Napoli beat Fiorentina 3-1 to win their fifth Italian Cup Saturday in a match that kicked off 45 minutes late after three fans were shot – one critically – in an incident near Rome's Olympic Stadium.Insigne's goals in the 11th and 17th minutes put Fiorentina on the back foot but Juan Vargas brought his side back into the game just before the half hour with a fantastic volley. Mertens then added Napoli's third in injury time.Fiorentina took the game to their rivals in the second half, with Giuseppe Rossi making a first appearance since Jan. 5 as a 69th-minute substitute, but Napoli held on despite Gokhan Inler's 79th-minute sending off.Despite the ugly atmosphere, it was a beautiful goal that opened the scoring, with Hamsik bursting away on the break before slipping the ball to Insigne, who curled in his sixth goal of the season off the post.Some also spilled on to the pitch to celebrate and taunt the Fiorentina supporters.
