Other than Hamsik's header that flew past him, the Portuguese 'keeper wasn't tested. Almost gifted Cavani a goal in the second half.
A solid showing from the 22-year-old. Made a couple of good blocks in the early going but really should have hit the target in the 48th minute. Kept Cavani off the scoresheet which is no small chore these days.
The former Fiorentina defender looked nervous early on in his own penalty area but proved to be a nuisance in the air from set pieces in Napoli’s box.
An encouraging start but didn't look the same after clashing heads with Maggio early in the second half.
Not a vintage performance by the Brazilian right-back by any means. Wasn't able to keep Hamsik under wraps and did not offer an attacking outlet either.
The 35-year-old conceded the free kick which led to Napoli’s goal and let his emotions get the best of him as he spent too much time haranguing the referee.
A mixed bag from the midfielder. Sent in some decent crosses but spurned two excellent chances. Had a running conversation with the referee, which did his team no good.
Ineffective for the most part. Went missing for large chunks of the game and taken off with 20 minutes left to play.
A sub-par display by the Portuguese midfielder. Was burned by Hamsik for the first goal of the game and was booked for a tackle on Zuniga. It was no surprise that he did not come out for the start of the second half.
A poor showing. Struggled mightily to impose himself on the game and was hooked at the interval.
Battled hard all game but to no avail. His great cushioned header set up Rossi in the first half. Lucky not to have been booked for a flop in the area in the 54th minute and missed an excellent chance from close range later in the second half.
M. De Sanctis
Showed good, safe hands when called upon. Did not have to make any difficult stops as Genoa weren't able to hit the net.
Nothing flashy from the ex-Liverpool man but no glaring mistakes either. A decent outing.
The Argentine defender did not put a foot wrong tonight. Shut down Palladino and Veloso and will be pleased with the clean sheet.
The ex-Reggina man commanded the backline with confidence and rarely lost sight of Toni.
The captain had a running battle with Luca Toni this evening and was tough in the tackle and good in the air. His booking in the second half will see him miss Napoli's next match, though.
The Colombian looked lively in the early going and wasted no time in testing Eduardo with a long-range effort. He wasn't afraid to run at the Genoa defense and his first touch was excellent this evening. Substituted just after the hour mark with a booking to his name.
Battled valiantly in the midfield trenches and set up Hamsik’s goal with a splendid free kick delivery.
The ‘Pazmanian Devil’ was a little reckless near the end of the game and paid for it by picking up his second yellow card and putting his team in a tough situation.
A solid showing by the Italy international. Had a couple of close calls with handballs in his own penalty area.
An excellent display by the Slovakia international. Lost his marker and powered a bullet-header that wound up being the game winner.
Has terrorized his fair share of backlines this season but was relatively quiet by his usual lofty standards. Still, held up the ball well and his passing was spot on.
- 73 A. Scarpi
- 24 E. Moretti
- 2 Chico Flores
Missed a good opportunity on the hour mark.
- 71 B. Janković
The youngster wasn't able to flick the ball past De Sanctis in the late going.
Was Genoa's most dangerous player. Added some much needed spark to the attack when he came on at the start of the second half.
