SoccerNapoli and Inter win in the 89th minute, Milan win by 10
The Neapolitans won against Spezia thanks to a late-game goal from Raspadori and the Intéristes did the same against Torino with a success from Brozovic. AC Milan suffered against Sampdoria.
Napoli, jaded by the excess of energy to beat Liverpool (4-1) in the Champions League, had to wait until the 89th minute to correct the error against Spezia (1-0) thanks to Giacomo Raspadori on Saturday at the start of the game to be found 6th matchday of Serie A. And also Inter Milan, who played later, had to wait until the last minute to get a valuable win over a solid Torino (1-0) thanks to a shot by Marcelo Brozovic.
In the absence of Victor Osimhen in Naples, who was away for a few weeks against the Reds after suffering a hamstring injury on Wednesday, Raspadori scored a valuable goal (28 shots) at the end of what had been a long-range dominance for the Neapolitans.
Thanks to Raspa’s first goal at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, Napoli temporarily take the lead with a lead over Atalanta Bergamo, who host Cremonese on Sunday (19th). And this ahead of another busy week with trips to Glasgow Rangers in the C1 and then AC Milan in the league.
After the Reds’ defense had grown dizzy, Georgian winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia defended again in the first half, but fell to a watchful Ligurian goalkeeper (15′, 23′). La Spezia spent most of the game in a crouch, but could have surprised Napoli twice, with a powerful shot from Emmanuel Gyasi (43′) and an ill-assisted retreat from Mario Rui, whose Jakub Kiwior almost capitalized (72′). .
And only in the final moments Raspadori was able to victoriously take over a central defender from Hirving Lozano, freeing the Diego Maradona stadium and his coach Luciano Spalletti, who was ruled out after insulting the opposing bench in the crotch.
After missing their two big meetings against AC Milan (2-3) in La Liga and then Bayern (0-2) in the Champions League, Inter also needed to secure provisional third place by beating Torino.
Samir Handanovic, who was back in goal against André Onana against the Germans on Wednesday, initially had to make more stops on his line. The interist captain intervened in front of Nikola Vlasic (20th, 66th), Antonio Sanabria (47th), Ricardo Rodriguez (57th) or even Nemanja Radonjic (83rd)!
Inter had a much harder time worrying Torino goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic as the Nerazzurri’s forwards competed with clumsiness. But it only took a great inspiration from Nicolo Barella, who found Brozovic in the penalty area, and a subtle comeback from the Croatian to tip the scales in favor of the Milanese just before the gong (89′).
Inter return to two points behind Napoli ahead of the evening’s meeting, provisional leaders who could allow AC Milan to join Napoli in the event of a win on the Sampdoria pitch in Genoa.
Milan joins Napoli
AC Milan temporarily joined Napoli at the top of Serie A in the evening by dominating Sampdoria (2-1), but suffered in a second disputed period by ten after Rafael Leao was kicked out.
Man down, the Rossoneri found the means to regain the 2-1 lead thanks to a penalty scored and converted by Olivier Giroud (67′) shortly after Filip Djuricic (57′) headed in. Another goal worth its weight in gold for Giroud, the new champions following a disgrace from Divock Origi, while Stefano Pioli would have liked to give the French some breathing space (3rd goal of the season).
But Rafael Leao, the key man in the derby against Inter (3-2) a week ago, also interfered in this tense match in Genoa. The acceleration of the Portuguese left flank, continued into the Genoese area after a relay with Giroud, was the origin of the opening of Junior Messias’ Milan result (6th).
But it was then Leao’s exclusion that changed the meaning of a game that was generally in the hands of the Milanese. The Portuguese received a second warning from the start because he shot an opponent in the face during an acrobatic return (47′). Without Leao, who will miss next week’s clash against Napoli, Pioli has reshuffled his squad, trimming it down to five defenders.
Despite a great final scare with a shot from Valerio Verre against the post and a shot by Manolo Gabbiadini from the stomach that was blocked by Mike Maignan (87′), Milan maintained their narrow lead until the end of eight minutes of stoppage time.
