ANTALYA – Giacomo Raspadori was in sparkling form as Napoli beat Antalyaspor 3-2 in their first friendly of the Winter Football Series in Turkey.

The Italy man applied two fine finishes – the first 10 minutes in and the second after an hour's play – either side of Matteo Politano's effort, with Napoli seemingly having lost none of their fluidity during the winter break.

Luciano Spalletti put the academy kids on in the second half and Antalyaspor scored a late goal to make it seem closer than it was but overall it was a decent first runout for the Azzurri.

The Winter Football Series training camp will continue this week and finish with a second friendly against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
