The high-flyers of SSC Naples went empty-handed in Serie A for the first time in two months. The sovereign table leaders and Champions League opponents from Eintracht Frankfurt lost 0: 1 (0: 0) against Lazio Rome on Friday.
It was the first point lost in the league since the 1-0 loss at Inter Milan on January 4 – Napoli had won the following eight games.
Matias Vecino scored to win for Lazio (67th). Nevertheless, the leader is clearly on course for the title: Napoli have won 21 of their 25 games, plus two draws and two defeats. Inter Milan, third in the table behind Lazio, could reduce the gap to 14 points with a win against US Lecce on Sunday (6 p.m. / DAZN). Napoli has been waiting for its third Scudetto for 33 years.
In the premier class, Napoli had presented a 2-0 win in Frankfurt. In the second leg on March 15 in Italy, Eintracht faces an almost impossible task.
