Only 15 goals allowed the footballers from the foot of Vesuvius. In the last three away games Naples conceded no goal!
In the remaining competitions it does not run as desired. In the Cup, the southern Italians have already failed in the quarterfinals at Atalanta. In the home game in early January, the northern Italians were more cheerful and utilized their chances better. Also European it is not the season of Naples. In the group stage of the Champions League disappointed the Italians and were only third in Group F. For the 1/16 finals of the Europa League RB Leipzig was an opponent zugelost. In the home game, the Italians took the lead. However, the game slipped out of their hands and the Germans turned the game. With a 1: 3 mortgage Naples started in the second leg.
