The Premier League outfit had the lion’s share of the ball in the first half, and the Belgium international feels his normally ruthless attackers should have hit the back of the net.
“It was more open than I would have hoped. We should maybe have scored a goal or two in the first half and it would not have been so difficult in the second,” he told Sky Sports.
An Aleksandar Kolarov free-kick saved City’s blushes and drew them level after Edinson Cavani had given the men from San Paolo the lead, and the defender knows City faced strong opposition.
“It’s a special occasion. Everything is completely different to what we are used to in the Premier League. Today we played against a very good Napoli side, credit to them, they did what they needed to do.
“We’ll just learn from this game and we have a good enough team to see this through,” Kompany concluded.
City have a tricky away fixture against Fulham at Craven Cottage at the weekend, and travel to the Allianz Arena to take on Bayern Munich in their next European fixture in a couple of weeks time.
