Napoli have taken the lead in Serie A with a big win over Lazio. The Naples club won 4-0 at home and now has three points more than AC Milan that lost 1-3 to Sassuolo earlier in the day.
Napoli, who again played in shirts with the image of Diego Maradona, who died last year, quickly scored the opening goal against Lazio. Piotr Zielinski scored in the 7th minute. Three minutes later, Dries Mertens made it 2-0 with a nice play and the Belgian attacker made it 3-0 within half an hour.
In the second half, the victory was no longer in danger for Napoli, who had unveiled a statue of Maradona prior to the game. Napoli had invited many former teammates of the Argentinian and FIFA president Gianni Infantino to the game. Fabián Ruiz determined the final score in the final phase with Napoli’s fourth goal.
