Napoli ecstatic after 1-0 victory over Juventus in Serie A

Napoli ecstatic after 1-0 victory over Juventus in Serie A

Chiellini, 33, lasted just 11 minutes in Juve's 1-0 home loss to Napoli in the two sides' top-of-the-table clash in Turin on Sunday.

Thousands of delirious Napoli fans flocked to Naples airport, jamming approach roads, to welcome home their team after their famous 1-0 win at old rivals Juventus on Sunday re-ignited the Serie A title race.

Napoli coach Maurizi Sarri has defended his middle-finger gesture as the Napoli team bus arrived for Sunday's win over Juventus, saying it was a response to people who had insulted Neapolitans.

Massimiliano Allegri's side face a trickier run-in, as they will face Inter Milan and Roma.

Juventus now sits atop the Serie A table with 85 points from 27 wins and four draws on the season.

A Napoli win, on the other hand, would throw the cat among the pigeons, especially as Juventus appear to have the more hard run-in. We've always believed in the Scudetto.

"It was an excellent performance because, to come here and make Juventus play on the back foot. that's hard for any team to do".

And fifth, of course, is the fact that not a single judge, leave alone a chief justice of India, has ever been impeached. He had reportedly consulted legal experts over the weekend following the notice issued by the Opposition members.

Napoli plays Fiorentina, Torino, Sampdoria and Crotone.

"Tonight is a feeling that only those who have been with us since yesterday can fully understand", Sarri said.

Juventus never looked comfortable in their Allianz Stadium after losing veteran Chiellini - who is their best defender and a team leader - inside the opening minute.

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

Immobile tapped in a Milinkovic-Savic assist five minutes from the end, quickly adding a second to consolidate his position as leading Serie A scorer with 29 goals this season.

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

Udinese has just two more points after an 11th successive defeat.
