Milan 2-0 Napoli

Giacomo Bonaventura scores

AC Milan moved above Napoli into sixth place in the Serie A table with victory over Rafael Benitez's side.

Jeremy Menez gave the hosts the lead when he raced past two Napoli defenders to find the corner of the net.

Giacomo Bonaventura sealed victory for Filippo Inzaghi's side with a header in the second half.

Although Andrea Poli and Riccardo Montolivo wasted chances to increase their lead, Milan moved to within two points of the Champions League places.
