Relegation-battling Lecce halted Napoli's revival with a shock 3-2 win at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday, their first Serie A victory at the venue since 1998.

Gianluca Lapadula put the visitors in front against the run of play after 30 minutes, but Napoli pulled level early in the second half through Arkadiusz Milik.

Gennaro Gattuso's side were left stunned when Lapadula struck again with a header before Marco Mancosu whipped a stunning free kick into the top corner, and Jose Callejon's 90th-minute bicycle kick was too little too late.

The result ended a run of three consecutive wins for Napoli in all competitions and left the hosts in 11th place with 30 points, eight ahead of 17th-placed Lecce.
