Fabian Ruiz scored an injury-time winner to help Napoli beat Lazio to go top of the Serie A table after a long time. Lorenzo Insigne put the visitors ahead with a brilliantly hit first-time effort from outside the box. But the home side came back to the game as Pedro levelled the scores with two minutes to go.
Fabian Ruiz score a Stunning Goal to take Napoli to the top
Fabian Ruiz popped up at the end to hammer in from 25 yards and spark mass celebrations. Napoli head coach Luciano Spalletti’s side took advantage of AC Milan and Inter Milan both drawing on Friday to go top of the league table. They now top Serie A by virtue of their head-to-head record with Milan. Defending champions Inter, who are two points behind, have a game in hand.
Napoli’s only two Serie A titles came when Diego Maradona was at the club – in 1987 and 1990. Also in the Sunday Seria A games Tammy Abraham’s 98th-minute goal gave Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma a 1-0 win at Spezia. He has now scored 12 Serie A goals, the most by an English player in a campaign since Gerry Hitchens for Torino in 1962-63.
