Napoli vs. Roma (2-2): Player Ratings

Man of the Match: Kvaratskhelia (7): Without a doubt the most active player for Napoli, initiating many of their best attacking moves. He also wins the penalty that briefly puts Napoli in the lead in a tightly contested match. Even though Napoli doesn’t clinch the win, he’s the one who keeps their hopes alive till the end.

Napoli (4-3-3)

Meret (5.5): Steps up whenever called upon and deflects several attempts from Roma. However, he can’t do much about the two goals conceded.

Di Lorenzo (6): Does a solid defensive job on his flank and offers some promising attacking options.

Rrahmani (6): Solid and attentive, avoids taking big risks tonight. Can’t do much to prevent Roma’s comeback.

Juan Jesus (5): Despite a promising start and some interesting offensive contributions, he’s caught off guard by Azmoun and concedes the penalty that allows Roma to open the scoring.

Olivera (6.5): Starts the game on a shaky note with some marking errors, but his unexpected goal levels the score for Napoli.

Anguissa (6): Misses a big chance early in the game but provides a strong presence in midfield.

Lobotka (6.5): Puts in a huge shift in midfield, keeping Napoli on par with Roma in a perfectly balanced match.

Cajuste (5): Slightly below par compared to his teammates, lacking the solidity needed in midfield. Traore replaces him in the 69th minute, later substituted by Ostigaard.

Politano (6): Shows promise in the attacking phase, often releasing his teammates into space, though they struggle to capitalize. Ngonge replaces him in the 70th minute.

Osimhen (6): Tightly marked by Ndicka, limiting his impact, but he keeps pushing forward and contributes significantly to Napoli’s attacking play. Keeps his cool to convert the penalty.

Kvaratskhelia (7): Raspadori comes on for him in the 89th minute.

Roma (4-3-2-1)

Svilar (7): He’s everywhere, all the time. If Roma believed till the end, it’s largely thanks to their goalkeeper who works wonders.

Kristensen (5): Starts the game well but makes a few errors compared to more precise teammates. Baldanzi replaces him in the 85th minute.

Mancini (6): Solid and focused, he avoids some dangerous situations and forces Napoli to try their luck from distance.

Spinazzola (6): He seriously troubles Napoli in the early stages of the game but then slows down a bit.

Bove (5.5): Starts the game well but struggles after a while to contain Kvaratskhelia. He’s replaced by Sanches in the 69th minute.

Cristante (5.5): Works quite well in the first half and shows what he’s capable of, but eventually struggles against a Napoli team that fights back.

Pellegrini (5.5): Like his teammates, his excellent start doesn’t match the rest of the game. He also fades as the game progresses.

Dybala (5.5): His creativity is a boost for Roma, but it’s not enough to make the difference.

El Shaarawy (4.5): He struggles to trouble Calzona’s men, who manage to counter his attacks quite comfortably. Angelino replaces him in the 61st minute.

Azmoun (5): He wins the penalty that allows Roma to open the scoring, but then doesn’t contribute much. Abraham takes his place in the 69th minute and scores the equalizer.
