Napoli's Serie A title hopes take hit with draw at Sassoulo

01/04/2018

Napoli missed the chance to temporarily go top of the table ahead of Juventus' game as they were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Sassoulo.

The home side went ahead midway through the first half when Matteo Politano volleyed in the rebound after Federico Peluso had struck the post.

And Napoli did not level until 10 minutes from time when Mario Rui's cross came to the back post and was turned home by Sassuolo's Rogerio, who was under pressure from Jose Callejon.
