Gonzalo Higuain scored his 31st and 32nd goals of the season as Napoli held onto second place in the Serie A table by beating Atalanta 2-1.
The league's leading scorer converted Marek Hamsik's pass after 10 minutes and turned Jose Callejon's pass home late on to keep Roma from moving into the runners-up spot.
Raul Albiol put through his own net at the death to give Napoli the jitters, but the points were safe.
Earlier, substitute Francesco Totti helped Roma secure a dramatic late victory as the Giallorossi rallied to beat Genoa 3-2 at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
The 39-year-old striker had scored three key goals from the bench in recent matches and further strengthened his claim for a new contract by inspiring Stephan El Shaarawy to grab a last-gasp winner.
Mohamed Salah's early goal had been cancelled out by Panagiotis Tachtsidis before Leonardo Pavoletti briefly fired Genoa into the lead.
The result leaves Roma two points behind Napoli with two games remaining.
