First-half goals from Piotr Zielinski and Dries Mertens gave the Biancocelesti a mountain to climb in Naples, before Fabian Ruiz added a fourth, and the Romans have now won just once in their last 11 games outside the capital.

PLAYER OF THE MATCH – LUIS ALBERTO
The Spaniard forced an acrobatic save from David Ospina midway through the first half, when Lazio still had hopes of playing their way back into contention, and continued to look to open up the Napoli defence with probing through balls. However, a lack of support from his midfield accomplices resulted in Alberto playing too far from the opposition goal.
