Napoli scored twice in the first half as they upstaged Milan 2-1 in Saturday's enthralling fixture at San Siro.

Two goals in nine minutes from Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon inspired third-placed Napoli in Milan, with Juraj Kucka's 37th-minute goal not enough to derail Sarri and Co.

And speaking afterwards, head coach Sarri - whose men are preparing for a Champions League last-16 tie against title holders Real Madrid - said Napoli are capable of greatness.

"We showed our usual limitations, but there were steps forward, because we held out for the win and started to control the ball a bit better as time wore on," Sarri told Mediaset Premium.
