  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Napoli
    • Bari
    • 90+3 There's the finish! 2-2 and a thriller. Boos from the Napoli fans.
    • 90+3 Lavezzi chases one down the left but Masiello gets in front of him and draws a foul.
    • 90+2 Gargano will take it with his right foot... headed away but it lands to Sosa who knocks a brilliant ball over to the far post AND CAVANI UNMARKED BUT HE TRIES A VOLLEY AND SENDS IT OVER!
    • 90+1 Zuniga wins a free-kick off Belmonte on the left.
    • 90' Three-minutes added time...
    • 89' Parisi is booked for taking Lavezzi out.
    • 88' Cavani gets in and could be through but a defender hurls himself at the ball and it squeezes into the arms of Gillet.
    • 87' 2-2! MADNESS IN NAPLES! Castillo with the tap-in after Almiron got in behind the defence to cut it back to him. Great play by Almiron to start the move, falling over as he found Alvarez on the right, who held it up before cutting back into Almiron who somehow got up in time.
    • 86' GOAL NAPOLI! CANNAVARO! Fabio's kid brother smashes a low finish home after a brilliant piece of improvisation from Lavezzi - the low cross from Sosa I think was behind the diving Argentine but he stuck his boot backwards to lay it up for the local hero.
    • 85' Alvarez on the right has no options so has to go back to Almiron. Parisi shoots, spilled by De Sanctis and it drops to CASTILLO and deflected but somehow De Sanctis reads it and alters his bodyshape to claim! From the ridiculous to the sublime from the keeper!
    • 84' Bari have the ball back but seem to be tiring. They can't break at pace at all and Napoli are back to clear. Hamsik turns and plays a superb ball in but too much on it for Lavezzi. Gillet claims.
    • 83' The corner is not cleared and it drops to Campagnaro from 12 yards but he takes a touch and drives a weak shot into a group of players, Gillet scrambling it away!
    • 82' Napoli take a quick throw and Aronica finds Lavezzi who wins a corner.
    • 81' Bari with a spell on the ball now but Alvarez's control lets him down on the right.
    • 80' HEADED OVER BY LAVEZZI! Good ball in from Maggio that was over the head of Cavani and on to that of Lavezzi, less good in the air.
    • 79' Castillo is down hurt now...
    • 78' Dangerous corner flies across the box and drops for Ghezzal at the far post but he can't wrap his foot around the shot and it spins away for a goal kick!
    • 77' Kutuzov works with Alvarez but Campagnaro is back to put behind for a corner.
    • 76' Cavani seems to be pulled down as he attacks the corner near post but the ref doesn't see it! That looked like a pull but nothing given, goal kick.
    • 76' Sosa is on for Pazienzia. Napoli clearly think they can get the win!
    • 75' Belmonte puts it behind for a corner after a promising run by Zuniga down the left.
    • 74' A Napoli attack breaks down and Bari counter, Alvarez screaming down the right and lofting a super cross for Castillo far post but he can't get enough power on the header and it's easy for the keeper.
    • 72' Lavezzi takes it but sends a disappointing effort well over the bar.
    • 71' It takes an age for Bari to arrange the wall and Napoli to work out what to do with this, at a slight angle to the left...
    • 70' Almiron clips Lavezzi 25 yards out, free-kick just short of the D, very dangerous....
    • 69' NAPOLI SUB: Aronica on for Grava.
    • 68' BARI SUB: Belmonte on for Raggi.
    • 67' The corner is aimed for Cavani but he can't get clean contact and it's well wide.
    • 66' Napoli go close again as Lavezzi is denied at the far post by a block. Corner
    • 65' NAPOLI SUB: Zuniga on for Dossena. Going for the win!
    • 64' Almiron sees yellow for a late challenge.
    • 63' No big deal on the miss - Lavezzi was offside when Hamisk shot.
    • 62' WHAT A MISS! Lavezzi can't believe it! Hamsik drilled a shot low on goal that Gillet spilled and Lavezzi put it over from two yards! It bounced into his path but still.
    • 61' Dossena with a clumsy challenge on Alvarez. Free-kick Bari on the right.
    • 60' Lavezzi takes it and he sends it low near post and Cavani with a flick but just wide! Took a deflection, corner.
    • 59' Lavezzi races down the left but a superb slide tackle from Rossi. Corner.
    • 58' Shaky backpass for De Sanctis but Campagnaro helps him out.
    • 57' Gargano takes it but straight down Gillet's throat.
    • 56' Free-kick to Napoli after Lavezzi is brought down. Donati booked.
    • 55' Kutuzov is in a heap on the left but nothing given and he looks confused.
    • 53' Napoli on the right as Maggio crosses but Gillet claims easily.
    • 52' Alvarez shunted to the ground but the free-kick is wasted.
    • 51' Ball inside from Kutuzov, and a lovely step over from Castillo sends Almiron clean through and he must score but he tries to flick it over De Sanctis, gets it wrong and the keeper comes out holding on to the ball!
    • 50' Alvarez getting forward on the right, it opens up for him and he fires a shot but well over.
    • 49' Low cross into the box and Cavani attacks it but cleared.
    • 48' Great control by Cavani with the outside of his right but cleared. Long range shot from Kutuzov but straight at De Sanctis.
    • 47' Cagey start to the second half for both sides. Napoli keeping the ball well though....
    • 46' CORRECTION: Goalscorer Barreto has come off for Bari. Must have picked up a knock as he was excellent.
    • 46' The second half is underway.
    • - BARI SUB: Castillo is coming on at half time... I would guess for Kutuzov.
    • - STATS: Possesiion is pretty much even, although Napoli have had nine shots on goal to Bari's three.
    • 45+2 Half-time, 1-1 as the South American connection nets for both sides. Entertaining fare, if a touch emotional.
    • 45+1 Lavezzi does really well on the left to beat Alvarez and cut past Raggi before moving inside towards goal, but with plenty of options he chooses the worst and shoots well wide of the near post.
    • 45' More handbags as Campagnaro kicks off at Almiron. Calm down ladies.
    • 44' The corner is cleared but Cavani gets it on the right and puts over a super cross but Gillet flies out to meet Hamsik's knock down just as Cannavaro was set to pounce!
    • 43' The original free-kick doesn't work out but Hamsik gets it on the right and wins a corner. The defender won't let him take it quickly and Hamsik needs to be careful lest he get sent off. They're trying to wind him up...
    • 42' Napoli with some good pressure now as they win a free-kick 35 yards out.
    • 41' Hamsik digs the ball over for Cavani who has to change his trajectory to the right. He holds it up for a bit and crosses but cleared. Now Lavezzi tries to get on to a bouncing ball but it's back with Gillet.
    • 39' A long ball from Rossi almost sends Barreto in again but Cannavaro reads it, hooking the ball from behind him and cleaing. Andrea Masiello with a foul on Gargano.
    • 38' Gargano swings the free-kick far post looking for Cannavaro. Headed away. The second ball is met by Dossena who puts over a really good cross AND CAVANI RISES TO MEET IT BUT OVER!
    • 37' Maggio gets a rap on the calves by Rossi. Not nice. Free-kick on the right....
    • 36' Cavani and Lavezzi almost combine but the Uruguayan's ball is too heavy for the Argentine. De Sanctis claims.
    • 34' Alvarez on the right gets in the box and goes down but Dossena didn't touch him and to be fair he doesn't ask for anything.
    • 33' After all that drama the free-kick yields little more than a defensive header.
    • 32' Hamsik is being spoken to by the ref... he is booked for his role in that. It seems that is all. No, Alvarez also booked. The replay shows Dossena sliding late into Alvarez, for which Bari have a free-kick. Then Hamisk went in over the top with a stamp and should have been sent off. Alvarez reacted with a hand to the face of Dossena and is also a lucky boy.
    • 31' FIGHT! It kicks off just inside the Napoli half. No idea what's going on, loads of moody latin types touching each other's hair.
    • 30' CAVANI LEVELS! Dossena crossed from left to right and Hamsik controlled on the edge of the box before sliding a delightful short pass with the outside of his left boot that Cavani just drilled into the bottom left.
    • 28' BARRETO HITS THE WOODWORK! Another straight ball sends him through and, from the edge of the box, he smacks a wicked half-volley across De Sanctis and off the inside of the left-hand post.
    • 27' De Santics with big save from Barreto's low drive after a sick counter sent the Brazilian through! Should have done better with the finish!
    • 26' Alvarez almost gets in down the right but it's hoofed away. Now Hamsik with an up-and-under that Lavezzi chases but Gillet races out to clear.
    • 24' Bari counter after the corner but the move breaks down.
    • 23' Moggia's corner comes to nothing. Napoli pressing desperately for a leveller.
    • 22' Lavezzi again gets in between the channels but can only win a corner with his cross.
    • 21' Throw to Bari deep on the left but an offside.
    • 20' Dossena is caught out of position but Barreto's cross is intercepted by Cannavaro.
    • 19' Short corner played to Lavezzi, but he powers a rising drive half a yard wide of the near post with Gillet covering.
    • 18' Dossena puts a hanging cross far post for Maggio to attack but Ghezzal is back defending and nods behind for a corner.
    • 17' Cavani heads just wide! The Uruguay striker leaps like a salmon to power a header down past the keeper but also bouncing past the right-hand post!
    • 15' Crunching tackle on Barreto but he gets up from it scot free.
    • 14' BARI SUB: Rossi is on for Salvatore Masiello.
    • 13' One of the Masiello brothers is down holding his ankle...
    • 12' GOAL BARI! Brilliant corner, curled in really fast and flat just inside the near post where Barreto flow in like a ninja to volley home on the line.
    • 11' Di Sanctis has to arch his body all the way to tip a corner over as it was swinging in.
    • 10' A rare attack for Bari as Ghezzal has a pop from range but well over.
    • 9' A long ball bounces awkwardly for the Bari defence and almost plays Cavani in but the bounce takes it over his head and into Gillet's arms.
    • 8' Dossena on the ball now but he runs it out, winning a throw on the left wing.
    • 7' Lavezzi gets in down the left and fires on target but parried by Gillet at the near post!
    • 6' Great crossfield pass lands at the feet of Maggio in the box but he treads on the ball and falls over! Comedy! That was a clear-cut chance!
    • 5' Donati with a good defensive header back to Gillet after Cavani got a flick on it.
    • 4' Barreto almost gets a killer touch that would take him past Cannavaro but Grava sweeps up and it's back with De Sanctis.
    • 3' Campagnaro gets forward and floats a dangerous ball in but over the head of Lavezzi and claimed by Gillet.
    • 2' Kutuzov almost gets in behind the Napoli defence as the home fans are silenced. Cannavaro gets across though.
    • 1' Bari, from Italy's north, are booed relentlessly by the fans down south. Hissssssssssss.
    • 1' The first half gets underway in Naples.
