Serie A leaders Napoli have bounced back from their Italian Cup elimination with a 2-0 win at regional rivals Salernitana.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Victor Osimhen scored either side of halftime as Napoli moved 12 points clear of defending champions AC Milan ahead of the Rossoneri’s game at Lazio on Tuesday.

Napoli lost a penalty shootout to Cremonese, who are last in Serie A, in the Italian Cup on Tuesday.

Salernitana were coming off a wild week including an 8-2 rout by Atalanta last weekend, firing coach Davide Nicola on Monday and rehiring him on Wednesday.

Di Lorenzo scored for Napoli off the underside of the crossbar in first-half added time and teammate Victor Osimhen knocked in a rebound three minutes after the break.

Osimhen tops the league with 13 goals in 16 appearances.

Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret preserved the clean sheet by pushing a shot from Krzysztof Piatek off the post seven minutes from time.

Also, Torino won at Fiorentina 1-0 with a goal from Aleksej Miranchuk and Hellas Verona beat Lecce 2-0 with goals from Fabio Depaoli and Darko Lazovic.
