Napoli hit Ajax for six to stay top of Group A

Napoli hit Ajax for six to stay top of Group A

Giacomo Raspadori scored a brace on his Champions League debut to help Napoli come from behind to thrash 10-man Ajax 6-1 at the Johan Cruijff ArenA this evening.

The 22-year-old summer signing from Sassuolo cancelled out Mohammed Kudus‘s opener, before Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Piotr Zielinski, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Giovanni Simeone all got their names on the scoresheet as Luciano Spalletti‘s side continued their 100% start to the competition.

Napoli travelled to Amsterdam in fine form, winning each of their last six matches across all tournaments, but few would have expected them to demolish the perennial Eredivisie champions on their own turf.

The result has seen Ajax concede at least five goals on home soil for the first time in European competition, as well as lose their second Group A game in three matches after suffering a 2-1 loss at Liverpool last time out.

As for Napoli, they have maintained their perfect start in Group A and remain at the summit at the halfway stage, three points clear of second-placed Liverpool, who secured a 2-0 win over Rangers at Anfield this evening.
