With the arrival of coach Luciano Spalletti, last season Napoli looked capable of fighting for the Scudetto. They started the campaign at full speed and until early-December they were topping the Serie A. Then, a few stuttering performances saw them losing ground from the two sides from Milan and finishing 3rd, 7 points away from the eventual leaders. However, they have the best defence of the league, with only 31 goals conceded, like Milan. With Spalletti confirmed in charge of the team, the summer saw Napoli undergoing major changes. First of all, they let go of several protagonists of their recent past: they parted ways with creative genius Insigne, 16 years at the club between the junior and the senior teams, and then it was also goalie Ospina’s turn to quit, after his best season at the club. Centre-back Koulibaly, arguably one the best Serie A defender, was then let go to Chelsea for a lot of money. Last but not least, Mertens, Napoli's best scorer ever, was not offered a deal extension and subsequently released. With Ospina gone, Meret is at last expected to become the number 1 in goal, but he might be on the departure list too, which would leave them in big trouble ahead of the league kickoff. South Korean centre-back Kim arrived from Fenerbahce and he is set to replace Koulibaly in the heart of the defence. Ostigard, promising at Genoa last season, should represent his alternative. Olivera, on the other hand, should become the starter at left-back, with erratic Mario Rui making a step back to the bench. While they succeeded signing permanently holding midfielder Anguissa, who did well when not injured, 21-year-old Kvaratskhelia arrived from Georgia to replace Insigne in the heart of the supporters. The fact that Napoli are still on the hunt for a goalkeeper, a solid centre-back, a winger and a back-up striker for Osimhen means that the new arrivals are not deemed ready for the Serie A, after all.

Target


Napoli lost too much quality and the squad is still a work-in-progress. They should struggle to make the top 4 this time around.

Season Review
2020/2021

№5: Napoli

Napoli's season is a story of failure. They eventually failed to qualify to the next Champions League, their main goal right from the beginning, in the very last game of the campaign when everything seemed to be on their side. Having obtained a Coppa Italia success the previous season, Napoli maintained their squad basically unaltered, only adding some precious firepower in Petagna and Osimhen. Their start to the season was an extraordinary one as they won the first 4, scoring for fun against Genoa, 6-0, and Atalanta, 4-1. However, it did not last as they lost 2 consecutive home games, to Sassuolo and Milan, between weeks 6 and 8. Three more wins followed, with them sitting on the second place, but then they faced a small crisis, winning only once in 5 and losing 3 between weeks 12 and 16. By then, injuries had started piling up, in particular in the attack. Thus, the following weeks saw them being particularly inconsistent and being eliminated from both the Coppa Italia and the Europa League. In week 24 Napoli were sitting on the 7th spot and their Champions League ambitions seemed to be over but then they started an unstoppable march characterized by 11 wins, 3 draws and just 1 defeat (to Juventus). They went into the last game of the season in the top 4 and with a favourable home clash against Hellas Verona. Despite taking the lead, they failed to win and were eventually overtaken in the table by the Old Lady. Napoli certainly paid a heavy toll for the injuries that plagued Ospina in goal, Koulibaly at the back and Osimhen, while he was at his best. Moreover, they had important players like Zielinski or Bakayoko who failed to be consistent and were at times disastrous. On the other hand, captain Insigne set his scoring record with 19 goals and 7 assists. Coach Gattuso managed to keep the squad together in the darkest hours and to obtain results even when injuries accumulated, but that was not enough for him to earn himself a confirmation for next season.
