Serie A Review: Zelinski Stars As Napoli Recover From Two Goals To Beat Milan

Polish international midfielder Piotr Zelinski was the hero for Napoli as he played a prominent role to help his side recover from two goals down to beat AC Milan 3-2 in a week 2 Italian Serie A clash at the Stadio San Paolo on Saturday night.

Giacomo Bonaventura opened the scoring for the visitors on 15 minutes and that was how it stayed until the 49th minute when Italian right-back Davide Calabria added a second goal for the seven-time European champions thus paving the way for the Zelinski show.

The 24-year-old pulled one back four minutes after Calabria’s goal before he scored the equaliser midway into the second half.

Belgian substitute Dries Mertens then produced the winning goal for the home side ten minutes from time to hand Napoli all three points and maintain their perfect start to the season.

The win takes Carlo Ancelotti’s side level on points with league leaders Juventus (six) after two matches.

Juventus had earlier beaten Lazio 2-0 courtesy goals from Miralem Pjanic and Mario Mandzukic on Saturday to move to the top of the table.
