Eight days later and Maurizio Sarri’s side are back at it again, this time against Serie A strugglers Spal.

Midfielder Allan was the lucky recipient of Jose Callejon’s final pass, slotting past the goalkeeper to put Napoli 1-0 up.

More triangles than a GCSE maths class about Pythagoras.

Napoli are involved in a tug-of-war with Juventus for pole position in Serie A, with Massimiliano’s side beating Torino in the Turin derby.

The two sides meet on 22 April in what could be a title-deciding game.
