Napoli starting to lose track in their chase for Scudetto title after suffering a shock home defeat over Parma this Saturday at San Paoo stadium. Playing in front of their home crowd, the Partenopei were pushing hard in search for goals since kick off, but were facing strong resilience from their opponent.
Parma themselves were not all defensive as they also created several dangerous goal scoring opportunities since the first 45 minutes. After a goalless first 45 minutes, Napoli though they got in front when Gonzalo Higuain's header found the back of Antonio Mirante's net, but it was correctly ruled out for offside. Instead of scoring, the home side found themselves trailing when Antonio Cassano scored with a lovely shot nine minutes from time.
