After the masterpiece of “Kvaradona” and the failure of Inter, Napoli rushes towards the “Scudetto”



Lovrić helped Udinese to victory with a pass

Napoli players eliminated Atalanta 2-0 in the 26th round of Serie A and once again have a huge 18-point lead over Inter, who suffered a big slip. Spezia was better with 2:1.

Last week, the Neapolitans lost for the first time at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium this season. Lazio took three points (0:1), but it was just a bad night for Luciano Spalletti’s team.

This time they had three good chances already in the first half, but Atalanta’s goalkeeper Juan Musso always proved himself.

After an hour of play, Victor Osimhen found Hviča Kvarachelija 20 meters from the goal. The Georgian, who is one of the best players in Serie A this season, shuffled the defense of the visitors from Bergamo, set the ball on his right foot and put it under the crossbar. The fans gave him the nickname Kvaradona, and indeed even the famous Argentine would be proud of such a masterpiece. Maradona excelled in 1987 and 1990 when Napoli won the “Scudetto”.

In the 77th minute, reserve player Eljif Elmas passed from a corner into the middle of the penalty area, and defender Amir Rrahmani headed the ball into the small net.

With this victory, the Neapolitans already have 68 points, or 18 more than the second-placed Inter, so the only question is when Napoli will confirm the third championship title in the club’s history. After 33 years, the long drought will end in May. There are 12 rounds left until the end of the season.

Lovrić helped Udinese to victory with a pass Empoli lost against Udinese with 0:1. The decision was made in the 54th minute, when Slovenian international Sandi Lovrić took a corner and passed in front of the goal, and Rodrigo Becao shook the net with his head. The teams were fairly equal in shots, and Empoli had the ball in their possession for almost two-thirds of the time.

Already in the first half, Udinese’s defender Jaka Bijol also had his chance, but his header was a little inaccurate. The Slovenian representative played the entire match, while Lovrić played until the 80th minute. At home, Lovro Štubljar was on the bench for reserve players, while Petar Stojanović played until the 90th minute.

Spezia shocked InterSpezia were looking forward to a resounding victory on Friday night. In the first half, Inter first missed a penalty through Lautaro Martinez, but in the 55th minute, Spezia took the lead with a goal from Daniel Maldini.

Romelu Lukaku equalized from the spot for Inter in the 83rd minute, but the hosts scored the winner three minutes from time. The most severe penalty was successfully executed by M’Bala Nzola, who was the passer for the first goal.

Tio Cipot did not get a chance to play for Spezia, who are 17th in the table, while Samir Handanović defended the whole game.
