Juventus 0 Napoli 1: Partenopei close the gap thanks to Koulibaly

Napoli threw the Serie A title race wide open with a dramatic 1-0 win in Turin, but one of the major headlines was Buffon being the only Juventus player to remain on the pitch to wish their rivals well. When you play at the rate we do, I think it's normal to be exhausted.

Napoli, meanwhile, seeking to win a first Scudetto since 1989-90, when they were inspired to a second title in four seasons by the great Diego Maradona, visit Fiorentina next weekend hopeful of seizing on any further slip-ups from the leaders.

The Bianconeri face Inter, Bologna, Roma and Verona before the end of the season, as well as AC Milan in the Coppa Italia final.

"It was a bad game from both teams", he said.

In the end, Chahal, Royal Challengers' most consistent bowler of the past few seasons, didn't even finish his quota of four overs. Before that, Roy had peppered the straight boundary with clean hits despite the likes of Pollard and Hardik Pandya patrolling it.

Juventus lost defender Giorgio Chiellini to injury in the first half while Miralem Pjanic hit the post.

Sarri told the Naples club's homepage: "We've won here in one of the most significant arenas in Europe, against a team that has won six league titles on the bounce - they could also win a seventh".

Napoli captain Marek Hamsik threatened twice to break the deadlock while Lorenzo Insigne had a goal disallowed for offside in the first half, before substitute Piotr Zielinski's late snapshot was cleared by Gianluigi Buffon.

"It was a lovely 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".

In the confrontation, the security forces foiled the attack by killing all the terrorists, the statement added. Other Islamists operating in the western desert bordering Libya have also attacked security forces.

"Unfortunately we did not mark properly for their corner and so we conceded a goal".

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

Elsewhere, Lazio and Inter kept their push for Champions League football alive on 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.

Benevento's relegation from Serie A was confirmed on Sunday after just one year in Italy's top flight.
