Napoli stun leaders Juventus with late Koulibaly header”

The Azzurri were four points behind Juve ahead of Sunday's showdown at Allianz Stadium, but they emerged triumphant and slashed the gap thanks to Kalidou Koulibaly's late headed goal in a 1-0 victory.

Koulibaly bagged the victor in Napoli's clash with Juventus on Sunday, a result that pulled the Partenopei within a single point of the Serie A leaders with four matches left to play.

Seven minutes into the second half, Napoli went close to taking the lead with Marek Hamsik firing into the side-netting with a powerful low strike.

The Juventus boss praised his opponents after the game, admitting they dominated the ball, despite his team losing from a corner kick.

"Winning here was practically mission impossible, we can be happy because we have played against a great team which hasn't lost at home for so long", Koulibaly said.
