New, comment

Napoli scored right at the start of the second half thanks to this gem from Lorenzo Insigne.

Napoli needed a spark in a bad way after getting stifled by Fiorentina's midfield press all throughout the first half. That spark came almost immediately after the second half whistle sounded, and who else could it come from but Lorenzo Insigne.

Just look at that. Look at it. The field-splitting pass from Hamsik, intelligence of Inisigne's run, and that gorgeous first-time, curling finish to give Napoli the lead. Beautiful.

Damn, but that kid is good.
