As reported on ESPN Deportes on Sunday, Napoli, at home, tied with 18th placed Livorno 1-1. According to all the stats on ESPN Deportes, Napoli dominated the game but could not take the victory.

Additionally, Napoli had to play without their leading scorer Argentine Gonzalo Higuain due to accumulation of yellow cards.

The goal for SSC Napoli was scored by Belgian midfielder Dries Mertens in the 32nd minute via penalty. Livorno’s goal was an own goal by Napoli’s Spaniard goalkeeper Pepe Reina in the 39th minute.

Apparently, the goal for Livorno was counted as an own goal by Reina; however, the shot was taken by Senegalese Ibrahima Mbaye from the center of the box after a center pass.

The tie was a bit devastating for SSC Napoli as they were heavily favored over an AS Livorno who has been struggling all season and in danger of being relegated to Serie B.
