Inter 1-1 Napoli: Late goal from Jesus secure one point for Napoli

Last Updated on 19/03/2024 by

As Darmian scored the first goal of the first half, Juan Jesus scored a late headed goal for Napoli to cancel out Darmian’s goal.

The draw was only the third time this season that the Inzaghi team has lost points at home, and it was the first time in any game during the entire season that they have conceded within the final 15 minutes of play.


Following their departures from the Champions League in the middle of the week, both teams returned to play eighty minutes of laborious football on Sunday night, with the final score being well balanced.

The home team had a greater number of opportunities than the away team did in the first half, but neither team had an overwhelming number of such opportunities.

When it finally came, the game-winning goal, which occurred 43 minutes into the match, was meticulously created from a sequence of cross-pitch passes. Matteo Darmian was the reason why the music stopped. A well-chosen cut-back from Alessandro Bastoni was hammered home by the 34-year-old player, who found himself in a position of space in the middle of the field.

In the second half, Napoli had the better of possession, and their perseverance paid off as they scored the game changing goal at the 83 minute.

It came from their seventh corner of the game, which was a controversial one that replays may yet prove should not have been awarded.

However, the fact that it was legitimate was not an excuse for Inter to leave Juan Jesus unmarked at the far post. Matteo Politano’s inswinging set-piece was perfectly placed for Juan Jesus to head home.

As much as they tried to score a game-winning goal, they were only able to get a single point, which is enough to keep their chances of qualifying for the Champions League alive.
