On a night dedicated to celebrating the memory of D1OS, Napoli channelled Diego Maradona’s magic in a 4-0 rout over Lazio, bringing down the Lazio eagle with a scintillating first-half display. Piotr Zielinski opened the scoring before Dries Mertens rolled back the years with a brilliant brace. Fabian Ruiz also got on the scoresheet with a powerful left-footed strike in the closing stages to cap a wonderful evening for the Azzurri at the Stadio Maradona.
