Jose Callejon scores for Napoli away to Inter Milan
Jose Callejon has scored 12 goals in 34 Serie A games this season

Napoli increased the pressure on Roma in the race for a Champions League group stage place with a narrow victory at Inter Milan.

Spanish forward Jose Callejon scored the winner for the Naples-based club, who are now one point behind second-placed Roma with four games left.

The top two qualify for the Champions League group stage.

Inter are now without a win in six league games and are in seventh spot in the Serie A table.

Earlier, Roma lost 3-1 to Lazio in the Derby della Capitale to leave leaders Juventus four points away from being crowned champions of Italy for a sixth successive season.

AC Milan's European hopes take a knock

AC Milan's hopes of securing a Europa League third qualifying round spot were dented as they were held to a 1-1 draw away at relegation-threatened Crotone.

Milan, who are sixth, finished the game with 10 men after Slovakia midfielder Juraj Kucka was dismissed in the 90th minute.

Palermo secured only a fourth league win of the season to stave off relegation for at least one more game.

The next-to-bottom side beat eighth-placed Fiorentina 2-0 but are still 10 points from safety with four games to go.

Former Roma striker Mattia Destro scored twice as Bologna hammered Udinese 4-0 while there were also wins for Chievo, Cagliari and Sassuolo.
