Rome - Napoli flew higher than The Eagles (Le Aquile) on Saturday night, as they came from behind to defeat Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico. They climbed their own K2, with K for Kim whose header drew them level, and K for Kvaratskhelia whose powerful strike clinched the victory. It was an incredible comeback for the Azzurri, as they shone in the second half. They’d made a poor start to the game, going a goal down in under five minutes from Mattia Zaccagni’s strike. However, Napoli were ascendant and Kim Minjae launched the start of their comeback just before half-time with a towering header from a corner. It was all Napoli in the second half, as they knocked ever closer on Lazio’s door, but it was Kvara who managed to convert his chance and lead the Azzurri to victory.
