Naples - Napoli have extended its perfect start in Serie A to the Champions League with a 2-1 win Wednesday over 10-man Borussia Dortmund, last season's runner-up.
Prized signing Gonzalo Higuain put Napoli ahead 29 minutes in on a rainy night at San Paolo stadium by heading home a cross from Camilo Zuniga, after which Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp was sent off for protesting.
Higuain was also at the center of the action in the Group F match when goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller was shown a red card for using his hands outside his area to deny the striker in first-half added time.
Lorenzo Insigne doubled Napoli's lead in the 67th with a free kick to the top corner.
Zuniga scored an own goal for Dortmund in the 87th with a poorly intercepted cross.
