Roma held firm against Napoli in a gripping Sun derby clash this Sunday, with Evan Ndicka emerging as the linchpin in both attack and defense during Serie A’s 34th matchday.

Despite conceding an early goal from a penalty converted by Victor Osimhen, Roma, buoyed by the indomitable presence of Evan Ndicka, mustered a late response (88th minute) against Napoli.

The encounter witnessed a pulsating Nigeria-Ivory Coast duel, culminating in a hard-fought 2-2 draw, with Tammy Abraham capitalizing on a precise header from the Ivorian defender.

Ndicka’s deft touch redirected the ball to the awaiting English attacker, sealing Roma’s fightback.

For Evan Ndicka, the 2023 African champion, this fixture served as a remarkable redemption following his recent setback against Udinese.

Marking his return to the starting lineup since that encounter, Ndicka showcased a resurgence in form, much to the delight of his teammates.

Demonstrating tenacity in defense, he thwarted Napoli’s advances while simultaneously showcasing his attacking prowess, notching up his third assist of the Serie A campaign in just 28 appearances for the 24-year-old defender from Ivory Coast.

Ndicka’s performance epitomized resilience and tactical astuteness, as he seamlessly transitioned from defensive duties to orchestrating Roma’s attacking forays.

His commanding presence was pivotal in neutralizing Napoli’s threats while instilling confidence within the Roma ranks.

As the dust settles on the Sun derby spectacle, Evan Ndicka’s commanding display stands as a testament to his enduring quality, underscoring his indispensable role in Roma’s pursuit of Serie A glory.
