Rafa’s Men Ease Past Dortmund

Former Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuaín scored his first Champions League goal for his new club as Napoli eased past last year’s finalists Borussia Dortmund 3-1 at the Stadio San Paolo.

In his first Champions League since being sacked by Inter Milan, Rafa Benitez will be delighted with his team’s performance as they looked comfortable throughout the 90 minutes, dominating possession and playing attractive football.

Gonzalo Higuaín’s scored in the 29th minute for the games opener before Lorenzo Insigne struck a wonderful free-kick into the top corner from outside the box in the 67th minute.

Dortmund coach Jurgen Klop was given his marching orders from the technical area after remonstrating with the touchline officials following the Italian team’s first goal.

It went from bad to worse for the Germans when goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller handled outside the area and was shown a straight red.

The 10 men of Dortmund managed to claw a goal back through an own goal by Juan Zuñiga in the 87th minute and last season’s beaten finalists will need to improve on their showing in Italy.
