Napoli Threaten Juve's Perennial Dominance As Inter hold The Aces

British bettors turning attention to scintillating Scudetto race

The win kept Juventus in the hunt for their seventh consecutive Serie A title, having taken a four-point lead at the top with three matches left for them to play.

Juve's lead had been cut to one point after its defeat by Napoli in Turin last week.

But Milan Skriniar turned the ball into his own net after 87 minutes with Gonzalo Higuain heading in the victor two minutes later.

Sarri, who saw striker Gonzalo Higuain leave Napoli for Juventus two years ago after breaking the Serie A scoring record, also pondered what effect another Juventus win would have on the championship.

Inter boss Luciano Spalletti said on Italian television station Mediaset Premium: "Clearly, we need to shake off the bitterness of this defeat, because the team didn't deserve it".

"We'll need to win all the remaining games to win the title because Napoli will win every remaining match".

Inter Milan were playing at home to Juventus and after the visitors scored on 13 minutes, Inter then had a man sent off five minutes later.

Against all the odds, Inter turned the game around as Mauro Icardi equalised shortly after halftime and veteran Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli turned Ivan Perisic's low cross into his own net.

That potentially crucial loss at home to their closest foes in the Serie A title race left Juve just a point ahead of Napoli, Kalidou Koulibaly having headed in a dramatic 90th-minute victor.

Eusebio Di Francesco's side are three points ahead of Lazio who play Torino on Sunday with Inter staying a further point back in fifth.

The Giallorossi will hope to repeat their heroics against Barcelona in the last round by overturning a 5-2 semi-final first-leg deficit against Jurgen Klopp's men on Wednesday and found some form on home soil.

The hosts dominated even after Brazilian defender Juan Jesus was sent off for fouling Inglese and Alisson saved the resulting penalty, with El Shaarawy and Dzeko adding two more within 10 minutes.

Inglese headed in a late consolation goal for Chievo, but they remain two points above the drop zone. "Us with the voices, you with the heart, let's win it!", read a banner displayed by the Drughi Ultras group.
