Torino 1-3 Napoli

Marek Hamsik
Marek Hamsik is in his 10th year at Napoli

Marek Hamsik equalled Diego Maradona's record as Napoli's all-time top goalscorer as the Italian side beat Torino to go top of Serie A.

The Slovakia midfielder scored his 115th goal for the club by sweeping home Dries Mertens' pass for his side's third.

Kalidou Koulibaly headed in the opener for the visitors before Piotr Zielinski slotted in a second.

Torino striker Andrea Belotti grabbed a second-half consolation for the hosts.

The win moved Napoli above Inter Milan, who lost 3-1 to Udinese at the San Siro earlier on Saturday.

Napoli are on 42 points, two ahead of Inter.
