Napoli beat Girona courtesy of four penalty conversions (one in normal time and three in a shootout) following a 1-1 draw in their second international friendly at the Stadio Patini.

Giovanni Simeone tucked away the first spot-kick shortly before half time, after Cristhian Stuani had opened the scoring for the Spaniards

Rudi Garcia swapped out most of the team on the hour mark but there were to be no further goals despite several chances for the Azzurri.

Giacomo Raspadori, Frank Anguissa and Piotr Zielinski made no mistake from 12 yards and Alex Meret was the shootout hero as he kept out two of Girona's three penalties on target.
