Osimhen scores late for Napoli in draw at Cagliari

Victor Osimhen of Napoli scores his goal of 1-1 during the Serie A match between Cagliari Calcio and SSC Napoli at Sardegna Arena on February 21, 2022 in Cagliari, Italy.


Substitute Victor Osimhen headed in a late equalizer and Napoli drew at relegation-threatened Cagliari 1-1 on Monday to move within two points of the Serie A lead.

Cagliari dominated for long periods before Osimhen redirected a long cross from Mario Rui in the 87th minute.

Gaston Pereiro put Cagliari ahead near the hour mark with a long, bouncing shot, after which the Sardinian club had numerous chances to add to its lead.

Napoli moved level with second-placed Inter Milan — which has a game in hand — two points behind leader AC Milan.

Cagliari remained in the drop zone.
