Napoli got the second win in a line as they accomplished fast work of Bologna, gaining ground on the teams near them in the standings. The Partenopei started well and found their big chance within five minutes of the match and Fabian Ruiz had marked Hirving Lozano in the case with a beautiful ball over the top. The Mexican attacker redirected the ball but Lukasz Skuropski denied him with a great save.
El Chucky successfully got through a quarter of an hour later. The Napoli goal did send Bologna players in overdrive, yet it was not visible on the field as they failed to create any clear-cut chance. The goalkeeper saved the long-range attempt by Aaron Hickey. Azzurri then struck then after the break and set up a two-goal advantage.
