The analysis

Three victories in a row to shore up the second place on the table and keep Ac Milan away. The match had always been under control and Genoa only on a few occasions kept De Sanctis busy. Mazzari gives a chance to Armero from the first minute and confirms Dzemaili (couldn’t be otherwise after the incredible hat trick against Torino last week) alongside Behrami. The first half starts with Genoa that for two times tries to surprise De Sanctis from outside the box but the Keeper is reactive. At 6′ Pandev wastes a great chance created by Hamsik and soon after he shots towards the goal but Frey makes a great save. At 14′ there is a great chance for Napoli. Dzemaili gives a good ball to Pandev who makes a great turn to free himself from the marker and kicks a powerful shot that goes out by only a few inches. At 18′ Napoli goes ahead with Pandev. Cavani passes the ball with a header to Pandev who controls the ball with his right foot and again shots with great power towards the goal, but this time Frey is beaten. 1-0 to Napoli. At 28′ Napoli doubles the lead with Dzemaili. Hamsik passes deep in the box where Dzemaili, left alone, controls the ball and puts it in the left corner. 2-0 to Napoli. At 36′ Hamsik manages to control the ball in a 1 vs 4 but he loses the ball just before shooting. The first half doesn’t offer any other particular action worth to be reported apart from a yellow card given to Campagnaro. The second half starts with Napoli close to the third after 2 minutes. Cavani jumps two defenders and Frey too but Granqvist puts the ball in corner. At 11′ Pandev serves a great ball to Cavani that goes down in the penalty area due to pressure from the defender, but for the ref is all fine. At 18′ Napoli is awarded with a penalty. Hamsik penetrates in the area and he is tackle down from behind. Cavani from the penalty spot kicks it to the left of Frey that saves it. Still 2-0 and another penalty missed by Napoli. At 24′ Hamsik goes in the penalty area and passes to Cavani, but Antonelli puts the ball in corner. Then Ilner takes Behrami’s place and soon after Insigne replaces Pandev. At 37′ Napoli goes close to the third goal again. Insigne from a corner kick serves Hamsik who then gives it to Armero. The Colombian crosses in the penalty area to Cavani that with a great header engage the keeper who makes a great save. At 43′ Armero crosses from the left to the penalty area where Cavani kicks it by his
instep but Frey is very reactive and dismisses the danger. At 45′ another chance for Cavani served by Insigne but he wastes it from a good position. At 48′ there is a good chance for Genoa with Immobile that with a great shot from outside the box engages De Sanctis. Nothing happens until the final whistle. Napoli is now 4 points ahead Ac Milan that drew against Fiorentina. Napoli will go to Milan next week with more confidence as the pressure is all on Ac Milan.
