Palermo delighting their fans at the Barbera Stadium by crushing Napoli considering the draw with Napoli at the San Paolo Stadium.    It’s a super Happy St. Valentine’s Day for Palermo fans.   It’s a step back for Napoli  and might lose the third position.

Palermo opening the score in the 14th minute after an error by Napoli goalkeeper Rafael. It is Palermo defender  Achraf Lazaar  to profit from this mistake and scores the first goal  with a left footed shot to the center from about 40 meters.  The assist is by forward  Franco Vázquez.

Things complicating for Napoli.  In the 36th minute there is a combo goal.  The action following a fast break started by Quaison passing to Paulo Dybala and then there you go forward Vazquez defeating goalkeeper with a left footed shot in the bottom left corner.

It’s a living nightmare for Napoli falling at the Barbera.  Game practically over with the third goal of the match!   Palermo  midfielder Luca Rigoni defeating goalkeeper Rafael from close range in the 65th minute.  The action starting with Dybala to Vazquez and finally Rigoni!

The honor goal for Napoli in the 82nd minute with forward Manolo Gabbiadini.
