Campionato Nazionale Primavera: Roma Beat Napoli To Keep Pressure On Leaders

Torino remain top of Group A as they extended their unbeaten run to 12 games with victory away at Parma this weekend.

Alberto Rosa Gastaldo opened the scoring very early on and the game was all-but-won by the half an hour mark when Andrea Lentile got on the end of a corner to head the visitors 2-0 up.

Torino have stuck top of the table since the opening day and are now five points ahead of second-placed Empoli.

Sampdoria put a massive dent in Juventus’ title hopes this weekend as they beat Torino’s arch rivals 1-0.

In Group B, Giuseppe Ungaro’s double kept Atalanta top of the league and keep them four points clear.

This week it was a narrow 2-1 win against Varese, with all the goals coming in the first half.

Stefano Truzzi put the home side in the lead after just ten minutes but Ungaro equalised in the 32nd minute. Ungaro netted a penalty in injury time of the first half to seal all three points.

Roma beat Napoli 3-1 to keep the pressure up on Fiorentina and Lazio at the top of Group C.

New boy Alessio Romagnoli scored the second goal in the win. Luca Mazzitelli and Arturo Calabresi scored either side of Romagnoli to record Alberto De Rossi side’s fourth consecutive win.

Lazio remain top of the table and on course to defend their crown despite drawing 0-0 away at Reggina this weekend.
