Cholito lit up the Stadio Maradona again on Wednesday night as Napoli enjoyed more Champions League success this season. The Azzurri emerged 3-0 winners against Rangers, taking their tally to five wins in five in the group stage of the competition. Luciano Spalletti’s men appeared in control from the outset against the Scottish team and it didn’t take long for them to capitalise on the early pressure, with Giovanni Simeone slotting home just after the ten-minute mark. He found the net again only five minutes later, this time with his head, adding to his growing list of big goals for the Azzurri. Napoli looked comfortable throughout and Norwegian defender Leo Ostigard also got on the scoreboard with ten minutes to go, rounding off an impressive display from the team. Next Tuesday, they have their final group game, where they travel to Anfield to face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side.
