Highlights: Napoli 0-2 Sassuolo

Sassuolo surged into second place with their surprise victory away to Napoli thanks to a Manuel Locatelli penalty and Maxime Lopez solo effort.

It was a particularly surprising result, considering Domenico Berardi, Francesco Caputo and Filip Djuricic didn’t make the trip to the Stadio San Paolo.

Dries Mertens wasted a golden opportunity and Andrea Consigli made big saves, but Locatelli converted a penalty for Giovanni Di Lorenzo’s mistimed tackle on Giacomo Raspadori.

There was controversy around the second goal, as while Victor Osimhen complained he’d been pulled back by Marlon, Sassuolo countered and Maxime Lopez scored his debut Serie A strike.
