Fiorentina blew away Napoli’s chances of winning a Serie A title for the first time since 1990 with a 3-nil emphatic win on Sunday.
Napoli had cut down Juventus lead to the Scudetto to one point last week and were hoping to overtake the Old Ladies but ended up on the whipping side losing 3-0 to their hosts
A hat-trick by Atletico Madrid coach’s son, Giovanni Simeone, secured the points for Fiorentina who are in mid table to dent Napoli hope.
Napoli played for 84 minutes with 10 men after defender Kalidou Koulibaly was sent off for kicking Simeone.
The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decision handed Napoli defender, Koulibaly who scored the late winner last week against Juventus a red card for preventing a goal bound ball.
Defending champions, Juve are four point clear now with three games to end the season.
This season’s Serie A campaign has been one of the most exciting title chases in Europe’s major leagues.
