Serie A Drama

Napoli clinched a crucial victory over Juventus in a thrilling Serie A encounter on Sunday evening, propelling them into seventh place in the league standings. The result, which saw Giacomo Raspadori snatch a dramatic late winner, keeps their hopes of UEFA Champions League qualification alive, while also aiding Inter Milan's title ambitions.

Giacomo Raspadori emerged as the hero for Napoli, coming off the bench to score the decisive goal in the 88th minute. His composed finish from the rebound of Victor Osimhen's saved penalty sealed the victory and marked Francesco Calzona's first win as caretaker manager at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Napoli had initially taken the lead through Khvicha Kvaratskhelia's superb first-half volley, capitalizing on Juventus' missed opportunities. However, Federico Chiesa's late equalizer threatened to deny Napoli victory before Raspadori's intervention secured all three points.

With this win, Napoli climbs to seventh in Serie A, trailing the European places by four points and the top four by eight points. Meanwhile, Juventus remains 12 points behind league leaders Inter Milan, who have a game in hand.

Talking Point: Vlahovic's Forgettable Night


Despite entering the match in sublime form, Dusan Vlahovic endured a forgettable outing against Napoli. The Serie A's top scorer failed to convert several excellent chances, squandering opportunities that could have turned the tide in Juventus' favour.

In a disappointing performance, Vlahovic missed multiple clear-cut chances in the first half, including hitting the post from a difficult angle. His subdued second-half display, coupled with a denied half-chance by Alex Meret, highlighted his struggles on the night.

While Vlahovic's goal-scoring prowess is undeniable, this underwhelming performance on a significant occasion for Juventus will leave a lasting impression. Despite his impressive movement, this match will be remembered as one to forget for the talented striker.
