Serie A Results | Matchday 29 - Round-Up From Sunday March 19

Want to know what happened in Matchday 25 in Serie A? We round up the key games from Saturday March 18.

Napoli held off an Empoli comeback to win 3-2 at Carlo Castellani and go second in Serie A, at least before Roma play.

Napoli were awarded a penalty after just five minutes when Dries Mertens was tripped by Andrea Costa, but the Napoli man had his kick saved.

Maurizio Sarri’s side did race into a three-goal lead through a Lorenzo Insigne brace either side of a stunning free-kick from Mertens.

Empoli caused a few panics when they pulled a goal back through Omar El Kaddouri, also from a free-kick.

The hosts were also awarded a penalty with just under ten minutes to play and Massimo Maccarone slotted home.

Juventus won 1-0 at Sampdoria to go ten points clear at the top of the table. Juan Cuadrado’s header in the seventh minute was enough to separate the teams.

Atalanta were back to winning ways after they beat Pescara 3-0 at the Atleti Azzurri d'Italia.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s men moved level on points with Inter after the result, which saw Alejandro Gomez score a brace.

The striker grabbed his first in the 13th minute when he finished from inside the box after Hans Hateboer’s cross had evaded everyone.

Gomez turned provider for the second, crossing for Alberto Grassi to finish from close range.

The Argentine grabbed his second in added time when Franck Kessie pulled the ball back for him and he drilled home.
