What a game!
Napoli played very good thanks to a fantastic choice made by their manager. Marko Rog dominated the right flank, pressing very well and helping the build up actions, on the left Insigne nutmegged Rudiger since the first minutes, Koulibaly stopped every ball which passed in his zone.
Useless to express the joy to watch Mertens. The belgian winger - now striker - is living an incredible season. Is the answer, like Alexis with us, to the teams with a proper number nine on attack. He has replaced Milik and probably will bench him until the end of the season.
Roma started to play well when Napoli lost the control of the ball and of the pitch. When Sarri has been sent off and his indications were not clear for his players, Napoli lowered the lines and conceded spaces to Salah and Perotti for the counterattacks.
Spalletti lost the face to face with Sarri because of shocking decisions. Salah out, Rudiger (a CB) on the right against one of the best wingers in Europe and because refused to change the tactic during the game when was clear which Hamsik, Joriginho and Rog were demolishing Strootman, Radja and De Rossi.
Strange and great game.
