Soccer-Napoli keep title race alive with dramatic win over Chievo

MILAN, April 8 (Reuters) - Napoli missed a penalty and gifted their opponents a goal before scoring twice late in the game to snatch a 2-1 win over lowly Chievo on Sunday and keep the Serie A title race alive.

Napoli’s title challenge appeared to be petering out after Dries Mertens saw his penalty saved early in the second half and Mariusz Stepinski put the Flying Donkeys ahead with 17 minutes left.

But substitute Arkadiusz Milik headed an equaliser with two minutes remaining and Amadou Diawara grabbed the winner in the third minute of stoppage time.

The win left Napoli four points behind leaders Juventus who won 4-2 at Benevento on Saturday. (Writing by Brian Homewood in Berne Editing by Toby Davis)
