Napoli Have Edge Despite Klose Strike

Napoli came away with a valuable away goal as they drew 1-1 at Lazio in their Copa Italia semi-final first-leg clash on Wednesday.
Lazio almost made the ideal start as they came within inches of opening the scoring in the ninth minute. A corner kick picked out Miroslav Klose who rose above Raul Albiol to meet the delivery with his head. The header was hit downwards and took a nasty bounce which resulted in it hitting the post.
At the other end of the pitch, Napoli should have produced the first goal in the 27th minute. A through-ball from Mertens put Gonzalo Higuain in space but the striker simply couldn't find a way past Berisha.
Lazio put their noses in front in the 33rd minute as Klose provided a clinical strike. A diagonal ball from Felipe Anderson gave the veteran striker the chance to find the back of the net, which he did with a cool finish.
Napoli threatened five minutes into the second half as they too hit the woodwork. Poor defending from a corner kick allowed David Lopez a free header on goal, but it fired into the bar and went behind.
The crucial equaliser, and away goal, arrived in the 57th minute as Higuain latched onto a superb through-ball from Mertens, rounded the keeper and then unselfishly squared for Manolo Gabbiadini to score.
