Osimhen Returns From Injury As Nine-Man Verona Frustrate Napoli To 1-1 Draw 

Victor Osimhen returned to Napoli’s starting line-up but could not inspire them to secure all three points, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by nine-man Verona in Sunday’s Serie A fixture, Completesports.com reports.

Osimhen, who was out of Napoli’s last two games, was  replaced in the 90th minute.

Luciano Spalletti’s men missed the chance to break away at the top with Milan and Inter going head-to-head later on Sunday evening.

Verona took the lead in the 13th minute as Antonin Barak shrugged off Mario Rui and pulled back from the by-line, where Giovanni Simeone got in front of Amir Rrahmani to prod in from six yards.

Napoli got back on level terms on 18 minutes. A free kick was not cleared properly, Fabian Ruiz laid it off for Giovanni Di Lorenzo, who squirmed the finish under Lorenzo Montipò at the near post.

Verona had both Daniel Bessa and Nikola Kalinic sent off in the 88th and 93rd minutes, but held on to clinch a point.

And in another Serie A game, Simy Nwankwo and Joel Obi featured in Salernitana’s 3-0 loss at Lazio.

Both players were then taken off in the second half.

  • The referee was a confused one. Osimhen was pulled down inside eighteen. instead of him to award a penalty to Napoli he gave Osimhen yellow card. Even if the referee was not sure of the foul committed I was expecting him to check VAR.

    Also, only one out of the two red cards to the visitor was justified.

     
  • The chinks in Napoli’s armour are beginning to widen when the the battle has barely begun.

    A team with genuine intentions of winning the scudetto will first certify that they have unbreakable cohesion and are kinds of rancour in the dressing room is doused.

    When players stop playing for each other or become more selfish on the field of play, this is what you get in the end: an attack that had lost its ferocity.

    Is better that no penalty was awarded o..I don’t want a situation that our boy will work hard, win a penalty for the team, then you will see that selfish nigga insigne step up to take and steal the shine.. am sorry I know is all for the team but I can’t stand it no more

    I saw the game, the two red card was well deserved. I wonder why they didn’t give more red cards to those Verona players.. They came to kill and not to play football. There was a tackle on oshimen that I thought was obviously a penalty but the referee gave play on.. I was so happy oshimen didnt go injured after such a tackle. That boy is so strong to survive such tackle.. Such a referee should not officiate matches of that magnitude, he allowed the Verona players to continue to play roughly. If he had given at least penalty they would have stopped their dangerous play

     
  • Insigne may cost Napoli the title if the coach doesn’t call him to order…….I see a Steven Gerald happening to Insigne……..Club legend always want to overdo especially when they have been starved of the title for long like Liverpool then…….The Legend always wants to take the Glory…..He always thinks he is destined for it not knowing that destiny can be achieved in countless ways and through unexpected people……. That was exactly what happened to Gerald and Liverpool that year…… Liverpool broke that jinx recently easily because that generation was gone and the new generation didn’t have such burden to carry…… Insigne is overworking himself, he wants to carry all the responsibility and it may cost Napoli the title just like it did to Liverpool…….this I have observed.

      I’m sorry to say this my darling Osimhen. Napoli can’t win the scudetto this season. I watch their games a lot and still can’t find that champion mentality in the team. Too many selfish players. You can’t win a title with just individual brilliance. I watched the Milan derby this night and AC Milan convinced me they’re truly ready for the challenge. They played as a team all thru and looking at squad depths, it won’t be an exaggeration if one say they’re favorite along with Inter. Napoli players are still not playing to Osimhen strength. There are some situation they need to cross in the ball for him to nod rather they withheld the ball unnecessary or just keep passing sideways. You see that Lozano, Politano and Insigne are just fucking selfish and it going to cost them a lot. Top 4 is all i could see them achieve this season
