The goals of the game
Napoli needed just 8 minutes of the ball rolling to open the scoring. After a corner kick from the right, Osimhen rose high between the defenders to deflect with a header to open the scoring.
At 35, it was Kvaratskhelia’s turn to do his. After hitting the ball in the chest inside the area, the attacker was kicked by the defender and the referee signaled a maximum penalty. He went to charge himself. With a shot in the middle of the goal, he saw the goalkeeper choose the left corner and the net swing.
At the start of the second Osimhen scored once more. At 5 minutes, Mathías Oliveira crossed from the left into the area looking for the number 9. The attacker, who was in the middle of the area, made an effort to reach the ball and managed to touch it with his head very close to the second post.
The visitors consecrated the rout in the 22nd minute. Osimhen fought for possession and played for Kvaratskhelia, who found Ndombélé in front of goal. The steering wheel touched between the goalkeeper’s legs and made it 4-0.
