Kim Min-jae, the ‘monster defender’, played a goalless defense, but his team, Napoli, failed to score a goal against a lower-tier team in danger of relegation and drew.

However, there is no big problem in lifting the championship trophy. Napoli lifts the championship trophy on its own after 33 years by adding 11 points from the remaining 8 games.
On the 19th, ahead of the second leg of the UCL quarterfinals with AC Milan, Napoli made a large number of bench members as starters on this day to manage the condition of the main players. However, Kim Min-jae was included in the starting list that day because he could not play in the second game against AC Milan due to the accumulation of warnings. In addition to Kim Min-jae, Andre Frank Jambo Anguisa and Giovanni Di Lorenzo were the existing main members.
Napoli dominated the game enough to record 80% to 20% of ball possession and 10 to 5 shooting numbers. However, it was a frustrating game with only one effective shot. As the game was not resolved, Napoli put in a series of key strikers such as Hvica Kvarachhelia, Stanislav Robotka, and Victor Osimen from the middle of the second half, but were unable to open the opponent’s goal.
Osimen, who is leading the score in Serie A and is receiving a love call from a big club, hit a powerful right-footed shot in the 37th minute of the second half, but missed the chance to score after hitting the crossbar.
