Match Report: Napoli 1-1 Cagliari

Injury time is still a friend of ours, even in Naples. Nahitan Nandez's goal in the 94th minute gives the equalizer to Cagliari, and this is a vital for the no relegation fight. “Cuor di León”, the Uruguayan, but not only him: all his team-mates who snatched one point against an opponent in a great shape, on their way to gain the qualification for the next Champions League.

Napoli started the game all-attacking: Osimhen scored at 13', exploiting a fine lob by Insigne, the nigerian resisted to Godin and precisely shot past Cragno.

Cagliari got close to equalize, but Zappa's shot hit the post, and then Meret made great saves to Pavoletti's header and Nandez's rebound.

In the second half, Napoli attacked again and a goal by Osimhen was disallowed for a foul on Godin. Demme hit the crossbar with a fierce shot. But in the final minutes Cagliari desperately launched to Meret's goal in order to equalize. The Napoli's goalie was great to save on Pavoletti's volley, but nothing could at 94' on Nandez's touch, served by a fine ball from Duncan.

1-1, Cagliari reached 32 points, on Sunday the Rossoblù will play Benevento, and it will probably be a decisive game.
