Napoli finally beaten as Inter revives Serie A title bid


MILAN (AP) — Serie A leader Napoli lost for the first time this season as Inter Milan reinvigorated its Italian title bid with a 3-2 win. Defending champion Inter cut the gap on Napoli and AC Milan to four points after 13 rounds and ended Napoli’s status as the last remaining unbeaten team across Europe’s five major leagues. Dries Mertens had set up a pulsating finale with Napoli’s late second goal but missed the chance to equalize in injury time when he blazed his shot over. Roma’s 18-year-old substitute Felix Afena-Gyan scored twice in a 2-0 win to spoil Andriy Shevchenko’s debut as Genoa coach.
