Italian Serie A Watch: Napoli Regain Summit After Narrow Win At Udinese As Juventus Close Gap On Top Two With Big Victory

Napoli have gone back to the top of the Italian Serie A after their narrow 1-0 victory at Udinese in a week 14 clash on Sunday.

Midfielder Jorginho was the matchwinner for the away side following his 33rd minute goal.

Maurizio Sarri’s side had earlier lost top spot on Saturday after Inter Milan secured a 3-1 victory over Cagliari but that proved to be a brief time off the summit due to the win over Udinese.

Italian champions Juventus face a big battle to retain the title they have won for the past six seasons but they showed all is not lost with a convincing 3-0 win over Crotone at home.

Second half goals from Mario Mandzukic, Mattia De Scglio and Mehdi Benatia ensured that Juventus moved within two points of Inter Milan in second position and are four points off Napoli at the summit.
