In the 40th minute of the first half, Napoli, which had been driven continuously, scored the opening goal with Osimen’s penetration into the back space. After Stanislav Robotka seized the ball, he immediately connected it with a penetrating pass toward the front, and Rossano, who ran on the side, passed it to Osimen in front of the goal. Osimen, who got ahead of the defender with his quick feet, shook the net first with a push.
Kvarachhelia, who received a pass in the penalty area in the 20th minute of the second half, created a shooting opportunity for DiLorenzo, who jumped into the penalty area with his heel, and DiLorenzo finished it with his left foot and wedged it.
