Juventus v Napoli: Serie A – live!

Napoli have only ever won two Serie A titles, both with Diego Maradona in their side, most recently in 1989-90. It was just their third league defeat this season and a first since Nov 19.

Kalidou Koulibaly headed in a late victor in Turin to send Napoli to within a point of Juventus in the race for the Serie A title.

Juve, who have lost their last five European Cup finals, are gunning for a seventh consecutive Scudetto and presently sit a point ahead of second-place Napoli with four Serie A matches remaining this season.

"Chiellini underwent medical tests following his early exit from Sunday's match against Napoli", Juventus said in a statement.

"We are a team whose philosophy is always to try and impose our style of play and we will try to do that in Turin as well", he added.

Juventus vs Napoli is being shown live on BT Sport 1, with the pre-match build-up starting at 7.30pm.

Between now and the end of the season, Juventus are away to Inter, home to Bologna, away to AS Roma and finally home to Verona, while Napoli are away to Fiorentina, home to Torino, away to Sampdoria and home to Crotone.
