[VIDEO PICK] AC Milan's Brazilian striker Pato sealed his team's 3-0 win over Napoli with a sublime strike.

After receiving the ball just inside Napoli's half, the 21-year-old calmly dribbled downfield and left befuddled the two Napoli defenders who thought they'd blocked his path to goal.

The win put the league leader six points ahead of third-place Napoli and five points ahead of Inter Milan.

    Where's the defensive pressure on Pato? Both Napoli defenders retreat, allowing him to move within striking range. Basic defending with two defenders: pressure and cover.
