Results by round[edit]

Matches[edit]

Coppa Italia[edit]

Napoli qualified into the Round of 16 in the 2010–11 Coppa Italia by finishing sixth in the previous year's table, marking the first time since 1994–95 Napoli have entered the tournament at that stage. Napoli aim for its fourth victory in the national competition, and first since its 1986–87 finals win against Atalanta.[27]

UEFA Europa League[edit]

Napoli qualified to the play-off round of the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League by finishing 6th in Serie A in 2009–10. This marks Napoli's first appearance in the competition since the 1994–95 UEFA Cup, under its previous name, and 13th overall. Napoli aim to add to its only triumph in the competition: its 1988–89 UEFA Cup victory over VfB Stuttgart.

Play-off round[edit]

Napoli were drawn against Swedish side IF Elfsborg of the Allsvenskan, who advanced through defeats of FC Iskra-Stal and FK Teteks in the previous qualifying rounds. Hosting the first leg at the Stadio San Paolo, Napoli survived on a clear-path goal by Ezequiel Lavezzi in first half stoppage time, taking a 1-0 lead to Sweden.

Edinson Cavani, kept off the scoresheet in his debut with Napoli, hoped for better fortunes in the return leg of the matchup. Indeed, he scored his first two goals as a member of the club to help go up 3–0 on aggregate through halftime in Sweden. Napoli would go on to win by that score, and advance to the group stage.
