Simone Zaza broke a scoreless draw late in Juventus against Napoli with an impressive strike from deep in the game’s 88th minute, extending Juve's record winning streak to 15 matches.

Zaza entered the game as a substitute in the 56th minute for Alvaro Morata and proved to be the difference in the battle for the top of the table in Serie A. Juventus, the four-time defending league champion, was also able to snap Gonzalo Higuain's scoring streak of six league games and now leads Napoli by a point.
