While Cristiano Ronaldo is still figuring out how to score past Italian league defenders, Napoli is picking up right where it left off from last season.Only two rounds of Serie A are completed but Napoli is again shaping up as Juventus' top challenger.Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina was partly responsible for both of Milan's goals, meaning Ancelotti may promote Orestis Karnezis for next weekend's match at Sampdoria.Napoli signed goalkeeper Alex Meret from Udinese in July for a reported fee of 25 million euros (now $29 million) to replace the departed Pepe Reina but Meret remains out with an injured arm.Reina and midfielder Jorginho -- who followed Sarri to Chelsea -- were the only significant departures for Napoli during the offseason, keeping together a unit that produced consistently spectacular football last season.While much has been made of Ronaldo's inability to score in Juventus' opening two matches, it's worth remembering that he also didn't score in Real Madrid's opening three Spanish league matches last season -- even though he did score in other competitions for Madrid during that spell.
