The Azzurri stretch on a Milan that now has to question itself. Meanwhile, Inter and Atalanta arrive …
The Naples has metabolized in the best way the defeats of San Siro and Moscow, the Milan He did not however file the Madrid feat with Atletico. The ability to turn the page is doing the difference between Spalletti’s team and Pioli’s, now detached by 3 points and heeled by the beautiful Inter by Simone Inzaghi and also by the excellent Atalanta of Gasp, victorious after 32 years of fasting in Juventus Turin.
MERTENS: TWO GOALS IN THE NAME OF DIEGO
The success of Napoli over Lazio, very clear, the leadership is valid, but it is also a clear and limpid answer to those who answer (in many, to tell the truth) that the absences of Osimhen and Anguissa develop the ability to destabilize the maneuver and the ability to achieve. None of that. The team gave a show, in midfield they asphyxiated the slow-talented Milinkovic and Luis Alberto, and Mertens, in the evening dedicated to the memory of Diego Armando Maradona, emulated his plays with two goals from “Golden Ball” (well deserved by Lewandowsky) under the eyes of Maurizio Sarri, who 5 years ago had reinvented him as a center forward to replace the injured Milik. And he had responded with second place in the top scorer: 28 goals, one less than Dzeko.
MILAN HAS NOT BEEN SEEN
The victory of Napoli has an insatiable logic. The defeat of Milan it has no plausible explanation. Or he would if with due intellectual honesty we paused to give Sassuolo what he legitimately deserved on the pitch. But the news – ubi maior – is not the feat of the neroverdi, but the fall of the rossoneri, able to break through the Wanda Metropolitano and unable to rise to the occasion in a match that, according to Pioli, should have given further indications on the size of his team. And the match at San Siro, instead of confirming the value of the potential expressed up to now, opened the debate on his future in the league, already timidly triggered after the mistakes in Florence. I think it makes no sense to point the finger on this or that player, on the coach’s initial choices, on the many lost balls. AC Milan didn’t show up, Sassuolo yes! It is urgent to resume the abruptly interrupted speech, as early as Wednesday in Marassi against Genoa of the great former Andry Schevchenko.
THE NO MOMENT OF JUVE IS A WORRING CASE
Meanwhile, apart from what the ranking is highlighting (Rome is fifth, by virtue of the success against Turin which continues to collect undeserved 0-1 away), holds the bank the persistent no-time of Juventus, and with it yet another case that has emerged in the last few hours and which could bring out disturbing background on what happened, at the accounting level, in the period 2018/2021. Investigations and questions are underway on the many capital gains that have been used to artificially balance the budget. And I think no one can escape that the 36 months indicted coincide with the arrival and farewell of Ronaldo. His goals served to mask the technical problems, but his purchase – not shared unanimously – probably created the administrative black hole from which Juventus must try to credibly escape.
