The Super Eagles stars sought to fly for their sides on the night, but their oppositions clipped their wings
Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen failed to score for Napoli for the first time this season in their goalless draw at Fiorentina.
Napoli looked to continue their flawless start to the season when they traveled to the Stadio Artemi Franchi to take on Fiorentina.
However, the Partenopeans were a shadow of themselves, as Fiorentina put themselves about disrupting the rhythm of their opponents.
Osimhen was his usual active self on the night, pushing the Fiorentina defenders, trying to force mistakes from them.
However, Kvaratskheli, Lozano, and other Napoli stars were not at their best, as there were a lot of misplaced passes in the final third.
Osimhen thought he had put Napoli ahead in the 43rd minute, but the goal was ruled out because he was slightly offside.
The masked Super Eagles marksman was taken off in the 78th minute for Giovanni Simeone, but it did not alter the status quo, as it ended 0-0 after 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, it was another draw at the Stadio Via del Mare, as newly-promoted Lecce forced Empoli to a 1-1 result.
Empoli took the lead through Fabiano Parisi in the 23rd minute, but Gabriel Strefezza equalized for Lecce in the 40th minute.
Super Eagles fullback Tyrone Ebuehi started from the bench, and he was introduced into the game in the 65th minute.
Ebuehi was decent for Empoli, recording two clearances, and 21 touches. However, he was unable to help his side alter the scoreline in their favor.
The result leaves Empoli in 14th position, with just two points after three games.
