Juventus Score Last-Gasp Winner To Beat Napoli 4-3 In Thrilling Serie A Match

Juventus scored a last-gasp winner to beat Napoli 4-3 in a thrilling Serie A fixture.

Juventus squandered a three-goal lead but still, somehow, secure all three points. The hosts took the lead through new Danilo, they then doubled their lead thanks to a stunning strike from Gonzalo Higuain.

Cristiano Ronaldo put his side three-up just after the hour mark. However, the hosts fought back. Kostas Manolas reduced the deficit with Hirving Lozano scoring his first goal for Napoli.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo leveled the game in the 81st minute. But defending Italian champions regained the lead deep into stoppage time courtesy of a Kalidou Koulibaly own goal.

Speaking after his side's victory, Higuain said: "Wow. That was a rollercoaster.

"They scored two goals very quickly and that shouldn't be allowed to happen. We lost control of the game and got distracted, so they managed to equalise, but fortunately in the end we still won.

"It is a very important victory. We have a lot to improve, but we gave our all on the pitch and were eventually rewarded.

"I came here with the motivation to stay," he added. "I love this jersey, this club and these fans. From the first second I arrived, it was the idea in my head that I wanted to remain."

Juventus move top of the league following their second league win of the new campaign.

Napoli, on the other hand, sit in eighth place with three points to their name.
