Napoli vs Fiorentina [Recap, March 23]

Fiorentina managed to pull themselves together and win 0-1 against Napoli, thus putting enough distance between them and Parma. The bet we placed with William Hill on both teams to score and Napoli to win didn’t pay off, perhaps due to the fact that the hosts were left with 10 men in a match that otherwise they would have won without any problems.

Napoli heavily relied on Higuain to open the score and he almost did that 10 minutes in the game after receiving a long pass from Pepe Reina. Fiorentina’s goalkeeper should have gotten Man of the Match award, as it was his saves that kept the score level up until the 87th minute when Joaquin scored from inside the box.
We think the fast paced match broke on the 37th minute when Napoli were left with 10 people after Ghoulam fouled Marko Bakic and received a straight red card. Callejon still tried his luck with an offensive action engineered by himself only but Neto was as always in place and cleared the shot. In the second half all Napoli could do is capitalize on counter attacks as Fiorentina was pushing forward to break the deadlock.

Joaquin broke through the left wing closer to the end and passed the ball to Matri whose header ended up being way off target. The only goal came as a result of Joaquin finding Pepe Reina all alone as for some reason Napoli was left with no backline and after this result with literally no hopes of finishing second in Serie A.

Result: -6 units, bet lost
