Juventus vs Napoli Highlights – Juventus beat Napoli in a remarkable Serie A game as Kalidou Koulibaly’s injury-time own goal became the deciding factor negating the visitors’ three-goal comeback. The Old Lady led 3-0 through goals from debutante Danilo, former Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo’s first of the season. But, the three summer signings scored to put Napoli level Kostas Manolas, Hirving Lozano and Giovanni di Lorenzo. That was in vain as Koulibaly, unfortunately, shinned a deep free-kick past his own keeper.

Juventus who has won Serie A the last 8 times, clearly lacked the presence of their captain Giorgio Chiellini at the back. With £67.5m summer signing, Matthijs de Ligt made a shaky debut. The contest looked over after 62 minutes with the scoreline of 3-0. Former Manchester City defender, Danilo had come on to replace the injured Mattia de Sciglio, and 29 seconds into his debut, he scored after converting former Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa’s cross to finish off a swift counter-attack. Higuain then doubled the lead brilliantly as he turned Koulibaly before smashing the bouncing ball past Alex Meret with the outside of his foot. Ronaldo added a third in the second half as he finished another Costa cross.

Juventus vs Napoli Highlights – Former Roma defender Manolas headed the ball from Mario Rui’s cross in the 66th minute that looked like a mere consolation. But two minutes later they had real hope when Lozano, on his debut following a move from PSV Eindhoven, slotted in from Mario Rui’s cross to become the first Mexican to ever score in the Serie A.

Juventus vs Napoli Highlights – The dream looked set to become a reality for Napoli, who has finished second to Juventus in three of the past four seasons. When Di Lorenzo, a summer signing from Empoli, beat De Ligt to the ball to scramble home a free-kick, Napoli beat Fiorentina 4-3 in the opening game. This is the first time a club has scored and conceded at least seven goals in the first two games of a Serie A season since 1931-32 (also Napoli). It was a game for Napoli to lose despite putting in so much effort they felt short.
