Napoli have the upper hand in their Champions League last 16 tie with Chelsea after securing a big win in the first leg last night!

Chelsea took the lead on 27 minutes when Juan Mata volleyed home to stun the hosts.

But Ezequiel Lavezzi leveled before half time with a 20-yard cracker.

Chelsea had chances in the second half, but a goal from Edinson Cavani and another from Lavezzi gave the Italian side a deserved 3-1 win.
