Late goals keep Napoli's Serie A hopes alive

09/04/2018

Amadou Diawara left it very late to fire Napoli to a nervy 2-1 victory over Chievo that keeps their hopes of winning the Serie A title alive.

Maurizio Sarri's side went into Sunday's game at the San Paolo seven points adrift of leaders Juventus, who beat Benevento on Saturday, but found Chievo tough opposition.

The Flying Donkeys resisted until Fabio Depaoli's foul on Dries Mertens in the 51st minute brought a penalty, but Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino saved Mertens' effort.

Substitute Mariusz Stepinski gave Chievo a shock lead in the 73rd minute, driving home a fantastic effort from an Emmanuele Giaccherini pass, but Napoli replacement Arkadiusz Milik levelled a minute from time.

And three minutes into stoppage time, Diawara plundered the winner following a corner.

Lazio came from behind to strengthen their bid for Champions League football with a 2-1 success at Udinese.

Kevin Lasagna gave the hosts an early lead but the division's top scorer Ciro Immobile levelled before the half hour and Luis Alberto completed the comeback with a powerful drive in the 37th minute.
