Victor Osimhen Rescues Late Draw For Napoli.
Napoli drew 1-1 against Cagliari on Monday thanks to a late header from Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.
With both leaders AC Milan and second-placed Inter Milan surrendering points over the weekend, Napoli had a chance to reclaim the top spot with a win in Sardinia, but they struggled to get going.
The hosts had far more chances throughout the game, with Gaston Pereiro’s second-half shot slipping past Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina to give them a merited 58th-minute lead.
Ospina made two outstanding late saves to keep Napoli in the game, and his efforts were rewarded when Osimhen leapt highest to head home a dramatic equalizer three minutes from time.
The visitors’ undeserved point puts them in third position in the league, although they did narrow the gap to Milan at the top to two points.
Cagliari will be kicking themselves for a number of squandered opportunities during the encounter, as they stay in the relegation zone after dropping two crucial points.
