Six-time defending champions Juventus' lead at the top of the table has been cut to just one point with four games left.

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

"Juve are a very strong side, but we proved Napoli can fight it out with them".

"What is certain is that winning here is always very hard and wonderful, it's a huge satisfaction, but we must also remain lucid because at the moment it remains an end to itself".

The game appeared to be petering out into a draw that would have suited Juventus until Lorenzo Insigne's shot was turned around the post by Buffon for the decisive corner.

A draw would have put Juventus in firm control of the destination of the Serie A title, although now it is very much a two-horse race as the holders have some very hard games to come including away trips to Inter Milan and Roma.

The Napoli bus, which contained both playing and managing staff, was barracked by opposition fans as they approached the stadium, but Maurizio Sarri was in a defiant mood.

As you can imagine, football fans who saw the incident took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and while they were all stunned, the overall reaction was mixed.

Juventus confirm that veteran centre-back Giorgio Chiellini has suffered a knee injury that could leave the defender out of some key clashes at the close of the season.

It remains to be seen who has the last laugh.

The 33-year-old gritted his teeth and tried to play on but was forced off ten minuets later with a knee problem.

Napoli are right back in Serie A title contention thanks to Kalidou Koulibaly's dramatic late header in their game with leaders Juventus.

Chiellini has already begun therapy but no other details were provided by the club regarding the length of recovery.
