Mazzarri: Napoli could have scored five

Walter Mazzarri feels Napoli's 1-0 win over Palermo last night is misleading because his side could have scored as many as five goals.

As it turned out, Napoli had to wait until the 95th minute to find a winner through Christian Maggio, whose goal allowed his side to keep pace with third placed Juventus in Serie A.

"It would have been a shame not to win," Mazzarri told Sky Italia. "We played really well. We could have scored five goals.

"We didn't give anything away. If we had scored one or two goals in the first half, we would have run away with it.

"From a playing point of view it's difficult to find as good a game as that against Palermo. It's difficult to find a weakness."
