Barcelona midfielder De Jong: Alaves win sets us up for Napoli

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong was happy with the way they signed off for the season against Alaves.

Barca won 5-0 as they now focus on the second-leg of their round of 16 Champions League tie against Napoli.

De Jong stated, "We have done better. We have faced them more as a team, but we must continue to do so because the Champions League will be much more difficult.

"The intensity is better and so is the pressure. Sometimes when we lost a ball we didn't squeeze as much. We have been better organised, but now we focus on the Champions League.

"It is very important to have finished like this because of the confidence and the sensations. We will clear our minds and we will arrive in the best possible way for the match against Napoli."
