Manolo Gabbiadini scores thanks to gorgeous Marek Hamsik pass

Gabbiadini has finally scored, and it was all set up by the captain being his normal stunning self.

Napoli have an early lead over Chievo Verona thanks to an unexpected-but-hoped-for source: Manolo Gabbiadini, who finished off a gorgeous team move with ease.

The finish was nice, and while the assist went to Jose Callejon that goal is all about Marek Hamsik. That lob to get Callejon free behind the defense was drool-worthy, and more importantly it was placed in such a way that the pass pulled a defender out of position to free Gabbiadini up for the finish. It was absolutely gorgeous from Hamsik from concept to execution, and to see Napoli score off it was welcome.

We’ve already seen several such chances created in this match, from Hamsik and Piotr Zielinski and even Faouzi Ghoulam. If this keeps up, we could get even more.
