead with goals in quick succession from Fermin Lopez and Joao Cancelo.

But Napoli hit back through Amir Rrahmani and were threatening an equaliser before Lewandowski's crucial strike.

The Poland star struck with a close-range finish after neat interplay between Ilkay Gundogan and Sergi Roberto.

Napoli kept fighting substitute Mathias Olivera rattled the woodwork and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia sent a ferocious drive inches wide, but Barca held out.
