Napoli were missing top scorer Edinson Cavani due to suspension but with Lorenzo Insigne stepping up to the plate admirably, the visitors set their stall out early and should have had several goals in the opening half.

Milan: Goals by Gokhan Inler, Goran Pandev and Blerim Dzemaili handed Napoli a valuable 3-0 win away to rock-bottom Pescara on Saturday and put Juventus's title celebrations on hold for at least another week.

Juventus began the day with an 11-point lead on Napoli and would have secured their 29th Scudetto with a win over Torino on Sunday had Pescara beaten Napoli or held the visitors to a draw.

Given Pescara have only won six times in 33 games, that seemed a tall order for the league new boys who, after a 24th defeat of the season, seem destined for a return to Serie B.
