Fiorentina – Napoli 2-2: Great free kick to Kvaratskhelia

Fiorentina – Napoli, scoreboard and statistics


Naples, calzone speaks

“I liked the team in the first half hour, then after the equalizer we collapsed for ten minutes. In the second half we raised our center of gravity, and we played a good match despite the result. Our problem is that we were and are still doomed to win, and this does not help us, but we are moving forward.”. Here are all the words of the Napoli coach.


Italiano budget

“The boys have had another great season and I hope they can finish the season well. We will now think about the Cagliari game and then we will focus on the Athens game.” We have seen that Olympiacos is a team that finishes well and starts again, Their striker constantly scores, and this is an aspect that we must take good care of, and we should not give in to an opponent who, being a final, can make you pay dearly for even the smallest mistake.


Italian words for dazen

“I think we arrived a little tired in the last minutes as we couldn’t keep the ball forward and risked it. In the end a draw is the right result and we will accept it: we will keep Napoli back.” For us, let’s see what the players do with our opponents, remembering that we still have two rounds left. Now the target is eighth place.”


Biraghi’s speech after the match on DAZN channel

“It was a very balanced and difficult match, we faced a great team and found ourselves behind after a few minutes. It took us a while to regroup, but we managed to end the first half with the lead. Which penalty was more? Nice? I must say that Kvaratskhelia scored a good goal, his position was very far away and he charted an important path. “I’m happy to be able to score again, something that hasn’t happened since the match last May against Salernitana.”
