The cast of San Paolo took a point from the Rossoneros in a duel that was marked by the European claims of both teams. In addition, the visitors finished with 10 men after Alexis Saelemeakers was sent off on the hour.
Napoli cut Milan’s string of victories by Serie A and tied 2-2 with the ‘rossoneros’ for date 32 of the Italian championship in a key duel for European positions.
Although the Neapolitans dominated the first 15 minutes with three clear chances, the Lombards went ahead with a goal from Theo Hernández at 20 ′ with a powerful left-footed shot.
But the locals managed to match the fight with a goal from Di Lorenzo at 34 ′ and Dries Mertens at 60 ′ turned the figures in favor of Gennaro Gattusso.
The joy did not last as long for those of San Paolo, since a penalty by Franck Kessie at 71 ′ put the final 2-2 between both teams that are still in Europa League positions.
