Lazio were considered a possible outsider but after the first 9 games of the season the Biancocelesti were only 14th having lost the derby heavily and away to Inter.

A win against Napoli was going to be fundamental.


The match


Napoli played really well in the first half and impressed. Michele Andreolo led the Partenopei. Fantastic in defence, he was the inspiration for the rest of the team and dominated midfield. Lazio played decently but could not find the key to stop the Neapolitans. Napoli scored a spectacular goal in the 27th minute. Egidio Di Costanzo crossed the ball into the box, Italo Romagnoli II found himself back to the goal but with a spectacular bicycle kick beat Corrado Giubilio. The goal was so good that many Lazio fans applauded.


Napoli also started strongly in the second half, but after ten minutes Andreolo had nothing left in the tank and Lazio took over. In the 54th minute Bruno Ispiro scored but the referee had seen a Mario Magrini handball and the goal was disallowed. Three minutes later, the Biancocelesti equalised. Aldo Puccinelli crossed for Hengelbert Koenig, ball to Costantino De Andreis who volleyed it in. 


In the 68th minute freekick for Lazio. Splendid shot by Koenig and Lazio made it two. 


Good win for the Biancocelesti.
