Napoli inflamed by being held to a draw by Torino at home

Naples, Beritasatu.com – Napoli were frustrated with a 1-1 draw at home, the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, against Torino, in the Italian Serie A League, Saturday (9/3/2024) early morning WIB.

Home player Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who took a 1-0 lead in the 61st minute, was denied again with a goal from a kick overheads which was done by substitute Antonio Sanabria three minutes later.

The draw means last season's reigning Serie A champions Napoli remain seventh with 44 points, seven points behind fourth-placed Bologna, and their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League are fading.

Kvaratskhelia scored his 10th Serie A goal of the season when he cleverly met Mario Rui's cross.

But three minutes later Sanabria equalized with an overhead kick, just a minute after entering the field. He shot the ball into the top of the goal which Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret couldn't block.

The result was frustrating for the hosts and especially their striker Kvaratskhelia who had several chances to secure a third straight win for his side.

He almost broke the deadlock early in the first half when he found space inside the box, but goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic made a superb save to deny the Georgian.

Just before halftime, Milinkovic-Savic made a save on the goal line to stop Kvaratskhelia's header.

Napoli dominated possession, but Torino were solid at the back and Kvaratskhelia was thwarted again when his stoppage-time effort was parried away by Milinkovic-Savic.

Torino, who are without their suspended coach Ivan Juric, are in 10th place with 38 points.
