With a score of 2-3, the Viola Gigliati won at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, in a duel that was very costly for the locals, who saw how their opportunity to take the Serie A leadership slipped away.

Napoli must now concentrate not only on Milan but also on overtaking Inter, who are ahead of them in the overall Serie A table with 66 points, with the advantage in goals scored. 

This is how Napoli lost to Fiorentina

Just when everyone thought that Fiore was going to miss their former star, Dusan Vlahovic, who left for Juventus, the club proved that they have more strikers who can do the job of scoring the goals that are needed. 

The actions in the match started very early as in the 2nd minute, Fiorentina's first approach happened, in which David Ospina pulled the ball flush with the central defense at his side.

In the 13th minute, a goal was disallowed by Napoli, when Fabián Ruiz made a kind of cross and shot, to find Osimhen and push it into the back of the net, but the Spaniard was offside.

But in the 29th minute of the match, Nicolás González took advantage of a lack of concentration in the Napoli backline, controlled on the left, just when the two center backs went with the striker Cabral, and left the Argentine alone in the area.

The Brazilian left the ball to the Argentine and Gonzalez volleyed it into the corner of the net. With this goal, the score was 0-1. 

Napoli responded to the first goal, but it was not enough

In the 45th minute of the match, Matteo Politano came out for Hirving Lozano, who was very active in the game but was unable to score for his club as Dries Martens did so in the 57th minute.

That happened when Osimhen made the diagonal, received from the left, and threw it back to Martens, who shot at the near post with power to beat the Fiore goalkeeper and put the score at 1-1.

But Fiorentina did not take long to respond and in the 66th minute, Jonathan Ikoné received the ball in the opponent's area on the left and shot with power to the other post to beat Ospina, putting the score 1-2 on the scoreboard.

Unfortunately for Napoli, this would not be the last goal they would concede, as in the 72nd minute, Arthur Cabral broke free from his marker and left him lying on the ground, to place his shot to the right post, beating Ospina, making the score 1-3.

Napoli would finally close the gap in the 84th minute with a goal by Victor Osimhen, who applied a spectacular volley, as he came stinging to beat Terracciano.

Chucky Lozano's Napoli could not take the lead in Serie A

With this defeat, the team of Mexican Hirving Lozano failed in its attempt to take the lead of Serie A and is left with 66 points, just 1 point behind the leader, Milan, and tied for second place with Inter.

Therefore, if the club coached by Luciano Spalletti wants to win the tournament, it cannot afford another defeat.
