Fabian strike the difference between Napoli and Inter

kriralok desk:

Along-range Fabian Ruiz goal was enough to give Napoli a 1-0 win over Inter in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final tie.Neither side were particularly effective, but a second goal of the season for Fabian was enough for Gennaro Gattuso’s men, with the second leg to be played on March 5 at the Stadio San Paolo.In an opening half devoid of chances, it was Marcelo Brozovic and Lautaro Martinez who went closest, though their weak shots from distance were gathered easily by David Ospina.Lautaro saw a header sail over the bar, then just before the break Daniele Padelli made a good save from Piotr Zielinski, who found himself on goal.Fabian broke the deadlock three minutes before the hour when he played a nice one-two with Giovanni Di Lorenzo on the edge of the Inter penalty area before curling a brilliant effort past Daniele Padelli.As Inter went looking for an equaliser, there was a goalmouth scramble following Lautaro’s low cross into the box, but Romelu Lukaku and the Napoli defence were unable to get control of the ball and Ospina gathered at the near post.Christian Eriksen had a rasping drive pushed wide by Ospina, with the Chilean denying Danilo D’Ambrosio at the death.
