Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri has apologised for "sexist and unacceptable" comments made to a female journalist after his side's Serie A match on Sunday.

The result meant Napoli trail first-place Juventus by a point, with the Old Lady having a game in hand.

Paulo Dybala stole the headlines by bagging a brace on the day, while Gonzalo Higuain missed a first-half penalty.

Paulo Dybala broke the deadlock in the 20th minute, curling a trademark free kick into the top corner. We're putting pressure on our rivals and we keep moving forwards.

The 30-year-old Higuain used his strength to hold off the Udinese defence before sliding in Dybala with a clever pass, and his compatriot did the rest to net his fourth goal in three matches.

"We're just thinking of ourselves", said Lorenzo Insigne, who went close for Napoli on several occasions at San Siro.

Napoli, which lost at home to Roma last weekend, nearly fell to a second successive defeat as Inter went closest to breaking the deadlock when Milan Skriniar headed a free kick off the right post early in the second half.

Brazilian Vitor Hugo scored the only goal in the 25th minute, celebrating by making a salute towards a photo of Astori on the side of the pitch.

Lazio boosted their top four hopes after snatching a point in a 2-2 draw at Cagliari on Sunday afternoon. There is one draw, the one from this season when Inter and Napoli drew 0-0 in Naples.
