Napoli go clear 
as Juventus lose

Napoli went clear at the top of the Serie A table after defeating Roma 1-0, as defending champions Juventus lost 2-1 to Lazio, their first home defeat since August 2015.

Douglas Costa had given Juventus a 23rd-minute lead, but Ciro Immobile turned the tables for Lazio with a second-half brace, as Paulo Dybala missed a late penalty for the Turin giants.

At Rome's Olympic Stadium, Lorenzo Insigne's early goal helped Napoli secure their eighth win in as many games. The Naples side have a five-point lead over Inter Milan, who met AC Milan this morning. - WIRE SERVICES
