Napoli breached stubborn Verona after 65 minutes when Kalidou Koulibaly headed in from a corner and Jose Callejon volleyed home Lorenzo Insigne's cross. Dybala and Bernardeschi both hit the woodwork for Juve in the first half while Wojciech Szczesny denied Cagliari with two stunning saves. Dybala limped off with a possible thigh strain in the second half. Eventually, though, Douglas Costa beat two defenders on the right and sent over a low cross which Bernardeschi turned in from close range. Immobile took his tally to 20 in the league with his haul against SPAL, scoring a hat-trick of opportunist goals between the 19th and 41st minutes and adding another five minutes into the second half. Luis Alberto got Lazio off the mark in the fifth minute, wriggling through the defence to score a brilliant individual goal, before Mirko Antenucci levelled with a penalty three minutes later.
Ciro Immobile now up to 20 league goals for the season. Topscorer in Europe's top 5 leagues.— Deji Faremi (@deejayfaremi) January 6, 2018
Bologna's Simone Verdi went down in the area and was booked for diving but the referee changed his mind and awarded a penalty after consulting with the video assistant referee. However, Erick Pulgar's spot kick was saved by Salvatore Sirigu and Torino went on to score further goals through M'Baye Niang and Iago Falque. The VAR was also used at AC Milan who had a goal chalked off for a foul by Franck Kessie. However, they were already in front by then after Crotone goalkeeper Alex Cordaz punched an attempted clearance straight at Leonardo Bonucci and the ball rebounded in. Massimo Coda hit the woodwork twice before scoring a brace for Benevento as they came from behind to beat Sampdoria.
