With twenty five left, Napoli netted another brillant goal to make it 4 nil. This time the ball was played to the edge of the penalty area by Pielinksi after a brilliant turn before Dries Mertens scored. Immobile and Savic scored but their goals couldn't save them, before Nigeria forward sealed the match from Gattuso's side.
