A late Victor Osimhen header secured a point for Napoli at the Sardegna Arena, Cagliari.
The home side who have only recorded a victory in the Serie A this year, 2022, started the game on the front foot, settling into the match quicker and having the majority of the early possession. They had a few chances in the first half before the Partenopei finally woke up and had a few of their own.
Luciano Spalleti’s men found themselves 1-0 down after a second half goal from Gaston Pereiro in the 58th minute. The Uruguayen shot was palmed into the net by Napoli’s shot stopper David Ospina.
Napoli reacted well and stayed calm as they pushed for an equaliser. Spaletti turned to his €68 million forward who started from the bench to rescue them, and the 23-year-old delivered.
With three minutes of action left to play in regular time, Osimhen headed home a wonderful cross from Mario Rui to tie things up, securing an important point for the visitors.
Victor Osimhen has now scored 11 goals in the Seria A this season.
