As against Napoli decides Theo Hernandez, Milan one point behind Juventus

At the Meazza Stadium, Milan beat Napoli 1-0 in today’s last match of the 24th day of Serie A consolidating their third place in the standings. After ten minutes of study, the first chance è for the Parthenopeans: Kvaratskhelia from the right side puts in the middle where Simeone shoots with first intention but sends wide.

When Napoli seemed to be in control of the game, Milan took the lead on 25’: Leao in depthà for Theo Hernandez who comes in front of Gollini and pierces him. Shortly afterwards the same Leao tried from outside the area with a shot on the turn, Gollini repelled. The Rossoneri just before the end of the first half lost Calabria, who was replaced by Florenzi.

Resume. On 48’ Adli for Florenzi who shoots from the edge. Gollini blocks in two times anticipating Giroud. At 51’ Politano on a counterattack shoots on the’outside of the net. At 54’ Bennacer’s mistake on which Simeone wastes a good chance by sending high, and shortly after Mazzarri replaces him by sending in Raspadori.

At 60’ Politano from outside the area, ball going out by a whisker. At 70’ Musah serves Leao on the left, the Portuguese shoots at the second post narrowly missing his aim. At’89’ Napoli came close to equalizing with a Simic own goal that deflected an attempted pass from Lindstrom, on the follow up Politano shot from the edge but Maignan deflected it for a corner. Despite seven minutes of recovery è this was the last chance for the partenopei, Milan won 1-0 and moved to within one point of Juventus.
