Napoli march up the table with Brescia win

By AAP Newswire

Napoli bounced back to win 2-1 at Italian Serie A strugglers Brescia on Friday (Saturday AEDT) to move into the qualification zone for the UEFA Europa League.

Jhon Chancellor nodded in a corner in the first half to give Brescia the lead, but the guests came back after the break.

Lorenzo Insigne converted a penalty and Fabian Ruiz struck under the bar to help the Neapolitans go sixth on the table.

Napoli went past Verona, Parma and AC Milan, who all sit level one point adrift and play this weekend.

Brescia are second-last and in danger of relegation unless they can turn their season around.
