Napoli games thread 2016/2017

After 9 games Napoli have 17 points as a result of 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. Napoli will face Sarri's previous club, Empoli, at San Paolo without both center forwards as Arkadiusz Milik is injured (ACL lesion for him, return in February) and Manolo Gabbiadini is banned for two games (this one and the one with Juventus) in the week-end.
Possible lineup: Reina - Hysaj, Koulibaly (or Chiriches), Maksimovic, Ghoulam - Allan (or Hamsik), Jorginho, Zielinski - Callejon, Mertens, Insigne

2-1 defeat at Juventus stadium. After the goals scored by Bonucci and Callejon (7th goal in serie A for him in this season, he has already equalized the amount of goals scored in the past season), Higuain scored the winning goal but refused to celebrate it out of respect to Napoli.

Sarri, coach of Napoli, on Higuain: "Higuain is like a son for me. Even if he made me angry I still love him".
Different his comment on Insigne who protested for leaving the pitch: "when he leaves the pitch he must shut up".

Lol, yeah he is pretty dismissive of Insigne in general.


Ana, Napoli don't deserve his class or respect, controversial move, but way they behaved about him has been lowest possible. Even their friggin mayor is neanderthal advocating stupidity and violence.

that is so sad to hear, from napoli i mean, didnt know that...but still, very classy of him, because a club is more than the board atm or even some silly fans at some point...doing what he did, shows even more class given the circumstances

next game he is "free" to celebrate and what matters is he did score ozzie

1-1 at Besiktas. Goal scored near the end of the game by Hamsik, who had just been blamed two days before by la Gazzetta dello Sport "for switching off whenever the tension is high". The defeat would have been a joke, as Napoli dominated and had a lot of chances to score.

1-1 with Lazio. Pretty disappointing week for Napoli, who have been overcome by Atalanta in the standings.

They badly need it to be January right now , they truly can't play without a true CF, a shiny decorative blunt sword basically. Impressive system, good midfield, excellent creative/attacking wingers, but all pointless without a reference point. Latest news is they want Mitrovic from Newcastle.

0-0 with Dynamo Kiev. The final game at Lisboa vs Benfica will be decisive. A draw qualifies Napoli, a defeat eliminates them if Besiktas do not lose at Kiev.

Dynamo Kyiv winning 3-0 after 40 minutes and Besiktas being one man down pretty much seals the qualification of Napoli to the round of 16 of CL, no matter what happens at Da Luz.

Napoli won at Da Luz (2-1) and qualified as the first in the group.

7 goals in 7 days for Mertens (!), a hattrick to Cagliari and a poker of goals to Torino. Yeah, serie A defenses suck!

And we still have italian footie fans who laugh at La Liga every time theres lots of goals p


But impressing showing of Mertens still, historic, no one since Batistuta 22 years ago has scored two hattricks in a row. I wonder how they will line up when Milik is back.
