Raspadori scores again as Napoli go fourth in Serie A


Giacomo Raspadori of SSC Napoli celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the Serie A TIM match between US Salernitana and SSC Napoli at Stadio Arechi on November 4, 2023 in Salerno, Italy. 

Napoli went fourth in Serie A after a 2-0 win over Salernitana. Goals from Giacomo Raspadori and substitute Eljif Elmas ensured victory for the visitors, who are now unbeaten in four games across all competitions. 

They move within four points of league leaders Inter Milan, who can extend their lead with a result against Atalanta later on Saturday.

Giacomo Raspadori scored his third goal in three games as Napoli earned a hard-fought 2-0 win over Salernitana in Serie A.

After a lively opening from both sides, the reigning Scudetto champions took the lead when Slav Lobotka's through ball found Raspadori who lashed the ball into the top corner.

Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa then kept his side with a string of brilliant saves to deny Raspadori on two occasions and Matteo Politano.

Filipo Inzaghi's side created some decent openings of their own with Lorenzo Pirola forcing a good save with a header from a corner.

The second half was a similar story with Rudy Garcia's men dominating and they came agonisingly close to a second when Politano's shot from distance clipped the crossbar.

And Ochoa kept out Zielinski stinging shot from the edge of the area after a corner.

The home side made three late changes but Napoli sealed victory through substitute Eljif Elmas's curling effort into the bottom corner.

The win for Garcia's side sees them climb into the top four while Salernitana remain rock bottom.
