Napoli used a 4-3-3 formation. Hvica Kvarachhelia, Victor Osimen and Irving Lozano were placed in the top three. The midfield was played by Piotr Zielinski, Stanislav Robotka and Jambo Angusha. The four backs were paired with Mario Hui, Kim Min-jae, Amir Rahmani, and Giovanni Di Lorenzo, and the goalkeeper gloves were worn by Alex Meret.
An opportunity to strike a wedge came to Min-jae Kim, who was showing solid defense. In the 34th minute of the first half, in a corner kick situation, Kim Min-jae fired a high-scoring header shot. The ball hit the crossbar and then hit the goalkeeper’s foot and went out. It was not recognized as a goal as it barely crossed the goal line. Earlier, following the match against Monza (round 2) and against Lazio (round 5), the third goal was almost born, but no luck followed.

In the meantime, Napoli took the win through two goals. In the 17th minute of the first half, after a corner kick, the second ball headed for Kvarachhelia in front of the penalty box. This was connected again with a cross, and Zielinski, rushing in from the other side, attempted a non-stop grounder cross. The ball hit the defender’s foot in front of the goal and led to an own goal. 바카라사이트
