Goran Pandev gave Napoli the lead in the 35th minute before Cavani made it two 10 minutes after the interval.

The Uruguayan collected Marek Hamšík's pass on the left, turned inside before curling a beautiful shot into the top corner, leaving the outstretched Francesco Benussi with no chance.

It was a moment of inspiration from the 24-year-old, but Cavani decided not to celebrate it, although he was rewarded with applause by the home fans.

Hamšík then made the points safe on the hour mark before Fabrizio Miccoli grabbed a consolation for Palermo three minutes from time.
