Serie A: Napoli Shrug Off Loss To Claim Narrow Win At Lecce

Napoli Win Lecce

Napoli shrugged off the loss at Milan and continued with their march towards their first Serie A title in 33 years after securing a 2-1 win against Lecce on Friday.

The team's victory was due to a bizarre own goal from Lecce defender Antonino Gallo in the 64th minute, which ultimately led to Lecce's loss of momentum.

Napoli's lead at the top of the table now stands at 19 points over second-placed Lazio, who will play against Juventus on Saturday.

Napoli had a shaky start in the match, but they eventually took the lead in the 18th minute when Giovanni Di Lorenzo headed home Kim Min-jae's cross.

Lecce managed to equalize in the second half after Federico Di Francesco pounced on a rebound and sent the ball into the bottom corner.

However, their momentum was short-lived, and Napoli was able to secure the win thanks to Gallo's bizarre own goal.

Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti admitted that the team was hampered by the absence of Serie A top scorer Victor Osimhen, who is still recovering from a thigh strain.

Spalletti praised Osimhen's skills and acknowledged the challenges the team faces without him. Napoli has nine games left to play, and their next match will be against Sampdoria on April 10.

Meanwhile, Lecce's woes continued as they suffered their sixth straight defeat in Serie A.

They are currently in 16th place, eight points above the relegation zone.

Despite their struggles, Lecce has had good results against big clubs this season, and they gave a good fight against Napoli until Gallo's bizarre own goal.
