Napoli Hammer Fiorentina 6-0 in Serie a Clash
Napoli won by a clear six goal margin against Forentina on Sunday. This is the Partenopei joint biggest victory of the season and leaves Gattuso’s side in fourth place.
Confidence is running high at Napoli at the moment. Gli Azzuri earned an impressive and and undeniable victory over one of Serie A’s most famous sides, Fiorentina.
Viola’s humbling defeat is yet another alarm sign in a season that has been filled with them. Despite featuring a few excellent players, Cesare Prandelli’s side has struggled with form and finds itself in 14th place.
It was a dream first half for Napoli that put them into a four goal advantage. Lorenzo Insigne, Diego Demme, Hirving Lozano and Piotr Zielinski all scored making good use of Gli Azzuri’s superiority in the center of the park.
After the break, Insigne added one more goal from the penalty, capping off a Man of the Match performance. Forward Matteo Politano added a sixth for Gattuso’s men.
In spite of the score, Fiorentina enjoyed a fair deal of the posession and even managed 11 attepts on goal. Finishin was poor, however, and the patient buildup with which Prandelli’s side attepted to build their attacks allowed Napoli to take advantange on the counter.
Napoli has generally played well in recent weeks, only registering a surprise defeat to Spezia. Next up for Gli Azzuri is the match against Juventus in Supercoppa Italiana, a match that Napoli will now approach with renewed confidence.
