 (AA) – Italian club Napoli defeated Turkey’s Trabzonspor 1-0 in the second leg of their Round of 32 UEFA Europa League match at the San Paolo Stadium in Naples on Thursday night, meaning Napoli qualified for the Last 16 stage of the tournament.

Home team Napoli’s Dutch midfielder Jonathan de Guzman scored the only goal of the game in the 19th minute.

Napoli had already won the first leg 4-0 in Trabzon on Feb. 19, meaning the Italian side won 5-0 on aggregate.

The match between Feyenoord and Roma in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, was stopped by the referee for a while owing to the Dutch fans’ rampancy. It was reported that Feyenoord fans threw several objects into the pitch including a-meter-long inflatable banana balloon against Roma’s Ivorian winger Gervinho.

Roma won the troubled match at De Kuip 2-1 and qualified for the Last 16 in the Europa League.

The draws for Round 16 will be held in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday.
