In Marek Hamsik, Napoli may have their latest successor to club great Diego Maradona.

However, his goal on Saturday didn't help Napoli move up the Serie A table in 1-1 draw at home with Lazio.

Napoli has won just two of their past eight matches.

But Hamsik, who broke Maradona's Napoli record of 81 Serie A goals in September, moved a step closer to matching the Argentine's club record of 115 in all competitions.

In his 10th season at the club, Hamsik is 12 off the mark set by Maradona, who led Napoli to their only two league titles in 1987 and 1990.

Napoli remain fifth, a point behind Lazio and AC Milan, who visits Palermo on Sunday.

Serie A leader Juventus travels to Chievo Verona, and is six points ahead of Napoli and four above second-place Roma, which hosts Bologna.

Elsewhere, Torino beat Cagliari 5-1 as they snapped a disappointing run of results.

Torino, who were coming off a three-match winless run, moved to sixth, two points behind Napoli while Cagliari remain ninth.
