Napoli Player Ratings vs Inter: Di Lorenzo Stunner Lights Up the Maradona

At the Maradona Stadium in Naples, crowned Italian champions Napoli hosted Inter in the 36th Round of Serie A. Roberto Gagliardini’s chaotic first half left the Nerazzurri with a man down, and the Partenopei found a breakthrough in the second period courtesy of Zambo-Anguissa. Surprisingly, Romelu Lukaku dragged the visitors back with an unexpected equalizer, but Giovanni Di Lorenzo restored his side’s lead with a jaw-dropping scorcher, while Gianluca Gaetano sealed the win with a third goal. So here are our player ratings for Napoli who beat 10-man Inter in a 3-1 result.

Napoli (4-3-3)

Alex Meret – 5.5

The Italian custodian didn’t have much to do aside from picking up the ball from his own net. Perhaps he could have done better to alert Juan Jesus to Lukaku’s danger.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo – 8

A supreme display from the Napoli captain who made vital contributions at the back before scoring a sensational scorcher with his weaker left foot.

Amir Rrahmani – 6.5

An impressive display at the back from the towering Kosovan who won all aerial duels.

Kim Min-jae – 6.5

A commanding display in defense from the former Fenerbahce man who led the anti-Lukaku coalition. Napoli still had a clean sheet when he left the pitch.

Mathias Olivera – 5.5

The Uruguayan hasn’t been able to replicate Mario Rui’s pin-point crosses from the left flank. Denzel Dumfries gave him some trouble following his introduction.

André-Frank Zambo Anguissa – 7.5

After squandering one or two chances in the first half, the Cameroonian managed to beat his compatriot André Onana with an exquisite finish. He was also credited with the assist for Di Lorenzo’s stunner.

Stanislav Lobotka – 6.5

Another convincing display from the former Celta Vigo man who at times provided assistance for the centre-backs in their battle against Lukaku. Controlled the tempo in the middle of the park.

Piotr Zielinski – 6.5

The Pole provided a smart assist for the opener and his passing was top-notch. But lost his footing on a swift counter-attack that should have been a goal for Napoli.

Eljif Elmas – 6.5

A positive outing from the versatile North Macedonian who mainly operated on the right wing. Linked up with his teammates, picking up Osimhen with an inviting cross while also contributing to the opener.

Victor Osimhen – 5.5

The Nigerian was furious after being hauled off the pitch, but in Luciano Spalletti’s defense, the striker wasn’t enjoying his best evening. His touch let him down on some occasions and only threatened Onana with one feeble header.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia – 6.5

Despite the lack of spaces, the Georgian winger still managed to dribble his way into the box at times. Tested Onana with a wonderful curler towards the far post, but in the end, he couldn’t contribute to a goal.


Giacomo Raspadori – 5.5

The former Sassuolo man added some energy to the final third but couldn’t maintain his composure when he was put through on goal.

Giovanni Simeone – 6

The Argentine saw his goal disallowed for an earlier foul on Zielinski. He then scuffed his rebound wide, but eventually provided the assist for Gaetano’s goal.

Juan Jesus – 5

The Brazilian allowed Lukaku to sneak behind him for the equalizer, but his clearance led to the third Napoli goal.

Matteo Politano – 6

The former Inter man provided some flair to the right wing.

Gianluca Gaetano – 6.5

A night to remember for the Napoli youth product who opened his account for the club with an unexpected last-gasp goal.
