Juventus’ desperate performance throughout the season made the impossible possible. A team other than Turin is likely to win the national championship this year.
Special details and errors
And this club should be Inter, who were preceded by an impressive series of 11 successive league victories, and who before this round had a safe advantage, more than 10 points over Milan II.
However, Napoli also achieved a very decent level in the spring, allowing even to contemplate a place in the top four in the table. And when two good teams met at Diego Armando Maradona’s stadium, it was clear that the details and our mistakes would determine the fate of the match.
Such a strange mistake was made by Samir Handanovic, who, in the 36th minute, while trying to take the middle from the left wing, bumped into Stefan de Vrie and threw the ball himself into the net.
In the second half, detail and subtlety dominate. He showed the latter with a powerful and equalizing shot from the 55th minute by Christian Eriksen.
Piotr Zieliński played with ambition and traditional charm in the central parts of the field, but this time he did not highlight the best season in terms of numbers with a goal or assists. He left the stadium two minutes before the end.
Despite the efforts made by both sides, the evening yielded a result that neither side fully enjoyed. Inter maintained their lead, but their lead over Milan dwindled to nine points still impressive. On the other hand, Napoli missed the opportunity to catch up with Juventus fourth and approach the penalty area to be granted the right to play in the Champions League. Seven rounds by the end of the season.
Napoli-Inter 1: 1
Goals: Samir Handanovic (36) – Christian Eriksen (55).
