AS Roma's ambition in keeping pace at the top of Serie A table was halted again this weekend as they suffered a disappointing defeat from Napoli.
The away side were keen on grabbing a positive result ahead of their Champions League tie on midweek, but was on for a surprise.
Napoli put on an aggressive approach straight from kick off, causing many problems for their opponent and resulted in an opening goal from Gonzalo Higuain after just three minutes.
The Partenopei continue to create many chances, but have to settle for a one goal lead during that first 45 minutes.
Roma tried to bounce back early in the second half as they put on an attacking set up in search for an equalizing goal.
However, it was the home side that eventually grabbed a second goal when a fast counter attack was finished off by Jose Callejon five minutes from time.
