What a player “Chucky” is! It is not news anymore but Hirving Lozano (MEX) is still arguably the most important player for Napoli
Today he helped Napoli secure the win against Empoli with a pass and goal in the Octo-Finals of the Coppa Italia.
It was a good match. Empoli plays in Serie B but is the leader and playing well. They came out to give a great match and cause problems against Napoli.
The first goal happened after a great play by Lozano, who beat a defender and gave a very difficult pass with the external part of his foot, so that Giovanni Di Lorenzo (ITA) would simply push it for the goal, at 18′.
Lozano also scored a great goal at 38′. He shot from outside the box to score the draw when Empoli had already tied the game.
Nedim Bajrami (SUI) was the author of two great goals from literal long shots by Empoli, one at 33′ and another at 68′.
The second half moved a lot. Andrea Petagna (ITA) score the 3-2 at 76′. Fabián Ruiz Peña (ESP) had a very good shot from outside the box at 84′ but it hit the post.
Empoli kept on pressing on but Napoli managed to keep the score intact and took the match by 3-1.
