Total Italian Football Show (Serie A Highlights) [7/2/13] Preview of Lazio vs Napoli
Serie A - 10 months ago
Watching: Braving conditions not accustomed to Naples, the home support inside the San Paolo were confident Napoli would overcome Catania. Neapolitan belief in their side is based on the teamâ€™s no nonsense approach. After all there is no point hanging around when there are games to be won. A focused determination that has seen the Azzurri emerge as rivals to Juventus for the Serie A crown and make a mockery of the statistics. The Sicilians were played off the park. Strange considering Walter Mazzarriâ€™s team were lagging in 13th-place for territorial supremacy â€“ on a par with Atalanta. Running an extra risk is acceptable when your goalkeeper â€¦ and star striker â€¦ are capable of such quick-thinking. The second-placed team had also completed the same percentage of successful passes as 11th-placed Torino. But why be conventional, when it is better to spring a surprise? Napoli trail weekend opponents Lazio in almost all categories, including ball possession. Where they do not trail Lazio is in the table. The Biancocelesti have been struck a double-double blow: two consecutive defeats and the loss to injury of both Hernanes and Miroslav Klose. Some hope can be found from last seasonâ€™s meeting at the Olimpico. Lazio faced the second half without either of their star players â€“ and still went on to win 3-1. And with Kloseâ€™s replacement, Sergio Floccari, showing he can rise to the occasion, the Biancocelesti support need not feel such a sense of trepidation before the arrival of those unconventional Neapolitans.
