Milan maintain lead with Chievo victory

AC Milan's Serie A lead remains three points after SSC Napoli responded to their victory at AC Chievo Verona by beating Calcio Catania, on a day when AS Roma lost 4-3 to Genoa CFC.

A 2-1 win at AC Chievo Verona briefly took AC Milan five points clear at the Serie A summit before SSC Napoli sealed a success of their own to reclaim second place and cut the Rossoneri's lead to three points.

Milan had Pato to thank for the late goal (82) that secured their 16th league victory after Gelson Fernandes (61) had cancelled out Robinho's 25th-minute opener, but Napoli replied with their fourth league win in five matches when Juan Camilo Zúñiga struck (25) to lift the Partenopei above FC Internazionale Milano.

S.S. Lazio lie two points behind Inter after Hernanes (6) scored the only goal of their game against basement club AS Bari, while city rivals AS Roma are down to eighth place after squandering a three-goal lead to lose 4-3 at Genoa CFC. Phillippe Mexès (6), Nicolás Burdisso (16) and Francesco Totti (56) put the visitors in apparent control before two goals apiece from Rodrigo Palacio (52, 74) and substitute Alberto Paloschi (68, 85) completed a remarkable comeback.

Elsewhere, sixth-placed Juventus were also shocked, going down 2-0 at US Lecce, and Parma FC drew 2-2 with AC Cesena. ACF Fiorentina and Udinese Calcio were held to goalless home draws by UC Sampdoria and Brescia Calcio respectively.
