Mertens ends goal drought as Serie A leaders Napoli extend lead

Dries Mertens ended a goal drought as he scored in a 1-0 win over Atalanta to stretch Napoli's advantage in Serie A to four points last night.

Before this, the Belgian had gone 908 minutes without a goal in Serie A.

The league leaders kicked off the weekend action as the Italian league resumed after a two-week break and grabbed the chance to widen the gap on Juventus, who play Genoa tomorrow morning (Singapore time). - AFP
