The second time is never forgotten. And therefore on the second useful opportunity to jump to the top of the standings, Napoli is not wrong. Of course, what an effort. It takes Insigne’s return to scoring from an action and a feat of the worst Fabian Ruiz of the season: but in the end it is the result that counts and the result smiles for the Azzurri. The team plays as a team and in the second half grows visibly. Then there is the captain who at the moment of difficulty loads everyone on his shoulders: he scores and serves the winning assist.
The match live
Precious are the closures of Rrahmani and Koulibaly that keep problems away from Ospina’s door. Then the recovery of Lobotka in the middle of the field it could be decisive in view of the next commitments. Also waiting for the return of Anguissa.
Napoli leaders are also in the sign of Elmas, who enters the second half in place of an invisible Zielinski and decides it by tearing and inserting you from the trocar. Spalletti made no mistakes, from the initial line-up to the changes, demonstrating that perhaps the difficult moment was only momentary.
