After relinquishing their crown to Inter last weekend, suffered a potentially disastrous 3-0 defeat to AC Milan at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday night, as the battle for qualification nears its conclusion.

Brahim Diaz edged the ahead at the end of a cagey first half, before substitute and Fikayo Tomori secured the win lead late on, to move three points ahead of the Bianconeri and into third place. Crucially, the win also gives the head-to-head advantage over the recently dethroned champions.

With Napoli brushing aside relegation-threatened Spezia 4-1 and Atalanta hitting five against Serie B-bound Parma earlier in Round 35 to strengthen their own respective positions behind Inter, sealing victory in Turin had become even more important to the pair.
