Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen’s late equalizer helped Napoli scrape a point in a 1-1 draw with Cagliari in Serie A on Monday.
After a goalless first half, Cagliari went ahead in the 58th minute when Gaston Pereiro’s long shot bounced in front of goalkeeper David Ospina and went into the net.
In a bid for a victory, Napoli threw on Osimhen and the change worked wonders in the 87th minute, when Mario Rui rolled across from the left and Osimhen steered a header in.
Napoli now ranks third with 54 points, level with Inter Milan who has a game in hand.
Elsewhere, Marko Arnautovic’s brace helped Bologna register a 2-1 comeback victory over Spezia.
