ROME (AP) - Giorgio Chiellini's early goal helped first-place Juventus gain a 1-1 tie at second-place Napoli on Friday night, leaving the defending champion in control of the race for its 28th Italian league title.

Chiellini scored on a header in the 10th minute, and Gokhan Inler got Inter's goal in the 43rd.

Napoli's Blerim Dzemaili was wide off the rebound of Marek Hamsik's shot in the 73rd, with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon out of position.

Juventus (18-4-5) has a six-point lead over Napoli (15-4-8) with 11 games remaining.

Before kickoff, a window of the Juventus team bus was broken by Napoli supporters.
