Match of the Week Europa League: Financial head-to-head AZ Alkmaar v Napoli
2 December 2020
Comparing the financials of these two clubs reveal AZ Alkmaar's away win over Napoli in the opposite fixture was perhaps an even greater upset beneath the surface.
Napoli's turnover at €216.6 million in 2018/19 stood at about eight times that of AZ Alkmaar's €26.8 million last season.
While AZ Alkmaar spent €19.5 million in wages, Napoli spent more than six times that with player salaries of €135.1 million.
