Sarri: Napoli just need a bit of luck

Napoli head coach Maurizio Sarri was not happy to see his team held to a 1-1 draw with Milan at Stadio San Paolo on Monday.

Lorenzo Insigne opened to scoring for the home side late in the first half, but Giacomo Bonaventura equalised for the Rossoneri on the stroke of halftime.

The two dropped points prevented the Partenopei from displacing Juventus at the top of the Serie A standings, and makes it three games without a win for the Scudetto hopefulls.

"What were we missing in these three matches? A bit of luck," Sarri told Sky Sport Italia. "We're not very lucky at the moment, but if the team continues to play like this then the results have to come.

"Our game against Juventus was completely different, as there were very few chances for either side. Tonight both teams created opportunities, there are regrets that we ended the first half on level terms, because Milan barely got the ball.

"We got irritable, hit the upright and tried everything with a 4-2-4 that could've been very risky, but this was a night where we had to take a few risks.

"We were facing Milan, not some provincial side, so forcing them to play the entire game in defence was good. We had eight chances to one, yet it ended 1-1."
