Champions League: Barca held by Napoli; Bayern thrash Chelsea


Antoine Griezmann rescued a 1-1 draw for Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 match at Napoli.

Dries Mertens gave the Italian side the lead in the 30th minute. It was his 121st goal for Napoli, equalling the club record held by Marek Hamsik.

Frenchman Griezmann struck just before the hour mark to pull Barca level.

The La Liga side ended the game with 10 men after Arturo Vidal was sent off with two minutes to go after picking up two yellow cards.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich crushed Chelsea 3-0 at Stamford Bridge, thanks to a brace from Serge Gnabry.

Robert Lewandowski got Bayern’s third before Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso was sent off in the 83rd minute.
