However, an own goal from Sikou Niakate gave Napoli the 2 - 1 win over Braga and the three points.
The trip to Bologna ended in a goalless draw despite Napoli registering eight more shots than Bologna but the next game against Udinese was much more successful. Piotr Zielinski converted his penalty and was joined by Victor Osimhen, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Giovanni Simeone as Napoli won 4 - 1.
