A controversial penalty decision has allowed Ferran Torres to save a draw for Barcelona against Napoli in the Europa League.

BlueGrana got off to the brightest start and controlled all of the initial conversions in its last 32 showdowns at Nine Camp.

But Xavi’s men still managed to find themselves behind at intervals.

The Serie A team took the lead after half an hour through Plutar Zelensky.

The Polish midfielder was initially denied when his fierce strike after a cutback was saved by Andre Ter Stegen.

However, the ball somehow managed to escape the four Barcelona defenders and found its way straight back to the Napoli star, and this time he made no mistake.

No changes were made to the break as the hosts tried to return and dominated the Serie A club.

Despite their intense pressure, the La Liga giants struggled to succeed with the young Nico, who managed just 20 yards on the keeper.

Finally, with the help of VAR, they got the opportunity just before the hour mark.

Adama Trevor’s cross hit the young Jesus’ hand, and after the referee checked the pitch-side monitor, he gave them a spot kick.

The decision angered the Italians, but former Manchester City man Torres managed to keep his cool for a change.

He waited patiently for Napoli stopper Alex Merritt before heading home for his second Barca goal.

Ousmane Dembele, who turned down an opportunity to leave Barcelona last month to leave as a free agent in June, was introduced off the bench when Angle went for it.

But his arrival was met by a group of Bose when he refused to give the club a chance to earn some money from the cash-strapped club.

Luuk de Jong replaced Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and the Dutchman immediately approached with a bicycle kick.

But Napoli’s all-time top scorer, Dries Martinez, was the one who missed the chance to win.

After finding a place in the box from the cross, he fired his shot but it did not have the strength and he jumped straight towards the keeper to take him to the other leg.
