  • Swansea bow out. 3-1 in the end does not do justice to the brave effort of Garry Monk's side as Napoli progress to the round of 16.

  • GOAL! Gokhan Inler! That is definitely the end of Swansea's European dreams. With all their men committed to attack, the back door was left open and Inler took advantage, slotting beyond Vorm to give the hosts a more than flattering scoreline.

  • Swansea loft the ball forward and Bony acrobatically steers it towards goal but Reina is alert to pick it up and launch down field.

  • Breathtaking finish here as Higuain is denied by Vorm and then Tiendalli before Neil Taylor is booked for a pull on Mertens.

  • Still Swansea come but they are unable to break through and Napoli are two on one. Higuain and Hamsik exchange passes but Davies puts his body on the line and somehow clears the line.

  • Higuain picks up the ball and Swansea could have been killed off, but Canas was back to thwart the Napoli counter.

  • Napoli look nervous, much to Swansea's credit, as the visitors continue to press forward.

  • Bony rises above the pack but is unable to control his header. Swansea do win a free kick on the right wing however. Lethal header from Tiendalli is somehow tipped over by Reina.

  • CHANCE! Swansea have the ball floated into the box and Bony looks to attack but he is ousted by Reina, who races to punch clear. Swansea have the corner.

  • Canas is caught by Gokhan Inler, who get into the book before Swansea look to press down the right flank.

  • Centre-back Miguel Britos comes on to replace Jose Callejon as Benitez looks to sure up his defence.

  • Flores spreads the ball to the advancing Tiendalli before Bony is caught in possession and Higuain launches the Napoli counter.

  • Final throw of the dice from Monk sees Alejandro Pozuelo come on for Jonathan de Guzman.

  • There is no need for desperation from Swansea yet as they look to find Hernandez in the pocket but he is cut off by Albiol.

  • GOAL! Gonzalo Higuain! That was until now! The Argentinian striker benefits form a lucky break as the ball falls at his feet from an attempted Davies interception and he fires home with venom to put Napoli in the lead. Swansea must now score!

  • Callejon is forced back to Behrami and although they're enjoying the majority of possession, they are yet to make the most of it.

  • Behrami spreads wide to Ghoulam but Swansea are pressing every man and the Italian side have no room to get the killer ball in.

  • Davies breaks clear of Mertens as Swansea make their way into Napoli territory before a heavy lay-off from Hernandez gifts possession to the hosts.

  • Again Napoli attack the right flank but the subsequent cross loops straight into the hands of Vorm.

  • Higuain is free in the right-hand corner, not for long however, as Williams comes in to make the interception and launch clear.
