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 Balotelli opened his account for the visitors.

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

The result leaves Napoli in fourth place on 12 points, six behind leaders Inter Milan, while Brescia is down in 14th on six points.

Mertens’ powerful finish put the hosts ahead early on before Manolas, who had an earlier goal disallowed for handball, doubled their advantage with a glancing header in first-half stoppage time.

Brescia’s 19-year-old midfielder Sandro Tonali looked to have pulled one back in style with a long-range screamer before it was chalked off for a foul in the build-up following a Video Assistant Referee review.
