Dries Mertens ended a long goal drought to give Napoli a 1-0 victory at Atalanta Sunday that stretched their advantage in Serie A to four points.Napoli's win in the first league game after the winter break extended their lead over second-placed Juventus ahead of the champions' clash with Genoa Monday.Benevento had won two games in a row going into the winter break but remain on seven points and are now 12 points from safety after Crotone's 3-0 win at second-bottom Hellas Verona, which lifted them out of the bottom three.Napoli lost six points to Atalanta last season and this narrow victory represents a complete turn-around for Maurizio Sarri's Napoli, who also won 3-1 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.
