Round 28 of Serie A witnessed AC Milan’s trip to Napoli, the team that is leading the rankings. And in a day when Victor Osimhen was not registered to play, Napoli lost themselves.
They lost two goals in just 25 minutes, after goals from Rafael Leao and Brahim Diaz. By the 67th minute, the score was 4-0 for the red half of Milan. The person who entered the electronic board again was Leao and the other table belonged to Alexis Saelemaekers.
This victory does not make Napoli’s chances of winning Serie A narrower, when they are 16 points away from second place Lazio. However, it is a perfect rehearsal for Milan to beat Napoli in the two upcoming Champions League quarter-finals.
A few hours earlier, AS Roma had made no mistake to beat Sampdoria 3-0 at the Olimpico. This was a match where Roma were played more than people from 52 minutes. Less than 10 minutes later, Georginio Wijnaldum concretized the advantage with the opening goal after Matic’s clear pass.
It had to wait until the last minutes of Paulo Dybala and Stephan El Shaarawy to close the match box with consecutive goals in the 88th and 90+4 minutes. Winning the match, Roma was equal on points with the 4th-ranked team – Inter Milan and only behind due to poor difference.
