Napoli 1 Palermo 2, December 1951. Vintage footage of the Rosanero’s only victory in Naples in Serie A in 18 attempts. The salt thrown on the pitch clearly did the trick.
It was the 11th round of games of the season and the victory, courtesy of goals from Helge Bronee and Gino Giaroli (Paolo Todeschini scored for Napoli) put the Sicilian side into third place in the league. That would pretty much be high watermark of the season as they ended up in 11th spot sandwiched between Atalanta and Pro Patria.
Napoli, for their part, would end up five spots higher in 6th position with a great deal of thanks due to 25 goals combined from Mario Astorri and Amedeo Amedei.
