Napoli survived a second-half fightback from Brescia to move into fourth place in Serie A with a 2-1 home win on Sunday, September 29 as Mario Balotelli opened his account for the visitors.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side held a two-goal lead at half-time thanks to strikes from Dries Mertens and Kostas Manolas, but Balotelli pulled one back as Brescia rallied after the break.
