MILAN (AP) Napoli came from behind to beat Sassuolo 3-1 and move provisionally four points clear at the top of Serie A after Inter Milan was held at Atalanta to 1-1 on Saturday.

Gonzalo Higuain scored twice to take his tally to 20 league goals, while Jose Callejon netted his first to cancel out Diego Falcinelli's third-minute opener from the spot for Sassuolo.

Juventus can cut the gap back to two points if it beats Udinese on Sunday for a 10th consecutive win.

Inter's title challenge suffered another blow. Atalanta, loser of its last four matches, was the stronger side and Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic had to pull off some fine saves, including a stunning stop on the hour mark.

Both sides netted own goals in the first half.
