Edinson Cavani struck twice in a 2-1 win for Napoli as they left Manchester City's Champions League hopes in tatters.

The highly-rated Uruguayan lifted the Italian side back into second in Group A with goals either side of a Mario Balotelli equaliser at the intimidating Stadio San Paolo.

City had several chances in an eventful game but Marek Hamsik also hit the post for the hosts, who dominated for long spells.
