Lorenzo Insigne’s late goal gave Napoli 2-1 win over Roma

AS Roma is losing their third match in a row. A crucial result for the Europa League places with Napoli level on points with Roma. Lorenzo Insigne’s late goal gave Napoli 2-1 win over Roma.

The 30th round of Serie A promised to be very interesting. I’m talking about teams that are fighting for direct promotion to the Europa League. Both teams wanted to forge after their last meetings. While Napoli lost their match to Atalanta, which was not a big surprise,

Roma should score three points from Udinese and get three points less. So it was certain that at least one of these teams would score more points than in the previous round.

However, we saw the first dangerous action in the 12th minute but after a shot by Fabian Ruiz, Pau Lopez showed a good intervention. A moment later Zieliński also had a chance to score but again goalkeeper Romy did a great job. After a few actions of Napoli, the charges of Paulo Fonseca finally came to the fore but Pellegrini’s dangerous shot blocked Manolas.

The match was still not impressive, there were not many interesting actions but in the 32nd minute, it should be 1-0. Milik hit the crossbar after a headshot and Callejon’s stamp of four meters to put it mildly, left much to be desired.

Another Napoli action at the end of the first half and again Milik and Lopez again well at the goal. Half a minute later Pellegrini missed a chance from the other side. To Hulf time 0- 0

In the 56th minute, we got something that was missing in the first forty-five minutes. Mario Rui also did something that he did not happen too often in the match, he threw it well into the penalty area, and Callejon did something well and he scored on the goal.

Four minutes later it was already 1- 1. Up to the 82nd minute it was only five minutes where we saw some interesting actions. It was then that Insigne turned the croissant so well that Lopez did not take it out 2- 1. And this result ended this meeting.

In the match for six points, it is Roma that loses those points than Napoli gains. In the table, both have 48 points but looking at the form of both teams, Napoli is closer to 5th place at the moment. Remember, Nicolo Zaniolo’s return after breaking the ligaments and almost a six-month break from playing football.
