The Italian champion confirms his difficult start to the season by conceding a parity score on the field of Genoa (2-2).
Naples, reigning Italian champion, only brought back one point from its trip to promoted Genoa (2-2), Saturday during the 4th day of Serie A. The team coached by Rudi Garcia was led 2 to 0 after goals from Mattia Bani (42nd) and Mateo Retegui (56th). Giacomo Raspadori reduced the score in the 76th minute and Naples besieged Genoa’s goal to equalize thanks to Matteo Politano (84th).
Naples is 4th with seven points and is five points behind the leader, Inter, who crushed AC Milan 5 to 1 earlier in the day. Before the international break, Napoli lost 2 to 1 at home against Lazio. Last season, the team then coached by Luciano Spalletti had never had a series of defeats then a draw or a draw then a defeat in the league.
