Salernitana vs Napoli 0 - 1 (Serie A 2021 Goals & Highlights)

1 month ago

Napoli maintained top spot in Serie A with a 1-0 win at Salernitana on Sunday, but they had to work hard against the relegation battlers as Piotr Zielinski scored a scrappy winner and both sides had players sent off late in the game.

The result leaves Luciano Spalletti's unbeaten side with 31 points, three clear of second-placed AC Milan, who visit Roma in Sunday's late game. Salernitana are 19th with seven points.

Napoli struggled to threaten in the absence of injured top scorer Victor Osimhen and captain Lorenzo Insigne, who was only fit enough for the bench, but they eventually broke through in chaotic fashion in the 61st minute.

Substitute Andrea Petagna headed against the bar, the ball was cleared as far as Mario Rui and the defender's shot deflected into the path of Zielinski for a close-range finish.

It was Napoli's first shot on target and proved to be enough for a precious win, but there was more incident to come as Salernitana midfielder Grigoris Kastanos and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly earned red cards inside the final 20 minutes.
