Napoli 1-2 Lazio: Goals, highlights and report – Serie A 2023/24

Lazio under Maurizio Sarri appear to have Napoli's number. The Aquile will head back to Rome with all three points after they beat the champions at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Matchday 3 for their first win of the season.


Lazio earned their first points and first win of the 2023/24 Serie A season on Matchday 3. Maurizio Sarri‘s side defeated reigning champions Napoli 2-1 at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

The Partenopei dominated the early stages of the game, however, conceded first from a stunning Luis Alberto flicked effort. Napoli equalised from range just three minutes later through Piotr Zielinski. The Biancocelesti retook the lead seven minutes into the second half through summer signing Daichi Kamada. The visitors had the ball in the net twice more but both efforts were ruled out after VAR intervention.

After a disappointing start to the Serie A campaign, Sarri and his side can take a lot from the game in Naples, with very few negatives to pick from the performance and getting their first points on the board. For Rudi Garcia, though, there are very few positives to take from the night.
