Napoli ecstatic after 1-0 win over Juventus in Serie A

Douglas Costa Higuain Dybala Juventus

Koulibaly headed the victor off a Jose Callejon corner in the final minute to give Napoli their first ever victory at the Allianz Stadium.

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.

"Today, Giorgio Chiellini underwent medical tests following his early exit from Sunday's match against Napoli", a statement read on Juventus' official website.

Compounding Juve's last-gasp defeat is the fact Massimiliano Allegri's men arguably have the tougher run-in of the two sides, with the Derby d'Italia away to Inter coming up next Saturday, and a clash with Champions League semi-finalists Roma awaiting in the penultimate round of fixtures.

With full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner introduced and Benedikt Howedes shifting to centre-back, Juve went close for the first time in the 17th minute, Miralem Pjanic's deflected free-kick wrongfooting Pepe Reina and striking the far post, leaving the Napoli goalkeeper stranded.




Napoli captain Marek Hamsik threatend twice to break the deadlock while Lorenzo Insigne had a goal disallowed for offside in the first half with substitute Piotr Zielinski's snapshot on 83 minutes cleared by goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. We had some difficulties, but we should've taken it to the end more carefully rather than concede a goal from a set play. Napoli are the symbol of an entire population who follow us always and everywhere.

"Now we have a rest day, then we have to prepare for what I think really will be the decisive match for our season against Inter Milan (this Sunday). It was a match we didn't want to lose but let's not forget that we're still a point ahead and we just need to hold onto our lead", Allegri was quoted as saying by Juventus' website.

Napoli, who last won the title in 1990, travel to Fiorentina for their next game before playing Torino, Sampdoria and Crotone. "We proved that tonight".

The battle for Europe could go down to the wire with Lazio hosting Inter in their final game of the season.
