Napoli draws 1-1 at Fiorentina in Serie A

Napoli missed the chance to close the gap on Serie A leader Juventus as it drew 1-1 at Fiorentina on Sunday.
Fiorentina took the lead following a terrible blunder from Morgan De Sanctis. The Napoli goalkeeper rushed out of his area to intercept a long pass from Facundo Roncaglia by the halfway line, but completely misjudged the ball which bounced over him and into the goal.
Napoli was level three minutes from halftime as Edinson Cavani headed in Marek Hamsik's free kick for his 100th Serie A goal.
Alberto Aquilani could have won it for Fiorentina in stoppage time but blasted a good chance over the bar.
Napoli, which had a two-point penalty for match-fixing rescinded on Thursday, is level on points with second-placed Lazio, five points behind defending champion Juventus.
Fiorentina remains fifth.
