Despite a first half that may have given hope of salvaging some much needed points for the home side, Napoli continued its run to European glory in 2014 with a 3-0 win over relegation-bound Pescara. The win leaves Napoli seven points ahead of Milan with four matches to go and kept Juventus from clinching the scudetto this weekend. This match was an uphill climb from the beginning for the home side as a number of their starting XI were missing, [...]

Despite establishing themselves as a mid-table team for 2012-2013, Cagliari last weekend came to Naples determined to give Napoli a game. The home team needed the full three points to firm up their chances at a guaranteed Champions League spot, and the result was an entertaining back-and-forth game that left viewers waiting until late in the game for a decision in this match. While the commentators on BeIn Sport focused on the more high-profile Edinson Cavani, the winning goal was [...]

In the game of the Easter weekend Napoli beat Torino 5-3 as Blerim Dzemaili hit a stunning hat-trick and Edinson Cavani netted a late brace in a thrilling game in Turin. Napoli’s star man Cavani was late in returning from International duty meaning he would start on the bench and goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis was injured so Antonio Rosati was handed a rare start in goal for Napoli. The match started with great intensity with both sides having early chances [...]

Friday in the San Paolo saw table toppers Juventus take on second place Napoli. In a highly anticipated game, both sides came out to play. In what was one of the most exciting and entertaining games of the year, there was no shortage of chances or controversy, as both sides had to settle for a share of points with the 1-1 draw result. Much of the anticipation coming into the game was due to the fact Juventus stood six points [...]

The latest international break has passed and Serie A will return this weekend with possibly the biggest game of the season. It’s number one versus number two as Napoli travel to reigning champion Juventus. Level on points and only separated by 2 goals, this match is surely a must watch. The week off gave manager Antonio Conte some much needed time to refocus his Juventus. They may be on a 46 game unbeaten streak in the league but their last [...]

Unbeaten during their triumphant 2011-12 Serie A campaign, can Antonio Conte’s men defend their crown as they also set their sights on making a positive return to the Champions League? What a difference a year makes. At the beginning of last season uncertainty hovered around Juventus. Antonio Conte had replaced Luigi Delneri and promising purchases were made, yet after a second successive seventh-placed finish in 2010-11, fans were just hoping for a Champions League return. Now Juventus goes into this [...]

We are in the final weeks of a compelling Serie A season and to top it off, we could see a big club get relegated this season to Serie B. Genoa have been in freefall and not have won in the league since early February. Genoa sit one point above the relegation zone and a rejuvenated Lecce side under Serse Cosmi are gunning for them. Here are the top five goals from Week 35 in Serie A. 5. Marquinho Roma [...]

There was some idiotic scenes in the Genoa, as the home side -losing to Siena at the time -were demanded to take of their jerseys by their own ultras. The reasoning; according to this small minority of fans the players were not fit enough to wear the club’s colours. Marco Rossi, Genoa’s captain, ceded to their demands and went about collecting jerseys from his team-mates.  This left Genoa Giandomenico Mesto in tears on the pitch. To their credit, at least [...]

One of the more intriguing battles in Serie A in recent years has often surrounded the fight for fourth place and a chance to play in the next season’s Champions League. Much of its intrigue stemmed from the fact that on some occasions, an unexpected team would occupy that coveted position by season’s end (see Sampdoria in 09/10 and Udinese last year). With Italy losing a Champions League spot, the battle is now centered on third place, and it is [...]

“I think that Napoli are superior to this Chelsea team, Mazzarri’s Napoli are doing better and they have all the cards in their favour to give the English trouble - even at home,” said former Napoli player Moreno Ferrario earlier this week. Whether this is true or not, this is probably not the attitude the Partenopei will want to take into their date with Chelsea at the Bridge tomorrow night. Admittedly, following their 3-1 defeat of the Londoners in the [...]

A date with destiny for both Chelsea and Napoli, who will do battle at Stamford Bridge for a place in the last eight of the Champions League. In winter 1066 Harold Godwinson was thrust to the forefront and took the throne of Anglo-Saxon England after the death of his predecessor Edward the Confessor. His reign was rather short lived and he died in the Battle of Hastings later that year. Harold earned his place in history after a stunning battle [...]

On Tuesday, Napoli host Chelsea in the Champions League Round of 16 — meaning it’s unlikely that this Napoli fan will sleep on Monday night. Chelsea may have hit a rough patch recently, but that’s no guarantee that things will go well at the San Paolo. The partenopei have, how shall I put this…they have a slight problem when they underestimate the strength of their opposition. Yet Chelsea did the double just two years ago, winning the Premier League and [...]
