Gonzalo Higuain hit a brace as Napoli crept closer to second-placed Roma in Italy's Serie A with a 4-2 win away to Lazio on Monday.
Napoli's 10th win left them in third spot but after Roma's fourth consecutive draw on Sunday, Rafael Benitez's men are now only three points behind the Giallorossi and six off leaders Juventus.
"It was a crucial fixture for us," Higuain, who now has seven league goals this season, told Sky Sport Italia. "We didn't want to get distanced at the top of the table. I'm happy for myself but also for the team."
