Napoli were active in the UEFA Europa League today as they welcomed Spartak Moscow to the Diego Armanda Maradona Stadium on Thursday evening. The Blues failed to continue with winning ways as they were condemned to a disappointing 3-2 defeat by Spartak Moscow despite having the home advantage.
Napoli got the first goal of the match at the start of the first half as Eljif Elmas opened the scoring in the first minute with a brilliant effort. The Home side were reduced to 10 men in the 29th minute of the game as Mario Rui was sent off for a harsh foul in the match. Spartak Moscow benefitted from this as they came from behind to net three lovely goals in the match thanks to efforts from Quincy Promes(Brace) and Mikhail Ignatov.
Victor Osimhen got a goal back for Napoli in the 90+7 minute of the game as he found the back of the net to make the final scoreline 3-2 in favour of the Visitors.
Napoli were without Victor Osimhen in the first half as they struggled to convert their chances against Spartak Moscow. The Nigerian international came on in the second half and still showed the stuff he is made off as he scored a late goal for Napoli. Victor Osimhen is becoming a really important player for Napoli and his absence might really affect the club this season. The 22-year-old has been influential in Napoli's various wins this season contributing greatly to their performance in all competitions. Napoli might drop in performance if the Nigerian International didn't show up during matches.
