The one entertaining factor was that three red cards were given. Coaches Walter Mazzarri and Raffaele Palladino saw red in the technical areas, and unused substitute Mirko Maric received his marching orders for arguing from the bench as the game came to an end.
The key highlight of the game will undoubtedly be Monza’s penalty. Andrea Colpani’s close-range attempt struck Juan Jesus’ arm, and the referee pointed straight to the spot. However, Matteo Pessina missed from 12 yards.
Napoli could find themselves as low as eighth by the end of the weekend after their poor run of form, whilst Monza are on the cusp of the top half.
