SSC Napoli is getting closer and closer to the Italian championship. The team won against AS Roma. Milan, on the other hand, lost points.
Napoli came to a happy 2-1 (1-0) against AS Roma. Napoli took the lead through Victor Osimhen (17th). After Rome’s equalizer (75′), Giovanni Simeone ensured the hosts’ victory four minutes before the end of normal time.
Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt’s Champions League round of 16 opponents still have a comfortable 13-point lead over Inter Milan, who won 2-1 at US Cremonese.
Milan are defeated by Sassuolo
Another pursuer, on the other hand, dropped points: AC Milan had to accept a sensitive setback in the race for participation in the Champions League. Milan surprisingly lost 2:5 (1:3) to relegation candidate Sassuolo Calcio and fell out of the Champions League ranks as a result of the second defeat in a row.
Goals from vice world champion Olivier Giroud (24th) to make it 1: 2 in the meantime and from Divock Origi (81st) to make it 2: 5 were not enough for Milan to make up for the recent disastrous 0: 4 at Lazio Rome. On the contrary: The highly motivated outsider earned the success through a solid team effort. Gregoire Defrel (19′), Davide Frattesi (21′), Domenico Berardi (30′), Armand Lauriente (47′, penalty kick) and Matheus Henrique (79′) scored. The outstanding player was Berardi, who not only scored himself but also added three more goals.
Record champions Juventus Turin meanwhile remained without a win due to the 0: 2 (0: 2) against promoted AC Monza in the second game after the deduction of 15 points due to balance sheet fraud.
