Hamsik equals Maradona record - FCNaija

Serie A By: Ayodeji Tunde | 17/12/2017

One of the long-standing records at Italian club, Napoli has finally being equaled.

Marek Hamsik equaled Diego Maradona's Napoli goalscoring record as Maurizio Sarri's men won 3-1 at Torino to move top of the Serie A table.

Hamsik enjoyed his historic moment before the break, slotting a first-time strike into the top-right corner to level Maradona's haul of 115 goals for Napoli in all competitions and make it a perfect day for the Partenopei.

Though Andrea Belotti squeezed a low strike past Pepe Reina to get Torino on the scoresheet after 63 minutes, but Napoli held their nerves to win and gain a two-point lead over Inter Milan after their surprise 3-1 home loss to Udinese.
