De Guzman: Swansea unlucky to lose

Jonathan De Guzman felt Swansea were unfortunate to be knocked out of the Europa League by Napoli on Thursday night, claiming they had dominated proceedings at the Stadio San Paolo.

The Swans were on course for a place in the last 16 when, with 12 minutes to go, they were holding their hosts to a 1-1 draw.

De Guzman's goal would have taken the Premier League side through on away goals, but moments after Wilfried Bony missed a presentable headed chance, Gonzalo Higuain put Napoli in front before Gokhan Inler sealed victory in a frenetic finale.

"I think it was an unfair reflection," De Guzman said. "It was just very unlucky. I think if we had scored, it would have been a different game, but we were just unlucky.

"If you look at the chances we had, I think we were dominating the game more or less but if you don't take your chances, you don't win the game. Looking back on both games, we created so many chances that we could have scored plenty of goals, but if you don't score, you don't win."

Like in the first leg a week ago, Swansea played without fear, causing the Serie A side numerous problems.

"We came here with great confidence and I think we showed that on the pitch," continued De Guzman. "We went behind and then came back, and if the score stayed that way, we were going through.

"I think we showed a lot of good football against them in the first leg and coming here, we were very confident too, and we did show some good football at times.

"Napoli did well in the last part of the game and put a lot of pressure on us. We didn't handle it very well, so the better team won today."

That final flourish, which also saw Dwight Tiendalli go close with a header, ultimately ended favourably for the Italians, but not after they had been given a scare by Swansea at the Stadio San Paolo.
