SSC Napoli finished runners up in Serie A, albeit by a considerable margin of nine points to winners Juventus. But they were the team which scored the maximum number of goals in Serie A last season, and were incredibly entertaining to watch, making them the neutral’s favourites. They owe that honour predominantly to one Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan has been an integral part of the Napoli squad ever since his arrival from Palermo in 2010 for £20 million. He has regularly got onto the scoresheet, owing to his incredible shot accuracy, ball control and excellent presence of mind in the opposition box. In addition to all of these, his aerial ability is more than decent. He has 38 goals in just 43 matches for Napoli this season, 29 of which have come in the league (notably almost half of his team’s goals). This proves without a doubt that he is an integral part of the team, who simply wouldn’t know what to do in his absence.
