Serie A: Napoli wins in Florence, Milan remains second – Sport

The knockout in the Europa League was just a hiccup, Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli collects the seventh success in a row, the escape becomes more consistent also because it was not easy to overturn the match in Florence, with Lozano and Rrahmani. Scudetto ambitions are strengthened. AC Milan keep pace, passing 3-2 at Atalanta and confirming themselves in second place, at -2 from the Azzurri. A success despite the Rossoneri reaching 3-0 (Calabria scored after 28 “, Tonali and Leao in the second half), but then immediately the return of the Bergamo players with the penalty from Zapata and Pasalic’s goal in the recovery. The chronicle Mourinho’s Roma is back at a gallop, elaborating the mourning of the derby thanks to captain Pellegrini who celebrates his contract renewal with a goal and unlocks the match against Empoli. The chronicle

After the successes of Inter and Juventus, the only great one who remains at the post is Lazio, which is entangled in Bologna, giving in with a crash and giving a smile to the former Mihajlovic. In the other poker games of Verona at La Spezia it reflects on the position of Thiago Motta, while it is a spectacular 3-3 between Sampdoria and Udinese with Candreva as protagonist. It is Fiorentina who play the game without fear and with personality, forcing Napoli to be cautious. A bit of tiredness emerges for the leaders also for the vitality of the viola who pass with Quarta on an initiative by Vlahovic. But Osimhen with his vehemence earns a penalty: Insigne is rejected by Dragowski who is skewered by Lozano. The viola deflates and Napoli take the game with a header from Rrhamani, repeating the feat of Udine. Then the violets come close but also the guests have the possibility to make the success richer. The dross of the derby seems to be outdated. Roma after Zorya overcomes the Empoli obstacle that puts them in difficulty in the first half with a careful game, as happens especially in away games. It takes the skill of captain Pellegrini, with a clarification on the cue of Mkhitaryan to unlock the result, then Roma relaxes, creates, wastes but doubles. Abraham’s bomb on Henderson’s nonsense that pierces the crossbar, the Armenian collects on the fly and scores. Too bad to be true. Lazio collapsed revitalizing Bologna and losing themselves after a week of glory with the derby and success in Europe. Mihajlovic, confirmed despite some setbacks, resurrects with three youngsters: Barrow (22), Theate (21) and Hickey (19) asphalt a Lazio with low batteries. Sarri complains about the little recovery after Europe, but the problem is that there are no alternatives to the owners, Pedro and Anderson by covering little and without the building suffers too much. Now there is also red for Acerbi which deprives him of the challenge against Inter. Bologna gives proof of character, regains strength and grabs a flattering ranking position. Emotions and entertainment between Sampdoria and Udinese. Quagliarella is released, on a penalty, but the Dorian protagonist is still Candreva who forces his opponents to an own goal and then carries on with a spectacular shot. In Genoa he found the best inspiration but the team remains in troubled waters because Udinese, square and balanced, first takes the lead, then undergoes overtaking and finds the final 3-3 with Forastieri. Tudor in seventh heaven: in four games eight points and Verona returns to excellent levels. A poker at the Bentegodi and the Spezia is set up for the holidays. But in reality a lot of credit goes to the Veronese goalkeeper Montipo ‘who saves various situations and then Manaj and Verde also make the impossible mistake. But the Tudor team is back to shooting like last year with Juric. Simeone’s graft proves to be fundamental: his first goal, then Faraoni, Caprari with a shot around and Bessa pack the triumph
