MILAN (AP) Napoli missed the chance to reclaim top spot in Serie A as it fell to a surprise 3-2 defeat at relegation-threatened Bologna on Sunday and slipped to third after Fiorentina beat Udinese 3-0.

Bologna has been a transformed side since Roberto Donadoni replaced Delio Rossi as coach. One of the players who has flourished the most is Mattia Destro and he struck twice to take his tally to four goals in as many matches under the former Italy boss.

Luca Rossettini also scored as Bologna went 3-0 up on the hour mark. Serie A top scorer Gonzalo Higuain struck twice in three minutes but it was too late for Napoli to complete a remarkable comeback.

Fiorentina moved second, a point behind Inter Milan and one ahead of Napoli.
