Piotr Zielinski hit the woodwork for Napoli

Napoli missed the chance to go top of Serie A after playing out a goalless draw with Fiorentina.

Maurizio Sarri's side failed to take advantage of leaders Inter Milan's 0-0 draw with title rivals Juventus on Saturday, remaining one point behind.

The hosts went closest to a goal when Piotr Zielinski's shot was saved onto the post by Marco Sportiello.

Elsewhere, fourth-placed Roma drew 0-0 at Chievo and Benevento lost 2-0 to Udinese.

It was a return to losing ways for Serie A's bottom side, whose dramatic 2-2 draw with AC Milan last Sunday is their only point from 16 games.

SPAL battled back from 2-0 down in the 86th minute to hold relegation rivals Hellas Verona 2-2.
