PlayOn99 brings you the football news of the Serie A match that left cloth to cut with two games between great teams. Milan is still on the right track and blows behind Inter, while Juventus could not get into the Champions League zone.
Juventus 1 – 1 Napoli
Juventus fails to storm the Champions zone. Allegri’s men drew 1-1 at home against Napoli in a match marked by coronavirus casualties in both teams.
Dries Mertens put Napoli ahead in the first half and Federico Chiesa tied the game at game time. Juventus looked for a victory that would bring them closer to fourth position, but it did not arrive in time.

Despite putting in Paulo Dybala, who had a foul at the last minute, the decisive player was Chiesa. The Italian forward has something extra in the 1vs1 and the determination for each play. A man of danger.
Juventus was fifth in Serie A, three points behind Atalanta, who had their match this day postponed due to massive infections.

Milan 3 – 1 Rome
The Rossoneri continue to dream of Serie A: they defeated José Mourinho’s Roma 3-1, placing themselves one point behind Inter, neighbors and leaders. The ‘Nerazzurri’ have a game less than those of Stefano Pioli after postponing their meeting yesterday against Bologna.
The match began with a penalty by Tammy Abraham, reviewed by VAR, scored by Olivier Giroud. The 2-0 was the work of Junior Messias: Giroud had fired, the ball bounced off the post and the Brazilian nationalized Italian scored a goal.

Abraham himself was the one who cut the gap, but it was of little use because Mike Maignan stopped each of his options. The expulsion of Rick Karsdorp broke a Roman team that Rafa Leao crushed with his speed: the forward scored 3-1 and then caused a penalty that ended in the red to Gianluca Mancini. Rui Patrício stopped Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s shot in the 94th minute.
