Napoli scored one final goal through Tanguy Ndombele to earn their tenth victory in 11 games in all competitions.
When they host Juventus later on Sunday, second-placed Inter Milan will have the potential to trim Napoli’s lead at the top of Serie A.
Napoli is only 16 points away from winning the Scudetto for the first time since 1990.
