CAGLIARI – Napoli has returned to shine even in the championship. Finally, the Campania team does not have an excellent route plan only in the cups but it also begins to convince in Serie A. Gattuso inherited a desperate situation and was able to rebuild a team identity.

The Campania team is one step away from the Italian Cup final, after winning 1 to 0 in Milan against Inter in the first leg, and with the victory of Cagliari it has also started running again for a place in Europe.

The Sardinia Arena match was decided by a goal by Dries Mertens , another footballer regenerated by the care of Gattuso. Thanks to this success, Napoli moved to five points from the Europa League zone.

Now another season begins for Napoli. The team must try to qualify for the Coppa Italia final, then they must qualify for the Europa League and must try to honor the Champions League, going as far as possible.

It will certainly not be easy against Barcelona but Napoli has shown that it has important numbers since in the group stage it won and drew against the reigning European champions of Liverpool. Here is the match report.
