Napoli 2-1 Juventus Highlights | Serie A

Raspadori was lightning-fast to seize the opportunity after Victory Osimhen’s 88th-minute penalty was thwarted by Wojciech Szczesny. He hammered the ball off the post into the net, igniting the home crowd with joy.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia gave Napoli the lead just before halftime with an incredible volley that flew into the net at the near post. However, Napoli struggled to keep control in the second half, allowing Federico Chiesa to equalize with a powerful shot in the 81st minute.

Despite Osimhen winning a penalty seven minutes later, which was initially missed by the referee but confirmed by VAR, he couldn’t convert as Szczesny made a diving save to his left. However, Raspadori was lightning-quick to pounce on the rebound and bury it emphatically, leaving Juve players momentarily questioning if he had encroached. Replays later showed he hadn’t.

With this win, Napoli climbed to seventh in the standings with 43 points, while Juventus remained in second place with 57 points. Inter Milan, the leader, had the chance to extend their lead to a massive 15 points with a win over Genoa on Tuesday (AEDT).
