Napoli open Serie A campaign with simple win

Napoli coasted to a 3-1 opening-weekend win at Hellas Verona, hitting their Serie A stride with precious little fuss or trouble on the road.

The hosts were in trouble just after the half-hour, when Samuel Souprayen put through his own net to gift Napoli early control.

Napoli quickly doubled their lead thanks to a rapid counter-attack. Lorenzo insigne played in Arkaduisz Milik and the Poland striker fired home to cap a flowing break.

Faouzi Ghoulam blasted home the third just past the hour to kill the contest.

Verona managed to scramble a consolation however, after Elseid Hysaj upended Alex Ferrari for a penalty.

Hysaj was sent off and Pazzini converted the spot-kick, but in reality all Verona's late goal did was gloss the scoreline.
