On behalf of the 36th day of Serie A, Napoli (7th, 56 points) welcomed Sassuolo (8th, 48 units) this Saturday evening at the Stadio San Paolo. After their loss to Parma, the Partenopei wanted to return to victory to return to a small point behind AC Milan, sixth. The Neroverdi could for their part get closer to their evening opponent in case of success. And the least we can say is that the locals were very hot, while the visitors deserved much better.
From the 8th minute, Hysaj opened the scoring for Gennaro Gattuso’s team. But behind, the Neapolitans have suffered a lot. The visitors even scored four times, but all goals were refused for offside (Djuricic in the 32nd and 37th, Caputo in the 49th and finally Berardi in the 61st)! Politano found him the post at the end of the game (87th) before the goal of the break from his teammate Allan (90th + 4, 2-0). With this success in this match with an unprecedented scenario, Napoli is therefore one point behind AC Milan in the ranking, while Sassuolo is still eighth and will not play on the European stage in 2020-2021.
