Napoli down Juventus to keep title hopes alive

May JohnsonApr 24, 2018

With the match looking as though it was heading for a 0-0 draw, Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly rose highest in the box, towering above everyone to head home Jose Callejon's 90th-minute corner.

Juventus are now four points clear of Napoli at the top of Serie A and a win will give them a huge boost as they seek their seventh consecutive league title.

"There is one point [between us] ... we want to win every game from now to the end".

"Of course, it's very hard and fantastic to win here, it gives us enormous satisfaction but we have to remain lucid".

The Serie A leaders suffered a blow after just 11 minutes this week when Giorgio Chiellini was forced off with injury.

The side had begun to look stale recently and scored only four goals in five matches before Wednesday's game against Udinese when a 4-2 win convinced Maurizio Sarri that his team has rediscovered its spark.

Napoli also went close early through Marek Hamsik before Lorenzo Insigne had a goal disallowed for offside.

Those fans will be hoping Juve drop points in their remaining games, especially as they still have to play away at third-place Roma and fifth-place Inter Milan.

Mets remove the struggling Matt Harvey from rotation
With Jason Vargas returning to the rotation, the Mets had to move somebody out, and Harvey and his 6.00 ERA are the choice. The team chose the latter, hoping Matt Harvey can regain his form.

"We are a team whose philosophy is always to try and impose our style of play and we will try to do that in Turin as well", he added.

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.

"Yet another twist in the most compelling of Serie A seasons!"

Lazio dominated Sampdoria in their Stadio Olimpico with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic breaking through after 32 minutes and a Stefan de Vrij diving header giving the hosts a second just before the break. He won the award in 2014 while playing for Torino.

Inter broke the deadlock seven minutes after the break. I don't understand. How many do the others play?

Chievo set up a tense finale when substitute Mariusz Stepinski scored in the final minute and nearly snatched an equalizer in stoppages.

It remains to be seen who has the last laugh.
