(AIK played Napoli in the Europa League group stage last fall, therefore the comparison).
Ivan Turinia, who had a huge game against home team Timbers, was happy with the 1-1 result and impressed by the opponent.
– It was a tough game for me, a lot to do towards the end. But we did well defensively. They (Timbers) played very, very well today, perhaps maybe even better then Napoli. They played with the same tempo from the first to the last minute, and it was an incredible tempo. And they had good quality. We should be happy with the 1-1 result.
