Overcoming Parma at Home, Napoli Rise to Fourth Position

Napoli beat Parma 2-0 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Monday (1/2) in the morning

JAKARTA - Napoli poked into fourth place in the Italian Serie A standings after getting three points in the 20th matchday. Napoli beat Parma 2-0 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Napoli, Monday (1/2) in the morning WIB.


I Partenopei has scored 37 from 19 matches, winning on goal difference from AS Roma, who will play against Hellas Verona one hour after the Napoli vs Parma match ended. Napoli have only played 19 matches, the same as Juventus.

In an unattractive first half, Napoli finally broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute. Solo action Eljif Elmas slipped past three players with a shot that beat Parma goalkeeper Luigi Sepe.




Napoli, who could not dominate the game, spent most of the second half maintaining their advantage. I Partenopei finally breathed a sigh of relief after substitute Matteo Politano's shot in the 82nd minute was deflected to seal the three points for Gennaro Gattuso's side.

Napoli have publicly supported their coach this week as speculation continues that Gattuso could be sacked. However, this victory will further secure the position of the 43-year coach.

Parma remain second bottom with 13 points, two adrift of the safety zone. Parma are winless in their last 11 league games.
