Juventus appeared to be on course for a nine-point cushion at the top of the table after taking an early lead through Chiellini.

The hosts were struggling to get into the game, but they managed to haul themselves level just before the break.

İnler picked up possession some 30 yards out and his well-struck drive from distance took a deflection off the head of Leonardo Bonucci, sending it flying over the despairing dive of Gianluigi Buffon.

"A great goal that I want to dedicate to Napoli's fans," İnler told the club's official website.

"At last, I have managed to score against Buffon: also when I used to play in Udine he had saved all my shots. I am happy that I beat him and that I have given our fans a beautiful goal."
