Gooaaaaaaaaal! In any language, it means fantastic soccer action, and fans of Italy’s best are pumped. Fiorentina will host Napoli on Feb. 29 for an exciting Serie A match. HollywoodLife.com wants you catch every single moment so click to watch!
What a great day for some soccer! Fiorentina have made some serious advancement in Italy’s Serie A league, thanks to an unexpected hot streak. But, will the equally impressive Napoli squash Fiorentina’s soccer hopes with a devastating defeat?
The Napoli Little Donkeys (yes, that’s the team’s name, though they’re also known as The Blues) will travel up to Florence and face Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Fanchi on Feb. 29. It should be an epic showdown between these Serie A squads. The action kicks off at 3:00 P.M. EST so be sure you have some good food on hand when you watch every thrilling second.
Fiorentina, also known as Viola or The Lilies, are currently on a two-game winning run and a six-game unbeaten streak, according to Yibada.com. This puts them in fourth place, just a point behind Roma and six points behind Juventus. Fiorentina needs a victory badly, so be sure to show your pride for Viola with an official jersey.
Napoli, who are five points ahead of Fiorentina, are feeling the pressure. A loss could send them stumbling down, and they’re relying on their star player, Gonzalo Higuain, to knock the ball deep into the net. Gonzalo has scored 24 goals so far this season, according to the International Business Times, and they need him to rack up the points in the crucial game.
Napoli suffered a painful loss against Juventus, before fighting to a stalemate with Milan, according to the Hard Tackle. Making things even worse, Villarreal kicked them out of the Europa League, so they might need the victory even more than Viola. If you’re pulling for Napoli to pull out of their funk, pick up an official jersey here.
However, Fiorentina didn’t fare any better in the Europa League, as SB Nation reports they got “punched in the teeth over and over and over” by Tottenham. Uh, ouch! Plus, with Viola’s Mauro Zarate serving a suspension, could Napoli capitalize and score the win?
