Mertens brace takes Napoli up to second in Serie A

Mertens brace takes Napoli up to second in Serie A”

Antonio Conte turned things around after being named manager in 2011, with Juve winning the Serie A title the following year, and they have not looked back ever since.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri rested several key players ahead of Tuesday's Champions League semi-final second leg against AS Monaco, including Gianluigi Buffon, Miralem Pjanic and Higuain.

Khedira, who missed the trip to Monaco due to suspension, insisted there is still plenty of work to do.

Tyson Fury has delivered the ultimate insult to Anthony Joshua
Speaking exclusively to Sky the day after the fight, Joshua showed some swelling around his left eye but said he was "good to go". I was waiting in front of him instead of moving my feet and I was just there for that sweet right hand.

"But we've taken a point towards the scudetto". If we win at home, even though Roma still have to play the next day, we will be closer to one of our objectives.

Torino keeper Joe Hart couldn't keep out Gonzalo Higuain's late strike.

Having hit both of Juve's goals at the Stade Louis II last week, Allegri said of the Argentine: "He's in great form at the moment". "I have a squad that permits me to make a few changes". Juve and Allegri in particular understands that although a two-ball lead before the return match at home means a 99% exit to the finals, it's not going to take any chances, so most likely in this game we'll see the fugitives, and so will not do without punctures.

Clinton said that the issue of equal pay should provoke concern in anyone, regardless of gender, political party, or ideology. She said she was "very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had".

Juventus' Argentinian forward Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain vies with Torino's Italian defender Emiliano Moretti and Torino's Italian midfielder Marco Benassi during the Italian Serie A football match Juventus vs Torino FC at the Juventus stadium in Turin on May 6, 2017.

Although the odds are stacked in favour of Juventus, who have beaten Torino three times in succession since a rare defeat at the end of the 2015 season, Torino fans can realistically dream of an upset.

Belotti has attracted attention from Europes top clubs, with Chelsea also reported said to be interested in the 23 year old, whilst Arsenal are rumoured to have had a bid of around £44 million rejected for the striker. "Before, we needed four points, now we need three".

Palestinians strike in support of prisoners' protest
The news conference by Khaled Mashaal, the Hamas leader in exile, was to begin at 7 p.m. (1600 GMT) Monday at a five-star hotel. However, the new document offers no recognition of the legitimacy of the "Zionist enemy", the term Hamas uses for Israel.

Napoli, only one point behind in third place, will move into the league's second automatic Champions League qualifying spot with a win at home to Cagliari on Saturday.
