Cavani and Inler steer Napoli to victory

SSC Napoli moved back within two points of the summit after a 5-1 home victory against Pescara Calcio, on a day when FC Internazionale Milano and S.S. Lazio also prevailed.

Edinson Cavani and Gökhan Inler both scored twice as SSC Napoli condemned Pescara Calcio to a chastening 5-1 defeat, before FC Internazionale Milano and S.S. Lazio also recorded home wins.

The early kick-off was just nine minutes old when Inler set the tone with a rasping long-range strike. A beautifully crafted move culminated in an unerring Marek Hamšík finish six minutes later, before Birkir Bjarnason reduced the deficit.

The hosts wrested back the initiative after the break when Cavani converted from the spot, and he subsequently doubled his tally with a sumptuous finish. Not content with their lot, Inler's spectacular second made it five.

Inter lie third after Santiago García's own goal handed them a 1-0 home win against US Città di Palermo, with ACF Fiorentina unable to jump ahead of the Nerazzurri due their 2-2 home draw with UC Sampdoria. In fifth, Lazio edged Parma FC 2-1, and their sixth-placed city neighbours AS Roma ran out 3-1 winners at AC Siena, Mattia Destro on target twice.

Elsewhere, Udinese Calcio arrested a run of five league games without a win by powering past Cagliari Calcio 4-1, AC Chievo Verona prevailed 4-2 at struggling Genoa CFC and Bologna FC climbed up to 16th after consigning Atalanta BC to a 2-1 reverse.
