Napoli fired four past struggling Cremonese on Sunday evening, coming away with three important points to sit on top of the table. Having taken the lead in the first half through Matteo Politano’s penalty conversion, the Azzurri looked comfortable going in at half-time. However, Cremonese came out firing and scored within two minutes of the restart. It was the home side’s best period of the game, but it was Cholito again who came through with the goods and got that all-important goal off the bench to restore Napoli’s lead. Giovanni Simeone did it against Milan and he did it again today in Cremona. The match ended with a flourish too, as Hirving Lozano and Mathias Olivera both bagged goals in the dying seconds of stoppage time. Napoli’s flying start to the season continues...
