Sokratis calming down Koulibaly by holding his face as Arsenal knocked out Napoli.
The match ended with a 0-1 score for Arsenal, who knocked out Napoli with an overall score of 3-0.
A very good performance from Arsenal in both matches as Napoli never really had a chance in this tie.
Arsenal could have won this match with at least 2-0 score, but Meret made a great save on Aubameyang.
There was one funny incident when Napoli had a corner kick. Nothing resulted from that corner kick as Koulibaly ended up on the ground.
Koulibaly started arguing with Arsenal players, particularly with Sokratis. Arsenal defender decided to take matters in his own hands, even showing his captain away, and calmed down Koulibaly.

Last season, they faced Atletico Madrid and failed while they will face Valencia this season.
