Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri concedes their Scudetto chances are slipping away.

Napoli were title contenders, but have now dropped to third place after picking up one point from the last two games.

"Let us not forget that we have had to do without Ezequiel Lavezzi for three rounds," said Mazzarri after dropping two points against Brescia.

"It would be like taking Zlatan Ibrahimovic off Milan. Especially with home games, where you need a spark to break the deadlock, someone like Lavezzi can be decisive."
