Sarri‘s first game against Napoli came in the 2005/06 season when his Pescara side lost 2-0 in the Coppa Italia first round. Two years later the Lazio coach faced Napoli again, with his Arezzo side securing a 2-2 draw in a Serie B clash.

Seven years went by before the Italian coach battled against the Campania side again. In the 2014/15 season, his Empoli side picked up a 2-2 draw away before winning 4-2 at home, his first ever victory against Napoli.
