Two goals from Arkadiusz Milik helped Napoli move six points clear in second place with a 4-0 win over Frosinone in Serie A on Saturday.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side took advantage of third-placed Inter’s defeat at Juventus on Friday by extending their lead over the Nerazzurri, although they are eight points off the pace set by the champions.

Napoli coach picked a heavily rotated side with one eye on their crucial Champions League game at Liverpool on Tuesday, but Piotr Zielinski and Adam Ounas struck before the break and a second-half Milik brace sealed a comfortable win.

Napoli needed just seven minutes to take the lead as Zielinski fired a shot into the bottom corner after a period of pressure from the home side.

Shortly before the interval they doubled their advantage in style when Ounas struck a powerful shot into the top corner from almost 30 metres.

The result was beyond doubt midway through the second half when Milik rose at the front post to nod in a corner, before he tapped in from a cross-shot with five minutes remaining.

The Polish striker took his seasonal tally to seven league goals, already a record for him in a single Serie A season, while Faouzi Ghoulam marked his return after more than a year out injured with two assists.

Napoli have 35 points from 15 games, while Frosinone remain second-bottom on eight points.
