Napoli crush Olympiacos

Napoli crushed Greek champions Olympiacos 3-0 at the San Paolo in their final pre-season friendly with Marek Hamsik among those on target.

The Partenopei got the better of the reigning Greek title holders to confirm their status as unbeaten in summer tests.

Blerim Dzemaili’s free kick took a crucial deflection to wrong-foot the goalkeeper, while Lorenzo Insigne and Edu Vargas both went close.

Straight after the break Christian Maggio’s angled drive was only parried into the path of the lurking Hamsik.

Insigne turned goal provider, his corner finding Alessandro Gamberini’s header for the former Fiorentina defender’s first goal in a Napoli jersey.
