Napoli-2105-Verona-epa

It was absolute heartbreak for Napoli, who threw away Champions League qualification by failing to beat Hellas Verona.

The Partenopei knew a win would guarantee the top four spot, but the pressure really got to Gennaro Gattuso’s men.

Even when Amir Rrahmani eventually turned in on the rebound from a corner, refusing to celebrate against his former club, it still wasn’t enough.
