  • Pre-match thoughts:
  • Top of the league, having a laugh. Today's match was a clash between possibly the two most in-form teams in the league right now.
  • Bernardeschi starts as Sousa shuffles his deck.
  • Will the match even go ahead? After the Naples city council had their latest face-off with the club over the stadium, there was the threat that the match would have to be called off.
  • Half-time thoughts:
  • Probably edged the first half. Both teams looked good, but Fiorentina had the better chances.
  • Lots of nice direct passing, trying to find space behind Napoli's center backs.
  • Please be OK Borja. Please be OK Borja. Please be OK Borja. Please be OK Borja.
  • Full-time thoughts:
  • Who was better, Bernardeschi or Iličić?
  • The defense's half time decision to collectively take horse tranquilizers.
  • Tomovic should be placed in a canon and shot directly into the center of the sun. Discuss.
