Napoli-PSG 1-1, goal: Bernat 46 'and Insigne (penalty) 61'

    ( here ) Buffon suffocated by the whistles of Napoli fans

It ends with another draw the return match between Napoli and Psg, and the 1-1 maintains the maximum balance in a group in which the last two days can really happen. For now, given the fall of Liverpool in Belgrade, the team of Ancelotti is the first equal with the British but with the advantage of the victory over the English at San Paolo.

The result against the Parisians is all in all right even if there remains the doubt of what could have happened if Napoli had had for all 90 'the courage and the ardor put on display in the first 20' of the second half, when there was recover from the disadvantage. In any case, the rigor of Insigne that fixes the 1-1 keeps at a distance the squadron of Neymar and Mbappè, who is pursuing only one gulf.

Ancelotti lines the same formation sent to the Park of the Princes, contrary to what Touchel does that also following the return of Thiago Silva in defense and the absence of Cavani forced attack, deployed a 4-3-3 with Di Maria , Neymar and Mbappè who constantly exchange the offensive positions to not give certain points of reference to the blue defenders.

The Napoli suffers on the left side for the continuous and annoying presence in the offensive phase of Meunier that Ruiz can not counter almost never when the outside of the French proposes to suggest passages to the comrades and to animate the attacks. But the real thorn in the side of the blues is Neymar who is constantly taking the ball on the trocar and aims at full speed towards the door putting every time in great difficulty the defense of Naples.

Ancelotti's team is too contracted and afraid of leaving too much space for the PSG offensive riders. Compared to the first game in which Napoli had the absolute dominance of the game, the situation is reversed. It is the French who play the game and Napoli is almost forced to act remittance, focusing on quick exchanges of the ball between his attackers. The goal of the advantage of the Parisians arrives while waiting at any moment the final whistle of the first half by the referee that assigns 1 'recovery and prolongs a few seconds until the action of the PSG completes in the goal of Bernat, served in the small area from a low shot of Mbappè.

Ancelotti protests at the end of the match with Kuipers, but the disadvantage remains. In the second half Napoli starts at full speed and requires all the skill of Buffon in the first 5 'to foil two conclusions of Mertens. The aggression of the Azzurri is impressive and also Callejon, again Mertens and Ruiz graze the equalizer.

The 1-1 still arrives at 17 'with a penalty kick transformed by Insigne, after that Callejon had been knocked down by Buffon and Thiago Silva. The fury of Naples calms down and the race returns to be more balanced.

The substitutions break the rhythm of the match but in substance they change little. In the end the Parisians are dangerous only once with an odd conclusion of Mbappè. For the qualification to the second round the verdict is postponed to the next races.

Inter-Barcelona 1-1, goals: Malcom 83 'and Icardi 86'

Heart of captain and heart from Inter. Mauro Icardi stops the Barcelona with a goal of his, robbery, in the final, straightening an evening that was bad for the Nerazzurri, under a goal a few minutes from the triple whistle. To punish Spalletti's team was Malcom, who could have put on Inter's shirt for a game of destiny.

But Icardi and his companions, a decisive Handanovic on all, are hard to die: they went for the fourth time at a disadvantage in this Champions League, they found the third comeback, snatching a draw that is almost a victory. Merit also of a shiny Spalletti, able to spot the changes and recover a game that seemed now lost. Despite the success of Tottenham on PSV, Inter remains mistress of his own destiny: for the second round, in 20 days in London against Spurs, a draw can be fine.

Under a pouring rain and pushed by the charge of the 74 thousand San Siro, Inter did not show his best face. The dribbling and frantic pressing of Barcelona, ​​even without Messi sent into the stands, has created enormous difficulties for Spalletti's team, in difficulty in overcoming the aggressiveness of the opponents, losing himself in a huge amount of technical errors. The first half turned into a shot at the target, with the blaugrana who tried in every way to unlock the result.

They did not succeed for a bit 'of imprecision, but at 45' the score spoke of 13 shots attempted against only two of the Nerazzurri. The most important occasions have happened to Suarez, who was not able to hit the door, while the best Skriniar was used to remove the chestnuts from the fire on a cross shot by Sergi Roberto. Spalletti's team was too precipitous and fearful, also because his big names, Nainggolan above all, struggled. Yet the opportunities to hurt on the break were not lacking, especially on the left where Perisic could often sink: at 19 'low cross for Asamoah, which however shoots high from inside the area.

Too little, because there were too many mistakes in the dribble of the owners. Scion that has not changed in the second half, the Barcelona that attacks and is always scary, the Inter that tries in restart without being able to exploit the opportunities. And when the Nerazzurri are discovered, the blaugrana are bad. Rakitic from two steps grace Handanovic, on the rejected Suarez bags but the ball was already finished outside. At the moment of greatest difficulty, Spalletti draws from the bench the card Borja Valero, a move that awakens the team: Politano would even have the ball to the advantage but his header goes off slightly, then the outside wastes another opportunity on the counterattack.

On the other hand, Valverde relaunches Malcom, the Brazilian that Inter had also followed last summer. Just him on the counterattack finds the southpaw who unlocks the result. It seems the knockout, but Inter reacts as a great team, dragged by the usual Icardi: on a beat and replies tow the ball back to the door, resists a charge and with the right makes 1-1, the fourth goal in four games European.

The last assault blaugrana ends with a stalemate, and Inter snatches a fundamental draw to continue his run in the Champions League. Nothing is compromised, the appointment with destiny is in London.
