Morata and Fabián shine in the triumphs of Juve and Naples

The former athlete scored a goal in the Bianconeri 3-1 with Genoa, and the midfielder opened the can in the Neapolitan triumph with Sampdoria. The fight for the Champions is still red hot.


After the direct confrontation last Wednesday that saw the Bianconeri triumph, Juventus and Napoli today starred in victories that leave the fight for the Champions red hot. Pirlo's men, against Genoa, finished the job in just 20 minutes. In minute 4, after a great play, Cuadrado crossed for Kulusevski, who opened the can adding his fourth goal in this league. During the Rossoblú's attempted reaction, Chiesa activated a counterattack, his shot was neutralized by Perin, Cristiano hit the post in the rebound and, finally, Morata pushed the ball between sticks.

Scamacca, with a great header after a corner from Rovella, cut the gap and complicated the Juventine afternoon, but McKennie reassured his team with the 3-1 counterattack in 70 '. With this victory, Juve maintained their three-point lead over Napoli, who beat Sampdoria at home and are now fourth, awaiting tonight's Fiorentina-Atalanta.

Gattuso's team started well and broke the game in the first half, when Fabian, once again among the best, finished with a great left-foot from the edge of the area, a beautiful combination with Osimhen and Zielinski. The Nigerian, already fit and decisive, after a goal disallowed by Thorsby for a foul on Koulibaly, ended the contest with a low right hand on 87 ', receiving a vertical pass from Mertens. The partenopei, in the last eight days, added six wins, a draw and a defeat. His crisis is already a memory.
