Napoli 3-0 Verona

Lorenzo Insigne celebrates scoring for Napoli against Verona
Lorenzo Insigne's successful penalty was his 13th goal of the season.

Napoli maintained some pressure on Serie A leaders Juventus with a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Verona.

Napoli are six points behind Juventus with six games remaining.

Manolo Gabbiadini headed Napoli ahead in the 33rd minute and Lorenzo Insigni scored a penalty in first-half stoppage time after Verona's Samuel Souprayen was sent off for a professional foul on Jose Callejon.

Callejon tapped home the third goal on 70 minutes.

Juventus remain clear favourites to claim the Italian title after they beat AC Milan 2-1 on Saturday.
