With Juventus 11 points clear atop Serie A, Napoli were in dire need of victory over Cagliari to keep some kind of pressure on the Serie A leaders, and it was Arkadiusz Milik who provided a late moment of inspiration.
Time was almost over when the 24-year-old Pole stepped up on the edge of the box and curled a brilliant freekick up and over the wall, and away from Alessio Cragno’s outstretched arms in the 91st minute. A true thing of beauty.
That made it three matches in a row in which Milik has hit the back of the net, four goals coming in total and hit first ever from a direct freekick.
Napoli have proved to be a team that doesn’t give up this season, scoring 12 goals in the last 15 minutes of matches, more than any other side. And if Juventus are to be beaten to the Serie A title, the Partenopei will need to continue that never say die spirit.
