Napoli throw Serie A race wide open

It was just Juve's third defeat of the season and their first since November.

"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.

"It's the most important goal of my life because winning here was an impossible mission", said Koulibaly. We should have done better in possession and not rushed around so much when they had it.

Juventus had to reshuffle their defence after Giorgio Chiellini limped off injured in the 11th minute although they almost went ahead with a Miralem Pjanic free kick which was deflected on to the post.

Another Azzurri raid down the left allowed Mario Rui to set up his captain Marek Hamsik, who grimaced after dragging his shot across Buffon's goalmouth and wide of the far post. We have a week to prepare for another big match now.

"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".

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

Massimiliano Allegri's side face a trickier run-in, as they will face Inter Milan and Roma.

Gronkowski confirms he'll play upcoming season
For the past couple of months, the Pats prolific tight end continued to reiterate that he "was not sure" if he would play in 2018. When the team gathered at Gillette Stadium last week for the start of the offseason workout program, Gronk didn't report.

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

"It was a bad game from both teams with zero shots on goal", said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri. We'll do all we can but it all depends on them.

"It was a head-to-head that was decided by a single incident".

"We're still top of the table, we still have the advantage".

"It was a attractive and joyful party because for us to win in Turin against Juventus is a great feat, not least for how it came with the goal at the end and the way we dominated".

Kalidou Koulibaly's 90th-minute header, though, saw Maurizio Sarri's visitors snatch a dramatic late victory to move one point adrift of the reigning champions.

Mariusz Stepinski pulled a goal back for Chievo who are just two points above the drop zone.

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