Gonzalo Higuain hit his 24th goal in as many Serie A games as triumphant Napoli and Juventus moved closer toward a scudetto duel after slipups by title rivals Inter Milan and Fiorentina.Higuain and Napoli have been transformed since Maurizio Sarri took over from Rafael Benitez last summer but it took a second-half penalty for the Argentinian to keep Napoli top of the pile in a cagey 1-0 win over 10-man Carpi.With 14 games remaining the Argentine is chasing Gunnar Nordahl's 1950 record of 35 Serie A goals in a single, 20-team season but added: "It was a difficult game, they were all playing in defense.With 13 league goals the Argentinian is now second in the race for the "Capocannoniere" (top scorer) prize, 11 behind Higuain and one ahead of Eder (Inter) and Carlos Bacca (AC Milan).
