Inter Milan have surged seven points clear at the top Italian football's Serie A after a 2-nil win at lowly Livorno.

The champions were able to extend their advantage after joint-second Sampdoria could only draw nil-all at home with Bari, while Juventus were beaten 3-2 by Napoli.

AS Roma ended their bad run with a 2-1 comeback win at home to Bologna but city rivals Lazio, also struggling, were held 1-all at bottom side Siena.
