Naples wins 1-0 in Turin despite Incine’s penalty miss



Naples missed the penalty but won 1-0 in Turin and finished third in Serie A on Saturday.

Fabian Ruiz scored in the second half after Lorenzo Insigne saved another spot kick.

Naples beat fourth-placed Juventus, who lost 2-1 on Friday, four points, following two slow goals from the home team.

He is 5 points behind league leader Inter Milan and is aiming for the title in the remaining two games.

When Turin defender Armando Izzo defeated Dries Mertens in the area, Naples had a great chance to break the hourmark deadlock, but Incine’s penalty was saved.

This is the fourth time Incine has failed to convert a penalty this season.

On the 73rd, visitors stole the lead when Lewis stole the ball from Tommaso Pobega in the middle of Turin’s half and wandered into the area before drilling a hole in the lower left corner.

European battle

Lazio has increased his chances of entering Europe with a 2-0 victory at Sampdoria, which was not yet safe from his demotion.

Patrick’s first Serie A goal was shortly before halftime and Luis Alberto doubled his lead after the break.

Sampdoria remained five points away from the drop zone prior to the rest of the weekend’s match.

Sassuolo drew 1-1 with Udinese at home.
