A winning goal by Lautaro Martinez, at the last attack of an exciting match, ends a nerve-wracking match. 

Luciano Spalletti’s Inter emerged victorious from the postponement of the Serie A Boxing Day by overcoming Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli 1-0, thanks to El Toro’s goal in the 92nd minute from an assist by Baldé Keita

A game that after a sparkling first half, lives a less enthusiastic and more condensed second half filled with errors. An outstanding display from Kalidou Koulibaly ended with a red card in the last 10 minutes of the match after committing a foul on Matteo Politano

Despite only being 10 players on the pitch, Napoli still managed to show glimpses of danger and notably Piotr Zielinski‘s chance on in which Kwadwo Asamoah clears it off the line. 

Shortly after, the assist from Keita arrived and Icardi let it pass through to find Lautaro who places it on the right corner of Alex Meret.

The match ended badly as altercations between Keita Balde, Insigne and Rui escalated which resulted in the expulsion of Lorenzo Insigne. Mario Rui was also carded for pushing Lautaro Martinez.
