Italy Serie AMilan 1-2 Napoli

Milan 1-2 Napoli

Napoli moves to the top of Serie A after beating Milan 2-1 at San Siro.

After a goalless first half, where Meret denied Giroud with a fantastic save, the visitors took the lead through a penalty from Politano.

After VAR stepped in to give a spot-kick, the Italian took responsibility, with Dest bringing down Kvaratskhelia.

The 29-year-old drove the ball under a frustrated Maignan, who should have done better.

Milan responded well, with Giroud turning in a low cross from Hernandez, but it was Spalletti’s side who took home all three points.

Left out of the starting side, substitute Simeone directed Rui’s cross into the bottom corner to send the away dugout into raptures.
