Video: Dries Mertens Doubles Napoli’s Lead Against Lazio Minutes After First Goal

By Steven Moore -

Just three minutes after their first goal through Piotr Zielinski, Napoli took a 2-0 lead over Lazio thanks to Dries Mertens.

The Partenopei did not hold back after taking the lead and pushed for another; after controlling possession, Fabian Ruiz played a through ball down the left flank between Patric and luiz Felipe.

Lorenzo Insigne was on the end of the pass – with his first touch he played Dries Mertens through on goal and the Belgian attacker did the rest, tearing Lazio’s backline apart to give Napoli a 2-0 lead.
