With a 2-1 victory against Lecce, Napoli increased their advantage over Lazio to 19 points, moving them one step closer to winning the Serie A championship for the first time in 33 years. Napoli's first goal came via a header by Giovanni di Lorenzo, and Federico di Francesco matched it after the intermission. When defender Antonino Gallo chested the ball and saw it slide between goalkeeper Wladimiro Falcone's hands, Napoli scored the game-winning own goal. The opposition hung on to recover from their 4-0 defeat to AC Milan on Sunday.
When Giovanni Di Lorenzo headed in Kim Min-jae's cross after 18 minutes, Napoli, who haven't won the Serie A championship since 1990, took the lead. After Lecce's Federico Di Francesco tied the score seven minutes into the second half, the hosts were cruelly defeated for the sixth time in a row.
