Naples engaged Torino in a goalless draw in Seria A Match


Naples received Torino this Friday to open the 28th day of Series A in Italy. The Neapolitans have not managed to win and give up two important points. The match ended with a goalless draw of 1-1.

The defending champion certainly does not experience the same joys as last season. 7th in the standings before the start of the game, the Calzona men then had to win to get closer to their rivals and hope to position themselves in the best possible way to catch a good European place at the end of the season. Ngonge was not on the match sheet while Leander Dendoncker remained on the bench the whole game.

After a rather disappointing first half, the two teams return to the locker room with a 0-0.

In the 61st minute, the talented Georgian, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia opens the score in favor of Naples. But a few minutes later, Antonio Sanabria, who has been in the game for only 1 minute, comes to air-condition the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona with a magnificent bicycle on a corner.

Naples will continue to push, but against a cautious Torino the task will have been too complicated for the Neapolitans who concede the draw and let 2 points slip.

In the ranking, things become really complicated for Naples, which risks seeing Bologna, Rome and Atalanta widen the gap. They remain 7th for the moment but Fiorentina (who will face Roma on Sunday at 8:45 p.m.) could overtake Naples in case of victory.

Naples has a crucial trip this Tuesday to Barcelona in the Champions League. They had made a draw in the first leg and hope remains possible.
