The actions of the Italian Serie A continue and, from this Sunday onwards we have a new leader of the championship, AC Milan who; with their victory at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium against Napoli with a score of 1-0, managed to take first place in Calcio’s standings; 2 points above Inter, who have one game less played and 3 points above Napoli.
From what we have seen throughout the season; it will be a difficult and very good fight for first place in the standings. We know that due to the level shown, Milan will manage to be at the top of the table.
The game started with a devastating pace, where the first 15 minutes of the game was Napoli’s best moment. Following some local area contact between Bennacer and Koulibaly; there was another good moment from Milan, with Tomori taking down the ever-active Osimhen.
Once Napoli’s first dangerous attack had passed without a hitch, Milan grew. With pressure and very good organization, they did not leave depth to Osimhen’s arrivals. As the minutes went by, they took control of the match.
Both teams continued with the siege in the rival area; but without getting the score that would give them the advantage on the scoreboard. The first half of this match between Milan and Napoli to define, momentarily, the first place in the Calcio standings ended with a score of 0-0.
The second half began with a relentless attack by Milan, which was capitalized on by Oliver Giroud, who got the 1-0 on the scoreboard with a good tap in thanks to his good positioning, emulating what Pipo Inzaghi did many times with Milan.
This goal, without a doubt, managed to uncover the game, which turned again in the opposite direction. Napoli tried to stifle Milan’s exits, to take advantage of some mistake by the rival and thus, in a counterattack, equalize the game.
The game gave no respite. Napoli responded quickly through Osimhen, but the shot came out, although powerful, focused, and easy to save for French goalkeeper Mike Maignan.
The final minutes were up to the occasion. Napoli pressed, with the fans devoted to the team, aware of the opportunity they were losing to establish themselves in the lead, but Milan brought out their maturity so as not to lose the face of the game at any time.
