  • Maurizio Sarri and Massimiliano Allegri

"We made our extraordinary fans happy", said Sarri after his side snatched a 90th-minute win with Kalidou Koulibaly's header.

And tests on Monday confirmed a tear to the biceps femoris, the club revealing the 33-year-old has already begun receiving treatment for the issue.

The Senegalese defender's victor sees Napoli close up to within one point of Juve, with four games left in the season.

"It was one of the most important goals of my career".

As Napoli took control, Marek Hamsik got free and turned his shot across the face of goal, Mario Rui had a cross tipped over by Buffon and Lorenzo Insigne had a goal disallowed for offside.

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

The win, which moved Napoli to within one point of Juventus with four games left to play, sparked rapturous scenes back in Naples, where reportedly around 18,000 fans waited outside the airport at 2am to welcome home their heroes.




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

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

Napoli: Fiorentina (away), Torino (home), Sampdoria (away), Crotone (home).

"It was a bad game from both teams with zero shots on goal", said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Napoli are only a point behind Juve after their 1-0 victory.

"It was a handsome 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".
