Napoli travel sickness

The lack of goals in recent away games is starting to become a concern for the Neapolitans at the wrong end of the season, writes Anthony Barbagallo.

Last season’s 3-0 thumping in Florence was the turning point for Maurizio Sarri and the Partenopei’s Scudetto ambitions in Serie A.
