Napoli destroys Roma in Stadio Olimpico
This meeting was called the hit of the 29th round of Serie A. Napoli came to Stadio Olimpico, which peacefully maintains the position of vice-leader. For the Roma, in turn, every point is now worth its weight in gold. Claudio Ranieri's charges were sixth before this game and they do not intend to forsake the Champions League. Only four points are lost to the fourth Milan. I was hoping that Arek Milik and Edin Dzeko would give a good show today. Squads: Roma: Olsen- Kolarov, Fazio, Manolas, Santon- N'zonzi, De Rossi (82' Kluivert), Perotti (82' Under), Cristante, Schick (63' Zaniolo)- Dzeko Napoli: Meret- Rui, Koulibaly, Maksimovic, Hysaj (68' Malcuit)- Verdi (74' Younes), Ruiz, Allan, Callejon- Milik, Mertens (58' Ounas) The fans did not manage to sit down well in their chairs, and the first goal has already been scored. In the second minute Arek Milik packed the ball into the goal. The Pole received an exact pass in the penalty area, turned around and defeated Roma with a very strong shot. It was Milik's 16th hit in the Italian league this season. The goal scored encouraged the guests to carry out further attacks. Simone Verdi had a chance to raise the lead, but in this case Olsen was the top. Later, the pace of the game slightly slowed down. Napoli players played the ball in a positional attack, not allowing rivals on their own half. The hosts earned their first goal in the 18th minute. It was then that N'zonzi headed for Meret's goal, but the ball hit flew past the post. It was a very good day for the Milik. The ball was looking for a Polish sniper in the penalty box. In the 36th minute he could already have a doubler on his account, because after his shot he landed in the net. A few seconds later the referee whistled the burned one and the Roma goalkeeper resumed the game from his own goal. When it seemed that nothing interesting was waiting for us in the first half, at the end of the added time of the game, the referee dictated the penalty shoot. Meret wanted to save his team and went out of the gate, fouling at the same time Schick. Perotti approached the eleventh metre ball and defeated the goalkeeper Napoli with a shot. It was the last accent of the first part of the match. After a break Carlo Ancelotti's charges continued their good play and it was them who were much more often on the ball. You didn't have to wait long for the effects. Already in the 50th minute Dries Mertens took his team to the lead. Callejon perfectly spotted him near the penalty box, played the exact ball, and the attacker of Napoli could not waste such a great opportunity. Roma's players were not able to answer their rivals, who were pushing all the time against Olsen's goal. In 54th minute we already had 1:3. Guests brought out an instant counter, and the enforcer in this action was Simone Verdi, who did not give a chance to the goalkeeper. The hosts were in shock. In this situation, winning even one point would be a great success. Napoli controlled the field events and in the 81st minute Amin Younes made the final blow, scoring a goal at 1:4. The guests gave today at the Olimpico Stadium a lesson of good football to their rivals. Dzeko and the company were going down to the cloakroom hearing the whistles of frustrated fans. Thanks to Napoli's victory, they strengthens itself in second place, while Roma complicated its situation in the context of the fight for the best four. The style presented today by the charges of Claudio Ranieri does not bode well for further competition in Serie A.
