Serie A round-up: Napoli strengthen lead as Roma win derby
Last Updated: 18/11/17 10:46pm
Napoli moved four points clear of Juventus at the top of Serie A after they recorded a 2-1 victory against AC Milan on Saturday.
Lorenzo Insigne, controversially left on the substitutes' bench against Sweden as Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup, opened the scoring after 33 minutes with his fourth strike in the league.
Piotr Zielinski then doubled Napoli's tally to put the victory out of reach for Milan before Alessio Romagnoli scored a consolation in stoppage time.
Roma leapfrogged city rivals Lazio and put themselves firmly in Serie A title contention with a hard-fought 2-1 win in the Stadio Olimpico.
Two goals in four minutes early in the second half from Diego Perotti and Radja Nainggolan were enough to move Eusebio Di Francesco's side up to third after an impressive sixth straight win in all competitions.
Lazio reduced the deficit through a Ciro Immobile penalty but ultimately saw the end of their own nine-game winning run which stretched back to September.
