Thousands Of Jubilant Napoli Fans Welcome Team After Juve Win

Kalidou Koulibaly headed in a late victor in Turin to send Napoli to within a point of Juventus in the race for the Serie A title.

Kalidou Koulibaly's 89th-minute victor moved Napoli to within one point of the leaders with four games to go, and understandably, the rest of the Juventus team headed down the tunnel in obvious disappointment.

Juventus have 85 points from 34 games with Napoli, bidding for a third Scudetto after 1987 and 1990, on 84.

Juventus got a good chance in the 17th minute on a deflected free-kick that goalkeeper Pepe Reina tried to capitalize on but hit the post with.

A win for Napoli would mean the title race is well and truly back on, and football fans all over Europe will be rooting for Maurizio Sarri's underdogs, hoping that Juve will finally be dethroned in Italy.

The legendary Italian stopper went in among the Napoli squad as they celebrated their victory wildly and congratulated every single player.

"We've played 57 games in each of the last four seasons", Allegri said after the match.

Second-half goals from Mauro Icardi, who took his tally to 26, and Ivan Perisic gave Inter Milan a fortuitous 2-1 win at Chievo which kept them fifth with 66 points.

Massimiliano Allegri's side were held to a draw at struggling Crotone on Wednesday.

What is certain is that, by their own high standards, Juventus were a strangely submissive team on Sunday night.

The injury could also see the defender potentially miss out on the club's Coppa Italia final against AC Milan on May 9.

Napoli are right back in Serie A title contention thanks to Kalidou Koulibaly's dramatic late header in their game with leaders Juventus. "Chiellini, who will undergo further tests, has already started his therapy".
