The central game of Seria A between Napoli and Milan did not disappoint us. It was very spectacular game for neutrals. Napoli had eleven shots in first half which gave them nothing with Milan's only shot on target produced a great goal for them.

After a great combination Bonaventura scored a stunning goal for Milan just after 15 minutes of first half. Napoli tried their best to get back in the game which they dominated but all their efforts were wide or Donnarumma saved it. Second half started without changes in any of the teams and Napoli was dominating it from the first second. Although the second shot on target just after four minutes in second half, brought Milan their second goal. After another great combination this time Calabria was on finishing end. It started to look good for Milan with Napoli in very dangerous position but the difference between Sarri's Napoli and Anchelottis is the team spirit and Piotr Zielinski. After four minutes with great placed shot from outside of the box Zielinski brought one back and put Napoli back in the game. Although Zielinski had two more easier chances to score he did score his second on 67 minute after he was the first on rebound on the corner kick. This quick comeback gave Napoli mental advantage and they started to press more and took the game totally into their control. First Mertens came on for Hamsik, then Diawara came on for Zielinski. Those substitutions meant to be the key ones for Napoli when on 80th minute Diawara started a great combination which was finished by Mertens who had to put the ball almost in empty net. Also we can note Sebastian Luperto coming on for Mario Rui and looked better then the Portuguese who plays only because Ghulam is injured. On the dying moment of the match Donnarumma made a great save after Insigne's close range powerful shot but it did not help Milan at all and Napoli made another great comeback. In first leg they turned 1:0 into 1:2 at Lazio now they turned 0:2 into 3:2 with Milan that shows some character which was missing with Sarri. Well now Napoli has two games two wins and gets equal points with Juventus.
