Osimhen Impressive But Napoli Miss Chance To Go Top After Home Draw Vs Inter


Victor Osimhen was in inspiring form but it was not enough as Serie A leaders Inter Milan forced Napoli to a 1-1 draw away on Saturday.

The draw means Inter stay top on 54 points, just one point ahead of second-placed Napoli.

Piotr Zielinski almost made it 2-0 on 12 minutes but his curler smashed the outside of the post from the edge of the area.

Inter equalised within 30 seconds of the restart thanks to Edin Dzeko whose header on a Lautaro Martinez cross was scuffed, but it bounced off Di Lorenzo’s shin and the Bosnian reacted quickly…
