A late left footed screamer sent Juventus soaring to the top of Seria A at the expense of Napoli, their opponents on the night.

Following their indifferent form at the beginning of the season, the Old Lady have won 15 games on the trot now following Simone Zaza's 88th minute strike last night. 

Napoli, who have Pepe Reina, Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon in their ranks, took a two point advantage into the game and had hoped to extend it as the game looked destined for a stalemate. 

However, Italian international Zaza broke the deadlock with a stunning strike to put Massimo Allegri's men top of Serie A for the first time this season as they look to win the Scudetto for a fifth consecutive year.
