Napoli have maintained their spot at the top of the Italian Serie A table after the latest round of games. Their position was under threat from second-placed AC Milan ahead of a tricky match with hosts Fiorentina on Sunday night.

Seven-time European champions AC Milan started the latest set of Italian Serie A games with a two-point deficit to Napoli and they were able to move a point ahead via the battling away win over fellow Champions League campaigners Atalanta.Duvan Zapata (penalty) andCroatian midfielder Mario Pasalicscored for Atalanta in the final four minutes but it was not enough to rescue at least a point as they were beaten 3-2 by the Rossoneri. Davide Calabria and Sandro Tonali were on target in the first half before Rafael Leao added a third goal on 78 minutes.

Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti and his players were able to regain their place at the summit from Milan thanks to the 2-1 away win over Fiorentina. The home side took the lead on 28 minutes through Argentine centre back Lucas Martinez but it took just ten minutes for Napoli to restore parity. Mexican national team attacker Hirving Lozano was responsible for the goal that brought Napoli on level terms seven minutes before the interval.
Napoli were able to build on their first half leveller in the second half thanks to kosovancentre back Amir Rrahmani. The Kosovo national team defender scored what turned out to be the winning goal of the game five minutes into the second half.
The goal from Rrahmani ensured that Napoli moved above AC Milan at the Italian Serie A summit ahead of the October international break. Napoli are guaranteed top spot for at least two months until league football resumes later in the month. Napoli have a maximum of 21 points from seven games, while Milan are in second spot with 19 points from seven games on the Serie A standings.
