Higuain fails to hit target

Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk substitute Yevhen Seleznyov snatched a late equaliser to earn a 1-1 draw at Napoli whose striker Gonzalo Higuain spurned several chances in their Europa League semi-final, first leg last night.

David Lopez put Napoli ahead early in the second half on a frustrating night for their Argentina international Higuain, who saw four second-half efforts saved before Seleznyov struck.

A frustrated Higuain was thwarted by goalkeeper Denys Boyko as the Serie A side pressed for a second goal.

Seleznyov then took advantage of slack Napoli defending to snatch an equaliser with nine minutes left to put the Ukrainians in pole position for a place in the final in Warsaw.
