Napoli 2-1 Juventus

Juventus
Juventus were unbeaten in four games before losing to Napoli

Champions Juventus continued their miserable start to the Serie A season with defeat at Napoli.

Lorenzo Insigne and Gonzalo Higuain scored for the hosts before Mario Lemina pulled a goal back.

For Juve, champions for the past four seasons, it was a third defeat in six league matches, as many as in the whole of their last campaign.

They are already 10 points behind leaders Inter Milan, who host Fiorentina on Sunday.

Napoli moved into the top half with a second win of the season.

Juventus host Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday, looking to build on their opening group victory at Manchester City earlier this month.

Former Arsenal striker Gervinho scored in the league for the first time since November as Roma returned to form with a 5-1 victory over newly promoted Carpi.

Coach Rudi Garcia was under pressure after picking up one point from two matches against Sassuolo and Sampdoria.

But his side responded with Kostas Manolas, Miralem Pjanic, Mohamed Salah and Lucas Digne scoring their other goals.

However, injuries to Edin Dzeko, Francesco Totti and Seydou Keita threatened to take the shine off the result.
