Last gasp winner keeps Napoli in touch with Juve…just.
A last-gasp goal from substitute Lorenzo Insigne handed Napoli a thrilling victory over Cagliari to keep their faint Serie A title hopes alive.
When Victor Ibarbo edged the Sardinians ahead midway through the first half, it looked like Napoli were finally thwarted in their attempt to catch leaders Juventus over the remaining five matches.
A double salvo from Marek Hamsik and Premier League target Edinson Cavani just after the interval briefly made amends until Cagliari’s Marco Sau made it 2-2 with 20 minutes remaining.
The single point would have left Napoli 10 points shy of Juve before the champions’ evening game against AC Milan – which the Old Lady eventually won 1-0 – and so Insigne dutifully climbed off the bench to salvage all three points at the death.
