Napoli maintained the pressure on Serie A champions Juventus with a 1-0 win at Sampdoria, while Lazio prevailed at home to Siena.

Edinson Cavani scored the decisive goal for Napoli in the 68th minute of Sunday’s clash after Marek Hamsik was brought down by Daniele Gastaldello in the Sampdoria box, resulting in a penalty.

Gastaldello was sent off for receiving a second caution and had barely left the pitch as Cavani fired the ball past Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who had little chance of making a save.

Like Juventus, Napoli have five wins and a draw after six games, though Antonio Conte’s side remain on top with a superior goal difference.

Elsewhere, Ederson and Cristian Ledesma got on the scoresheet as Lazio clinched a 2-1 victory at the Stadio Olimpico.

The win saw Lazio climb to third with 12 points, while Sampdoria dropped to fourth on 10 points.

Fabrizio Miccoli netted a hat-trick as Palermo recorded their first win of the season by beating Chievo 4-1 at home.

Cagliari remain rooted to the bottom of the table without a victory after going down to Pescara 2-1 at home.

Meanwhile, Bologna accounted for Catania 4-0 at home, while Torino thumped Atalanta 5-1 away.

Udinese and Genoa played out a 0-0 stalemate in Udine.
