More pressure on Napoli than Juventus claims Allegri

More pressure on Napoli than Juventus claims Allegri

Napoli dominated play but failed to create clear chances until centre-back Koulibaly powered home Jose Callejon's corner in the last minute.

The win leaves Napoli just one point behind Max Allegri's side with four games remaining.

"To the lads I can't say anything, we play 57 games in a year, the others do not", declared the Juventus coach.

"Of course, it's very hard and fantastic to win here, it gives us enormous satisfaction but we have to remain lucid". Roma powered their way past the relegation battlers who had come into the game on the back of an eight match unbeaten run that included a 0-0 home draw with Juventus.

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has torn a muscle in his left knee, the club announced on Monday.

"We wanted to thank them, and the best way was to win it. Juventus are a great side, but Napoli showed we are on their level".

Marek Hamsik went closest for Napoli with an angled drive which flashed just past the right post.

Meanwhile, Napoli play Fiorentina (away), Torino, Sampdoria (away) and Crotone.

What is certain is that, by their own high standards, Juventus were a strangely submissive team on Sunday night.

The top four qualify for the Champions League group stage next season and Lazio's win kept them fourth with 67 points, behind AS Roma on their head-to-head record.

Immobile leads Serie A scoring with 29 goals, three more than Inter forward Mauro Icardi. Our win was a logical outcome of the way we played.

Icardi broke the deadlock seven minutes after the break and Perisic doubled Inter's lead 10 minutes later.

Which country provided the most players for this...

Chievo set up a tense finale when substitute Mariusz Stepinski scored in the final minute and nearly snatched an equalizer in stoppages.

There is also the distraction of a Coppa Italia final against AC Milan.

It remains to be seen who has the last laugh.
