The Azzurri failed to keep up their march at the top after being held by an organised Viola outfit. Goal.com rates the participants on display.

    Morgan De Sanctis

    Rarely called into question but proved alert when needed.

  • Gianluca Grava

    3.00

    Gianluca Grava

    Started the game brightly but was forced off after just 25 minutes with a nasty blow to the knee. Could be out for some while with suspect damage to his cruciate ligament.

  • Paolo Cannavaro

    3.50

    Paolo Cannavaro Top of the Match

    Another captain's performance at the back. Will have left the field a little disappointed after having failed to stick away an opener just yards from goal shortly before the break.

  • Hugo Campagnaro
    4

    3.00

    Hugo Campagnaro

    Rarely set a foot wrong alongside Cannavaro and can be satisfied with another clean sheet.

  • Christian Maggio
    5
    4
    2.50

    Christian Maggio

    A constant motor down the right providing numerous crosses into the path of Edinson Cavani.

  • Walter Gargano
    2
    6
    3.00

    Walter Gargano

    Less influential than usual and like a number of teammates was clearly suffering some fatigue in the wake of the resounding defeat over Juventus.

  • Michele Pazienza

    2.50

    Michele Pazienza

    Provided substance but not enough spark for the disappointing Azzurri.

  • Andrea Dossena

    2.50

    Andrea Dossena

    Looked to get forward down the flanks but lacked his usual pace.

  • Ezequiel Lavezzi
    2
    9
    2.50

    Ezequiel Lavezzi

    A less than inspiring performance from the Argentine who was a little under-tone. Failed to find the space between the lines from which he usually does so much damage.

  • Edinson Cavani
    5
    13
    2.50

    Edinson Cavani

    A constant threat inside the box but had less joy this evening without the service of Marek Hamsik.

  • José Sosa
    7
    9
    2.50

    José Sosa Flop of the Match

    The former Bayern Munich man did his best to replace the suspended Hamsik. Provided extra muscle in the forward line but was unable to provide the same spark as the mercurial Slovakian.

Substitutions

  • Salvatore Aronica
    3
    2
    2.50

    Salvatore Aronica

    Forced into the action early on as Gianluca Grava left the field on a stretcher. Lucky to escape scot free early into the second half after bringing down Ljajic with an outstretched arm.

  • Hassan Yebda
    4
    0
    3.00

    Hassan Yebda

    Thrown on with 30 minutes to play following the disappointing showing of Jose Sosa.

  • Nicolao Dumitru
    2
    4
    0.00

    Nicolao Dumitru

    Given a late run out as the coach looked for some added numbers in attack.

  • Artur Boruc
    32
    2
    3.00

    Artur Boruc

    Rarely called into action between the sticks as his backline proved organised for the duration of the encounter.

  • Lorenzo De Silvestri
    26
    3
    3.00

    Lorenzo De Silvestri

    Unable to get forward as much as he would have like but put in a controlled display at the back.

  • Alessandro Gamberini
    18
    3
    3.00

    Alessandro Gamberini

    Offered little space to the Napoli forwards with a commanding display at the back.

  • Per Billeskov Kroldrup
    15
    3
    3.50

    Per Billeskov Kroldrup

    Alongside Gamberini he proved a rock at the back for the Viola. Will be delighted to return home with a clean sheet from the San Paolo.

  • Manuel Pasqual
    8
    5
    3.00

    Manuel Pasqual

    Gave away little down the flank and kept the usually influential Lavezzi quiet for long spells.

  • Gaetano D'Agostino
    15
    3
    3.00

    Gaetano D'Agostino

    A positive evening for the former Udinese man. He kept the Viola organised down the middle and supplied some threatening balls to Gilardino during the opening period.

  • Mario Santana
    15
    3
    3.00

    Mario Santana

    A bright spark down the right and broke into the box on numerous occasions.

  • Adem Ljajic
    24

    2.50

    Adem Ljajic

    Unable to get forward as much as he would have liked but put in a controlled display at the back.

  • Marco Donadel
    19

    3.00

    Marco Donadel

    Fiorentina's star performer down the middle providing energy and creativity between the lines.

  • Alberto Gilardino
    10

    2.50

    Alberto Gilardino

    Disappointing performance from the Italian hitman who failed to take the few chances that came his way.

  • Riccardo Montolivo
    15
    6
    3.00

    Riccardo Montolivo

    Provided the spark for the Viola for little over an hour. Forced off due to fatigue as the home side started to pick up the tempo.

Substitutions

  • Marco Marchionni
    13
    2
    2.50

    Marco Marchionni

    Thrown on for Riccardo Montolivo during the second period and provided oxygen to the midfield line as the home side picked up the tempo.

    Mario Bolatti

    Given six minutes late on to ease the young Ljajic of his duties up top.
