Insignia was able to score a goal like Maradona from the free kick because all football lovers know that Maradona was a player with best free kick skill.
What a clever free kick of Insignia. He did it because the position of the goalkeeper and the positioning of the two-man wall just go over the top Mirante's got to get his position nearer the middle other goal. He's too far to the far post and he can't get back across. Then, there was Zielinski continue makes his darting run and has to check back. And Mertens was through he's on side super save.
Brian Cristante from AS Roma sent an effort wide on target after getting the ball from his teammate, Rick Karsdorp. SSC Napoli built the attack through Piotr Zielinski and he worked very well last night with Insignia. Both of players Insignia became the key player of Napoli last night.

Dries Martens scored the third goal of Napoli at 81”. The goal happened because of the shooting of Eijis Elmas cannot anticipated well by Antonio Mirante. At 86’, Matteo Politano became a player to help Napoli to complete their party for Diego Maradona because of his goal.
Politano still rounding the keeper and rounding off the victory in style well it's been a thoroughly emphatic win for Napoli on their special night tonight and Politano went around the goalkeeper on this poignant evening in the final analysis it simply meant more for Napoli.
