The analysis

To the last breath… Napoli grabs three important points at the end of injury time. The match, just like Mazzarri said at the press conference,  was a tough one. Cagliari started with a 4 3 3 with Thiago Riberio and Ibarbo wide to open up Napoli defense. The first 15′ aren’t particularly exiting apart from a series of spectacular passes from Hamsik and  Pandev but the Macedonian shoot goes out. Then, Cagliari takes the lead. Ibarbo regains the ball just outside the box and shoots with a powerful shoot gives Cagliari the lead. Napoli tries to find the equalizer and goes quite close with Cavani and Dzemaili, but with no luck. On the other hand Cagliari is very dangerous with its counter attack. At the end of the first half, Napoli claims a penalty for a foul on Cavani, but the referee has a different opinion and warns Cavani. Only after two minutes in the second half Napoli equalizes. Zuniga from a free kick gives the ball to Hamsik, whose shoot is deflected by Astori and goes in the net. The ref wasn’t entirely sure who deflected the ball as Cavani was offside and after almost two minutes talking with the penalty area ref awarded the goal. Napoli finds the confidence again and impelled by the supporters takes the lead with Cavani. The joy only lasts 7′ as Cagliari finds the equalizer with a spectacular goal of Sau. Mazzarri puts in another striker, Insigne, who takes the place of Dzemaili, a midfielder, to keep Cagliari under pressure. Both sides go close to score again but is Napoli that finds the victory with Insigne with a great shoot from outside the penalty area, at the last breath of the match… The Champions League is at Mazzarri’s fingertips as Ac Milan had been beaten by Juventus tonight. Seven points clear on Ac Milan with five matches to go. We couldn’t have hoped for a better Sunday evening…
