Although De Wit rarely showed up at the point of the attack. Napoli pushed AZ far back in the first half, so that the match mainly took place in the Alkmaar half. A goal by Victor Osimhen was disallowed due to offside, Bruno Martins Indi prevented a hit by former PSV player Hirving Lozano and a shot from another former PSV player, Dries Mertens, just skimmed past the post.
AZ mainly had to hope for the loss of the Neapolitans, to break out quickly themselves. Sugawara had the chance once, but his shot sailed wide. Despite the pressure from Napoli, AZ took the break without damage.
In the second half, the moment was there for De Wit. In the 57th minute he got the ball after a nice attack on a silver platter by right back Jonas Svensson, who put the ball back to De Wit who was running in: 1-0. Thus AZ took the lead against the proportions.
Final offensive Napoli
In the remainder of the match, the Alkmaarders held their ground. Napoli attacked to your heart’s content, but rarely came up with played-out opportunities. Attacker Lorenzo Insigne was brought in, but the Italian international was also unable to find the target.
