Napoli just crushed Fiorentina humiliating them with a mega goleada 6-0 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium on Sunday 17 January 2021 winning the Serie A Week 18 game!!

Napoli, who were heavily criticized for the Covid-19 rumors among players, silenced the critics on the pitch and hello, what a way to silence them!  It’s a super victory not only for the team, but for Coach Gennaro Gattuso and the City.  The victory helping Napoli climbed from the 6th to the 3rd position above AS Roma reaching 34 points and having better goal difference. Fiorentina stepping down to the 14th with 18 points. Goals by Lorenzo Insigne with a brace, Diego Demme, Hirving Lozano, Piotr Zielinski and Matteo Politano.

Napoli climbing from the 6th to the 3rd position.  That’s how important this victory is gold! We might say it rained goals at the Stadium and no umbrella protecting Fiorentina. Imagine, Napoli are the only team in Europe’s top five leagues to score four or more first-half goals on two occasions this season, having done so against Atalanta in October 2020.

Napoli opened the score in the 5th minute  starting the flood with Captain Lorenzo Insigne defeating Fiorentina goalkeeper with a right footed shot to the bottom left corner. The assist is by Andrea Petagna.

Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso must have felt this defeat just as a bullet ! It’s so painful to watch one’s team to lose so badly.

Here is NAPOLI official starting lineup – formation by Coach Gennaro Gattuso:

Napoli (4-3-3): Ospina; Hysaj, Manolas, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Zielinski, Bakayoko, Demme; Lozano, Petagna, L. Insigne.
