M. De Sanctis
Rarely called into question but proved alert when needed.
Rarely set a foot wrong alongside Cannavaro and can be satisfied with another clean sheet.
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.
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.
Looked to get forward down the flanks but lacked his usual pace.
A constant motor down the right providing numerous crosses into the path of Edinson Cavani.
Provided substance but not enough spark for the disappointing Azzurri.
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.
Less influential than usual and like a number of teammates was clearly suffering some fatigue in the wake of the resounding defeat over Juventus.
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.
A constant threat inside the box but had less joy this evening without the service of Marek Hamsik.
Rarely called into action between the sticks as his backline proved organised for the duration of the encounter.
L. De Silvestri
Unable to get forward as much as he would have like but put in a controlled display at the back.
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.
Gave away little down the flank and kept the usually influential Lavezzi quiet for long spells.
Offered little space to the Napoli forwards with a commanding display at the back.
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.
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.
Fiorentina's star performer down the middle providing energy and creativity between the lines.
A bright spark down the right and broke into the box on numerous occasions.
Unable to get forward as much as he would have liked but put in a controlled display at the back.
Disappointing performance from the Italian hitman who failed to take the few chances that came his way.
- 1 G. Iezzo
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.
- 25 Emilson Cribari
- 3 L. Vitale
- 18 C. Zúñiga
Thrown on with 30 minutes to play following the disappointing showing of Jose Sosa.
Given a late run out as the coach looked for some added numbers in attack.
- 33 A. Seculin
- 25 G. Comotto
- 31 M. Camporese
Given six minutes late on to ease the young Ljajic of his duties up top.
Thrown on for Riccardo Montolivo during the second period and provided oxygen to the midfield line as the home side picked up the tempo.
- 15 C. Zanetti
Replaced the disappointing Gilardino and proved a handful in the closing minutes.
