Robert Lewandowski’s late goal saw Barcelona safely through to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-1 win over Napoli.

Lewandowski’s 83rd-minute effort ended the Italians’ resistance at the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium with Barca progressing 4-2 on aggregate.

The Catalans had stormed ahead with goals in quick succession from Fermin Lopez and Joao Cancelo.

But Napoli hit back through Amir Rrahmani and were threatening an equaliser before Lewandowski’s crucial strike.

The Poland star struck with a close-range finish after neat interplay between Ilkay Gundogan and Sergi Roberto.

Napoli kept fighting substitute Mathias Olivera rattled the woodwork and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia sent a ferocious drive inches wide, but Barca held out.

David Raya was Arsenal’s hero as they won a penalty shoot-out against Porto 4-2 to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in 14 years.

Leandro Trossard’s goal four minutes before half-time levelled the tie at 1-1 on aggregate.

Extra-time could not separate the sides and in the shoot-out, Martin Odegaard and Kai Havertz buried their penalties before Raya tipped Borges Wendell’s spot-kick on to his left-hand post.

Bukayo Saka and Declan Rice then converted and Raya made another fine save from Wenderson Galeno to send the Gunners through.
