Napoli beat Juventus: Thousands of fans welcome team at Naples airport

From the Spaniard's subsequent corner, Napoli grabbed the all-important goal, Koulibaly rising above the Juve backline to head home a powerful victor, the final whistle sparking wild celebrations among the visitors and ensuring a thrilling conclusion to the title race.

A nightmare week for Juve has seen them relinquish a six point lead at the top of the league to only a one point gap between themselves and Napoli, and fans look full of belief of causing one hell of an upset for Il Bianconeri.

Maurizio Sarri's side pushed forward and had numerous chances, while Juventus, apart from a Miralem Pjanic free-kick hitting the post, created little.

"What is certain is that winning here is always very hard and wonderful, it's a huge satisfaction, but we must also remain lucid because at the moment it remains an end to itself".

"Juve are a very strong side, but we proved Napoli can fight it out with them".

The mayor of Naples calls Napoli's win over Juventus "a great joy for the whole city", but warns "now we all have to be focused for the final sprint". "We just need to get our heads down and focus on that".

Roma and Lazio both have 67 points from 34 games with Roma ahead on head-to-head clashes.

For many it felt like a final and when a reporter asked Insigne if Juve approached the game like "a Champions League Final and lose it?" he couldn't resist a dig.

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

Inter are a point further back in fifth, just outside the Champions League places, after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Chievo.

The title is still in the Bianconeri's hands, but it must be remembered that they face an incredibly hard task when they travel to Milan to face Inter in the Derby d'Italia on Saturday.

Crotone are 17th with 31 points, one place outside the relegation zone, and are 14 ahead of Benevento who can not catch them.
