ROME, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Lazio recorded a club record 10th consecutive Serie A victory by beating Napoli 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday thanks to a late howler by visiting goalkeeper David Ospina.
Colombian international Ospina was caught in possession inside his own box after 82 minutes, allowing Ciro Immobile to curl in his 20th league goal of the season.
Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli side came close to scoring as Piotr Zielinski hit the post and Lorenzo Insigne was denied three times by Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha, but the coach was consigned to his third defeat in his four games in charge.
Lazio are third in the standings with 42 points from 18 games, three behind Inter Milan and Juventus, while struggling Napoli dropped to 10th place on 24 points. (Reporting by Alasdair Mackenzie; Editing by Ken ferris)
