Napoli is the series A champion, winning Coppa Italia for the sixth time. They won the Italian Cup back in 2014. In 2014, they beat Fiorentina in the finals. But the success fell out shortly and for the past few years, they were down with bad performances and frustrations within the teammates. They had a rough time dealing with intense disappointment and revamping the former glory in the world of sports.
In the past couple of seasons, Napoli was so fragile a team that they would lose the match against the Turin team, Juventus even when they started off the matches leading the scoreboard.

Winning the Cup was very important for Gattuso. He lost his sister a while ago who suffered from morbidity and passed away after getting treated several days in the hospital. It was a painful experience that impacted him in every way but the final match was a big win for him and the team to look up to something cheerful for a while.
But it was not easy to swallow the defeat of Ronaldo and the boys because Juventus grew tremendous supports over the years. They used to be the face of Italian champions and the fans were sitting quite confidently before the match started.
Maurizio Sarri messed up in the game that he should improve. If he does not watch out for the loopholes, the might suffer a big loss in the Serie A trophy. If they cannot get their form back, it will be very upsetting for the Old Lady fans.
