High-flying league leaders Napoli have been stopped in their tracks by Inter Milan in the Italian Serie A.

Napoli's seemingly Immovable object met a force that was just too much for them as they lost to Eden Dzeko's lone goal in the 56th minute at the Giuseppe Meazza San Siro Stadium on Wednesday night.

It was the first league defeat of the season for Luciano Spalletti and his charges who prior to last night's encounter had managed 13 wins and 2 draws in 15 league outings.

Despite the defeat, the Naples-based team still sit at the apex of the league log with 41 points, 5 points clear of champions AC Milan who sit second with 36 points.

Osimhen and co will hope to bounce back to winning ways when they take on Sampdoria in their next league game on Saturday, January 7.
