At the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Fiorentina astonished the crowd with a well-deserved 3-1 victory over Napoli. With this victory, Fiorentina sent a message to the best teams in Serie A, letting them know that they pose a serious danger at the top of the league.

After suffering a defeat at home to Fiorentina by a score of 3-1, defending league champions Napoli will head into the international break in a disheartening fifth position in the Serie A standings. Despite Victor Osimhen’s goal, Rudi Garcia’s team was defeated by the goals of Josip Brekalo, Giacomo Bonaventura, and Nicolas Gonzalez in the UEFA Champions League. The defeat came despite the fact that Rudi Garcia’s team had already suffered a loss to Real Madrid in the competition.

The goals scored by Josip Brekalo and Giacomo Bonaventura each side of a penalty kick scored by Victor Osihmen were sufficient to give the Florence side the victory, and Nicolas Gonzalez scored the game-winning goal in stoppage time to clinch the victory.

With this victory, Vicenzo Italiano’s team has moved into fourth place, passing Napoli in the process.

The away team exerted a great deal of control throughout the first half, and their attacking tenacity was rewarded early on when Brekalo scored his team’s opening goal by burying a shot from a difficult angle. Fiorentina was in control for many stretches of the game, so it’s understandable that they must have been annoyed with themselves when they allowed Napoli to get back into it.

The goalkeeper for Fiorentina was left in a difficult position after receiving a careless ball back from Pietro Terracciano. As a result, he had no choice but to pull down Victor Osihmen, who got back up and scored the penalty kick.

If the home crowd believed that the present from Fiorentina would boost their morale, then they were gravely incorrect in their assessment of the situation. After Bonaventura’s well-executed race, the Florence team regained the lead, and they guarded their territory with great vigilance as the race’s final minutes ticked away.

Fiorentina attempted to strike on the counter as Napoli searched for an equalizer, and their strategy paid off in stoppage time when Gonzalo Gonzalez struck from close range after fine work from Fabiano Parisi. Napoli had been hunting an equalizer.

As a result of the victory, Fiorentina has moved into the top four of the standings, leapfrogging Napoli in the process, and they will now try to improve upon their strong start to the season.
