It is a Napoli that makes one of the most titled players catch the one that faces the Leipzig in the sixteenth of Europa League in an unpopulated San Paolo and where the climate is polar.
With Reina in the door the Napoli ranks Maggio on the right and Hysaj on the left, Tonelli and Koulibaly central: same role on the bench the 17 year old Alberto Senese.
Allan and Jorginho rest in midfield and Rog and Diawara play with Hamsik. In attack with Mertens disqualified play Callejon in the middle, left Zielinski and right Ounas. There
game in the first quarter of an hour is substantially balanced.
Some nice cues from Callejon, a few too many mistakes from Koulibaly, a lot of speed: this is the picture of most of the first half.
The recovery begins with a Napoli tonic: it takes a few minutes and it is Ounas who changes the result.
Sarri sends Ounas out and enters Lorenzo Insigne. In the 61st minute there was a draw and it was Werner who scored it.
Quick reversals in front, on both sides. Bell’action of Insigne but Gulačsi puts in the corner. And in the 73rd minute Leipzig took the lead with Bruma.
A few minutes from the end he enters the Leipzig Demme: his name is Diego because his father was a big fan of the Naples of Maradona. Another distraction from Diawara and Werner marks again. Napoli lost 3-1.
