Napoli and Juventus play out a six-goal thriller in Serie A.

Juventus extended their lead at the top of Serie A to two points after coming from 3-1 down to snatch a draw in Naples this evening.

The Turin club scored all three of their goals in the second period of what was an end-to-end encounter between two of the division's strongest sides.

The home side took a two-goal lead into half time after strikes from Marek Hamsik and Goran Pandev.

Slovakian Hamsik also missed a penalty after a quarter of an hour when he was made to retake the kick because of encroaching from Gokhan Inler.

Juve got back into the game three minutes after the interval through forward Alessandro Matri before Pandev restored Napoli's two-goal lead and seemingly put the game out of reach 20 minutes later.

However, two goals in eight minutes ensured that Juve wouldn't suffer their first loss of the season.

First, Marcelo Estigarribia poked home at the far post before Simone Pepe equalised with a bustling run and low finish.

Antonio Conte's side are two points clear of AC Milan and Udinese at the top of the league while Napoli lie nine points adrift of the leaders.
