Who was Man Of The Match? Frank Zambo Anguissa
The big match between AS Roma and Napoli was even as expected. Both sides, opted for the same formation, had to share spoils in a goalless draw. Neither side could complain about it as both were unable to capitalize on their chances. Jose Mourinho kept his words by deploying the same starting XI as the match in Turin, despite losing to Juventus last weekend.
Bryan Cristante and Co were more in favour of crossing and replying on long distance shots in their attempts to score while Luciano Spalletti’s men opted for relying on ball possession and individual skills. They did have one golden opportunity to open the scoring through Victor Osimhen but only for the ball to hit the goal frame. This result was enough for Napoli to reclaim the top of the table, in spite of collecting the same points as AC Milan, while Giallorossi is still stuck on the fourth. That is three games without a win for them.
The man of the match in this tight clash was Cameroonian midfielder Frank Zambo Anguissa. He contributed in the attacking build-up as well as preventing Il Partenopei from concession by clearing the ball in the back line twice and making four tackles.
Meanwhile, from the opposition side, Bryan Cristante was rated the highest in this game. As a defensive midfielder, the 26-year old Italian international was kept busy tackling, intercepting and making clearances throughout the game.
