Video: Alexandre Lacazette Bangs Home Stunning Free-Kick for Arsenal at Napoli

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette scored an absolutely brilliant free-kick away at Napoli this evening to all but secure the North London club’s place in the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Having beaten their Italian opponents 2-0 at the Emirates in the quarter-final first-leg last week, Unai Emery’s side were favourites to progress to the last-four as long as they could avoid a monumental disaster in Naples tonight.

After a shaky start, Lacazette provided an insurance policy for the Gunners by banging in his first-ever direct set-piece for the club just beyond the half-hour mark – leaving Napoli needing a whopping four goals without response to progress:

That’s the 27-year-old’s 16th goal of the season, and it could transpire to be one of his most important come the end of the season.

What do you think of the strike?

And how far do think Arsenal will go in this season’s Europa League?
