Napoli shines again ahead of Juve tie

Napoli ultras show hooligans how to greet opposition fans

Napoli defeated Juventus 1-0 riding a 90th-minute header by Senegalese central defender Kalidou Koulibaly at the Allianz Stadium here, cutting the deficit to one point against the Serie A leaders and six-time defending champions.

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

Juventus arguably has the tougher run-in as it faces Champions League-chasing Inter Milan and Roma as well as Bologna and Hellas Verona.

In a dramatic week, Napoli have pulled back five points on the Old Lady who had been surprisingly held to a midweek 1-1 draw by relegation battlers Crotone.

"The team believes, yesterday we saw the image of a team that doesn't give up, which is focused and which has the right adrenaline to overcome the obvious physical problems of recent matches".

Napoli continued to dominate after halftime but failed to make much headway against a typically resolute Juve defence.

Juventus vs Napoli is being shown live on BT Sport 1, with the pre-match build-up starting at 7.30pm.

We put together a full team of players...

"Of course, it will clearly be hard against a strong team, in a very tough stadium, and they have one of the most complete teams in Europe".

Davide Faraoni, who used to play for Udinese, scored a late goal to help Crotone move two points clear of the relegation zone - and level on points with Chievo.

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

Juventus confirm that veteran centre-back Giorgio Chiellini has suffered a knee injury that could leave the defender out of some key clashes at the close of the season.

Chiellini has already begun therapy but no other details were provided by the club regarding the length of recovery.
