Carlo Ancelotti warned Napoli “it’s unacceptable to have 18 scoring opportunities over two games and not score any of them.”

Once again, the Partenopei wasted several chances, failed to turn their domination into goals and hit the woodwork for the 18th time in Serie A this season.

The 0-0 with Torino was their fourth Serie A clean sheet in a row, but means Juventus extend their lead at the top of the table to 13 points.

Carlo Ancelotti warned Napoli “it’s unacceptable to have 18 scoring opportunities over two games and not score any of them.”

Once again, the Partenopei wasted several chances, failed to turn their domination into goals and hit the woodwork for the 18th time in Serie A this season.

The 0-0 with Torino was their fourth Serie A clean sheet in a row, but means Juventus extend their lead at the top of the table to 13 points.

“We lacked a goal, just as we did against Fiorentina. We played with focus, motivation, determination, but it’s unacceptable to have 18 scoring opportunities over two games and not score any of them,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“Evidently, we need to work in training on the finishing, crosses, movements, decision-making. I defy anyone to say this team doesn’t play good football, but we are not turning the chances into goals.

“We all care about doing better and we do practice, but clearly we need to look deep down at the details, because with my modest experience, I can tell this is a team that plays good football.

“It’s disappointing, because if you play badly, then you can handle a draw. If we play well and don’t win, we have nobody to blame but ourselves.”

Now that Napoli are 13 points adrift of the leaders and seven clear of Inter in third, do they risk coasting?

“We’re in a very strong position, the team proves with its performances that the team is very determined, concentrated and has a precise identity. You might not think that just looking at the results, but it’s true.

“It is our own fault and the devil is in the detail, we need a more precise cross, more accurate finish, better run. It’s not just the strikers, as the crosses and final ball also need work. We all need to work on it, there’s no point focusing only on the forwards.”
