Serie A Wrap: Napoli stunned | Gattuso fails first test - FCNaija

Serie A By: Linus Onyeze | 04/12/2017

For the first time this season, Napoli lost a game and it came, arguably, in their biggest test of the season yet. There was also another first in Serie A over the weekend, as basement boys Benevento got their first point of the season after losing their first 14 games.

What a exciting weekend it was, this is how it went down in Serie A at the weekend.

Inter 5-0 Chievo

Ivan Perisic was the star of the game as his hattrick condemned Chievo to an embarrassing defeat. The win takes the Nerrazzurri to top of Serie, all thanks to Napoli’s capitulation.

Benevento 2-2 AC Milan

The story continues for Milan, as Genarro Gattuso failed to start his reign as manager against the basement boys with a win. The Rossonerri led 2-1 right into the death, before the Benevento keeper headed home the equalizer with virtually the last kick (or head) of the game to earn them their first point of the campaign.

Roma 3-1 Spal

No surprises here, as the capital club got the job done, courtesy of goals from Edin Dzeko, Kevin Strootman and Pellegrini. The win notwithstanding, Roma stay fourth in Serie A, albeit with a game in hand.

Napoli 0-1 Juventus

Just when you expected Napoli to show the stuff they’re made of, they succumb at arguably the first real test of their title credentials. Juventus have hardly been very impressive this season, with Napoli looking like taking the title away from them, but it was their former striker, Gonzalo Higuain, who scored the goal that made the difference.
