leagueDespite his Europa League goal, Dries Mertens had to do it again tonight with a seat on the bench. Since his injury, our compatriot was allowed to start only once in the Italian league, and today also he had to do it in just five minutes. Napoli got no more than a 1-1 draw with Hellas Verona.
Naples at its best. With 31 out of 33, they lead the position in Italy, although they still have to take on AC Milan. Hellas Verona beat Juventus last week, and also beat Lazio and Roma. So it was important to be careful.
After 13 minutes, the guests from Verona advanced through Simeone, but Di Lorenzo equalized again not so long ago. The match continued. Osimhen still shot at the post, but other than that there was little danger from the goal.
Five minutes before the end, coach Spalletti showed Dries Mertens. Our compatriot scored last week against Legia in the Europa League, but he started again on the bench. Mertens showed enthusiasm and even hit the post with a free kick in extra time, but he also couldn’t avoid a draw. Hellas finished the match with 9 red cards for Besa and Kalinic. With this, Napoli tied for the second time, and Milan can only take the lead soon by beating rival Inter.
