A late goal from Juan Jesus ensured the Azzurri came away with a draw against top-of-the-table Inter on Sunday night.

Inter tested Napoli’s defence throughout the first half and forced Alex Meret to make a couple of great saves. The Azzurri had few chances in the first 45 minutes, and it was the Nerazzurri to open the scoring just before the break with a shot from Matteo Darmian.

Napoli responded in the 81st minute to level the score. Giacomo Raspadori’s corner kick found its way to an unmarked Juan Jesus, who steered it in at the back post.
