Milan, Oct 28: Juventus missed the chance to join Inter Milan at the top of Serie A after losing 3-1 at promoted Napoli following two dubious penalties today.

Alessandro Del Piero opened the scoring for Juve straight after the break when Gennaro Iezzo fumbled his close-range effort into the net but Napoli hit back quickly through Walter Gargano's powerful shot.

Napoli's Maurizio Domizzi then converted two penalties on 62 and 70 minutes after Giorgio Chiellini was harshly adjudged to have fouled Ezequiel Lavezzi and former Juve striker Marcelo Zalayeta appeared to dive over keeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Juve remain on 17 points following their second league defeat, three behind champions Inter who face a tricky trip to Palermo tomorrow. Stuttering AC Milan host fourth-placed AS Roma while Fiorentina in third visit Genoa.

Earlier on Saturday, Torino beat Cagliari 2-0 thanks to Alessandro Rosina's strike and a Michele Ferri own goal.
