Napoli beat Juventus 1-0

Kalidou Koulibaly scored a late winner to help Napoli win 1-0 at Juventus and reignite the Serie A title race on Sunday (Apr 22).

Napoli are right back in Serie A title contention thanks to Kalidou Koulibaly's dramatic late header in their game with leaders Juventus. They are now one point behind Juve, who have won the past six titles, with four games to go - and the Turin side have yet to visit Inter Milan and Roma.

Napoli dominated play but failed to create clear chances until centre-back Koulibaly powered home Jose Callejon's corner in the last minute. Juve did not have a shot on target. 

However, Miralem Pjanic hit the post in the first half with a deflected free-kick.

It was only a third home league defeat for Juventus in the past five years. They had been unbeaten domestically since November.

Napoli have only ever won two Serie A titles, both with Diego Maradona in their side, most recently in 1989-90.
