Napoli is strong even without Osimhen, and Milan miss Liao massively. And even the seat betrays Pioli | first page

If the Milan fans, instead of spending time insulting me, had a little more confidence in my predictions, they would be less angry at the defeat and would learn to treat football as the worst of the crooks. I said, in fact, that Napoli was very much a favorite against Milan and Napoli came out of the San Siro with a win (2-1) and three points, making it lead the standings with Atalanta.. I Milan He scored a goal, hit two poles, attacked in general, but lost. Because, as I expected, His opponent experiences a state of sheer grace, he is good and lucky, he is small in size, and above all – another fitting expectation – he has reserves often better than the owners. Thus, despite the insufficient evidence Raspadori, the inclusion of Simeone In his place, he got the winning goal. While Krunic was unexpectedly lined up by Stefano Pioli instead of the suspended player Lion, was not a good substitute for the Portuguese. And after him, not even Messias who called Meret, like Krunich, to a decisive show.

Liao, however, is another thing. The belt rips with its stride, it is light as a breeze and flexible as a rush. Sure, sometimes he’s a little distracted, but He felt his absence very much. If we add to that, Milan hasn’t had (and won’t be for long) either Rebek who – which origiThe picture on the eve of this match was very clear. Then, in the interval, Pioli preferred to remove it as jayer e Calabria Because they were warned (both of incorrect interventions against infidels), the bench proved even more stingy: destinationsubstituted for Calabria, got a penalty for a foul on the Georgian (Var interfered), Kalulu (who took Kiar’s place) sent under the bar, but not into the net, the shot very possible 2- 2.

Naples was also lacking in Osimhen, but – as we have seen – he did not regret it. An unmistakable sign that Napoli are not dependent on the Nigerian striker, just as they are not dependent on him Kvaratskhelia. Today, the team is a polyphonic orchestra supervised by Spalletti, and on the pitch, it has a good midfield (AnguissaAnd the lobotka e Zelensky), while behind the defense admits nothing (heroic, in this case, Mario Roy).

Obviously it can’t be said, just because they suffered, Napoli didn’t deserve to win. Having a goalkeeper saves (finally Merritt Everyone is denied) plus. As for the accidents instead of the ambushes of bad luck, In the end they are just wrong conclusions. A little bit wrong.

As we expected, it was an open and exciting match. In the first half, Milan was much better in terms of controlling the game, possession of the ball, and chances. But, first (13 minutes), the skew sent Giroud’s header up to the top of the bar. Then (25 minutes), Giroud again, in half over his head, expected the touch that could be decisive from Calabria. Finally (27 min), from the right corner, Krunic hit his head and Merritt flew for his first decisive tackle.

Napoli, who was only seen by Politano with a header, and was saved by two halves by Minnian, began to recover better. After only eight minutes (53 minutes), Dest touched Kvartsqualia’s foot in the box. Var Mariani was summoned and rigor, albeit financial, was granted. From the spot, Politano hit on the right of Minyan who felt it. But the bullet slipped from under his arm.

The Rossoneri flocked to the Azores and The protagonist became Theo Hernandez, with a header (56′) off Di Lorenzo’s back. Ten minutes (66 minutes) and Bewley, later destination e rabbitput in The messiah for Krunic e Diaz As for the Saelemaekers, while the Napoli bench ordered the replacement of the bruised Politano zerbin The Raspadori with Simeone.

The equalizer in Milan (69 minutes) was preceded by a shot from Messias, which Merritt blocked again. However, the Napoli goalkeeper could not touch Giroud’s wide open door. Work was great and it started Ketelaere Opening on the left for the amazing progress of Theo HernandezZerbin chased after her in vain. The low cross, backwards, was for the French striker who fired it comfortably.

At that point, with the San Siro pushing, it looked like Milan was on the cusp of overtaking Napoli. But at 77 minutes, Mario Rui crowned his excellent match by inviting Simeone, who ascended to heaven, ahead of Tomori. His role left any chance for Minyan.

At that point, Bewley put judicial For De Ketelaere. But Napoli was still dealing with the French goalkeeper zerbin (Right hit neutralizes it in two stages). Paradoxically, with Napoli unbalanced forward, rabbit He started and finished with a counterattack, it passed through Diaz’s feet and then, as always, to the left of Theo, who put the Rossoneri defender in front of goal. The shot was very powerful under the bar. I hit herBut the ball came back on the field and flew away.

It was the 85th minute, but the remaining minutes and the extra six minutes did not change the match. Napoli wins, Milan responds.
