Napoli defeated Juventus 2-1 in a late comeback for the Azzurri, after centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly smashed the ball into the back of the net from close range. The game was a very entertaining one from start to finish, with both keepers being called into making saves time and time again.
Several close calls took place on both ends, and the vigilant keepers helped keep their respective sides in the game. Juventus opened the scoring in the 10th minute after Alvaro Morata pressured Konstantinos Manolas into making a defensive error.
The Spain international would then dribble the ball into the box and slot it at an angle to give the visitors the lead. While the Bianconeri went into the tunnel with the lead at half-time, the second half changed the game completely.
Matteo Politano scored in the 57th minute to level the scoreline after a saved effort from Lorenzo Insigne fell to his feet. The game was lively as ever, and Koulibaly’s goal from a spilt corner gave Napoli the lead five minutes before the whistle.
Juventus were all out of options at this point, and their winless start to the new campaign was confirmed as the referee awarded all three points to the home team. This is the first time in the last 52 games that Juventus have not won any of their first three games, and they are currently in 14th with 1 point from three games.
Napoli, on the other hand, tops the table with a perfect record, resulting in 9 points from three games.
