Serie A Football Results – Napoli Earned a 1-0 Home Win over Sampdoria

Serie A Football Results – Napoli Earned a 1-0 Home Win over Sampdoria

Among other of last night’s Serie A football results, Napoli earned a 1-0 home win over Sampdoria on Sunday. And it was an acrobatic Andrea Petagna effort that kept Luciano Spalletti’s side in the hunt for the Italian title. This goal, and subsequent 1-0 victory in yesterday’s home football match, also end the hosts’ three-match losing run at home.

This was a welcome victory for the Neapolitans after a run of one win in their last six league outings. It is also important for coming after three straight league defeats at home.

The result left Napoli third with 43 points, which is still five behind leaders AC Milan. On the other hand, Samp are in the 15th place on the Serie A table with 20 points.

Italian striker Andrea Petagna guided a volley into the top corner after 43 minutes. That was when the hosts finally made their pressure count.

Juan Jesus delivered a headed goal which a subsequent VAR review ruled out for being offside.

Emil Audero was called into action to deny an Amir Rrahmani strike and Faouzi Ghoulam free kick before Petagna’s opener.

Napoli captain Lorenzo Insigne, meanwhile, limped off after half an hour. He was pulling up from a sprint with an apparent groin problem.

Insigne agreed to a deal to join Toronto FC at the end of the season on Friday (football transfer news).
