Match background Only this chapter

European debutants Granada's reward for a successful UEFA Europa League group stage is a plum tie with Italian heavyweights Napoli in the round of 32.

• The Spanish club were runners-up to PSV Eindhoven in Group E with three wins, two draws and a solitary defeat – 0-1 at home to the Dutch side on Matchday 5 – that nevertheless coincided with their qualification. Napoli were taken to Matchday 6 before their place in the knockout phase was assured, a 1-1 draw at home to Real Sociedad enabling them to go through as winners of Group F.

Previous meetings
• Granada are facing Italian opposition in UEFA competition for the first time.

• Napoli's 2019/20 European campaign ended in Spain as Barcelona overcame them 3-1 at the Camp Nou in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 to complete a 4-2 aggregate victory. A 1-0 win in San Sebastián on Matchday 2 this season means the Partenopei's all-time record in Spain is now W3 L6, that victory over Real Sociedad ending a run of four straight defeats against Spanish hosts.

• The Italian side have lost six of their seven two-legged knockout ties against Spanish opposition including all of the last five, their sole success coming against Valencia in the 1992/93 UEFA Cup first round thanks to a 5-1 first-leg success in Spain that remains their joint biggest European away win.

Form guide
• Granada earned a historic first qualification for European competition by finishing seventh in the 2019/20 Spanish Liga, having been promoted just the season before.

• Diego Martínez's side began the club's maiden continental voyage in the UEFA Europa League second qualifying round, kicking off with a 4-0 win at Albanian side Teuta before sealing further progress with a 2-0 home win against Locomotive Tbilisi of Georgia and a 3-1 play-off success against Malmö in southern Sweden.

• The Andalusian side made an impressive start to Group E, winning 2-1 at PSV, and although they lost the return fixture, a double over Omonia (2-0 a, 2-1 h) and two goalless draws against PAOK enabled them to advance into the round of 32 in the Dutch club's slipstream.

• Granada's record in this debut European campaign is W6 D2 L1. They have conceded just four goals in those nine matches, never more than one in a game.

• After four successive seasons in the UEFA Champions League, Napoli returned to the UEFA Europa League this term – as winners of the Coppa Italia, which they claimed under new coach Gennaro Gattuso after a penalty shoot-out victory against Juventus in the goalless final. Seventh in Serie A, they also reached the UEFA Champions League round of 16 after qualifying unbeaten as runners-up to Liverpool in their group.

• The 1988/89 UEFA Cup winners have competed in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase on seven previous occasions, four times after coming through their group. They have never failed to qualify from their section and progressed as group winners for the third time this season, recovering from an opening 0-1 home defeat by AZ Alkmaar to qualify on 11 points, two more than Real Sociedad and three more than AZ, with whom they drew 1-1 in the Matchday 5 return. Six of their points came at the expense of bottom-placed Rijeka (2-1 a, 2-0 h).

• Napoli have won only three of their seven previous UEFA Europa League round of 32 ties, against Swansea in 2013/14 (0-0 a, 3-1 h), Trabzonspor the following season (4-0 a, 1-0 h), when they progressed all the way to the semi-finals, and Zürich in 2018/19 (3-1 a, 2-0 h). They have fallen twice to Spanish side Villarreal at this juncture, in 2010/11 (0-0 h, 1-2 a) and 2015/16 (0-1 a, 1-1 h), and also to Viktoria Plzeň in 2012/13 (0-3 h, 0-2 a) and Leipzig in 2017/18 (1-3 h, 2-0 a).

• While Napoli are on an unbeaten away run of seven matches in the UEFA Europa League group stage (W5 D2), they have lost their last two games outside Italy in the competition's knockout phase, giving them an away record post-Christmas of W4 D2 L7.
