Napoli obtained a famous 2-1 at home against Roma, thanks to a goal by Giovanni Simeone five minutes from the end and remained at the top of the Italian Serie A standings, aiming for the Scudetto, with 13 points ahead of Inter.
Victor Osimhen gave the Neapolitan team the lead, Stephan El Shaarawy (74′) established the momentary draw and Simeone (85′) sealed the victory of the Neapolitan team over the one led by José Mourinho.
Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti said that “you win these matches if you are determined”. “They’re delicate matches and whoever came on did so with the right attitude,” he said.
Roma were booked first and seemed closer, but Victor Osimhen arrived who stopped a cross from Georgian Khvicha Kvaratskhelia with his chest, rebounded with his thigh and broke Patricio’s goal. If you don’t think he was a big target, see for yourself.
Roma reacted to the goal late in the first half, with a high shot from Paulo Dybala and a half-volley from Lorenzo Spinazzola that Alex Meret sent for a corner with a great save.
Shortly before, Osimhen could have scored the second goal, heading Mexican Hirving Lozano in the center who, with Rui Patricio beaten, went just over (45 ‘).
In the second half, Roma take a step forward and Meret saves his team with a double save (62), just before Lozano has the opportunity to double (63) if he hadn’t met a great Rui Patricio.
José Mourinho’s team equalized 15 minutes from time, with a cross from the right that Stephan El Shaarawy finished in front of his mark (75′).
But everything seems to be going right this season for the Neapolitan team. After the draw, the DT Luciano Spalletti removes Lozano from the field to insert Simeone and the Argentine forward responded to that confidence by scoring the winning goal.
