Fiorentina Dominates Napoli and Secures Third Place: A Perfect Race at Maradona

Naples, 8 October 2023 – At “Maradona” it is the Fiorentina to put on a show by winning clearly against the Napoli and confirming the third place. The quality of the game of Italiano and the Viola individuals prevails over a confused Neapolitan team that is always late in all duels. In practice, Fiorentina does everything, given that the penalty that brings Napoli to a temporary 1-1 at the end of the first half is a gift from Parisi who tarnishes a perfect match with that error.

But it’s all Fiorentina playing there perfect race, orchestrated by an Arthur in great condition, with Brekalo and Ikoné on the wings, the usual Bonaventura everywhere, Parisi and Kayode always on point (net of some naiveties), Duncan tidy, Nzola a fighter, Quarta dangerous up front and Milenkovic rocky. Terracciano also puts his best foot forward with two challenging saves and a save on Osihmen.

That of “Maradona”, however, is above all the victory of Italian, of his fast and fun possession of the ball and a spot-on turn over. So much so that the Viola start with Nico Gonzalez on the bench, then in the final quarter of an hour the Argentine made it 3-1 on the counterattack.

Over the course of the match purples dominate, great dribbling, pressing, intensity, speed. In the 7th minute great action with a post from Quarta and Brekalo who scores again. Napoli tries to react but Fiorentina controls until Parisi’s unfortunate mistake (so far perfect): an improvident support on Terracciano who is forced to bring down Osihmen in the area: penalty and therefore a draw for Napoli.

An episode that doesn’t depress the Viola who return to the pitch with the same spirit as the first half and hit the post in the 5th minute with Ikoné. Fiorentina persisted forward, finding the goal with a highly inspired Bonaventura in the 17th minute of the second half with a moving penalty. The angry Neapolitan reaction leads to nothing, indeed in injury time it comes on the counterattack with Gonzalez’s goal served by Parisi (who had already made amends for the mistake on the penalty by anticipating Simeone in the area). The curtain falls, the Viola dream, Napoli wonders how to defend their scudetto.
