Torino Hold Napoli For Juventus

Torino Hold Napoli For Juventus

Kwadwo Asamoah produced an excellent performance as Juventus came from behind with three second-half goals to beat Bologna and put them just one win away from a seventh successive Serie A title.

The result left Napoli six points adrift of leaders Juventus with just two rounds of league matches remaining, meaning the Old Lady need only a point from two games to lift the Scudetto.

As the teams are level on their head-to-head record, goal difference would decide the winners if they finished with equal points, and Juve are now 16 goals better off than Napoli.

Sarri said the "real turning point" was Juventus' last-gasp win over Inter Milan last weekend with two goals in the final three minutes.

Roma broke two points clear of Lazio in third thanks to Turkish global forward Cengiz Under's 15th minute strike in a 1-0 win which saw Cagliari slip into the bottom three.

But Torino hit back again as Mario Rui allowed de Silvestri to get behind him and head in Adem Ljajic's floated free kick.

After the race, Dennis told the BBC: "The team rode for me in the 30km before the intermediate sprint and delivered me perfectly". But having been left out of the Sky team to ride the Giro a year ago , Viviani wasn't going to let lightning strike twice.

With Juventus and Napoli in the top two spots, Inter Milan kept their Champions League hopes alive with a 4-0 win over Udinese to move to within two points of Lazio, who are third after being held 1-1 by Atalanta.

Teenage star Musa Barrow gave Atalanta the lead with less than two minutes on the clock but Felipe Caicedo leveled in the 24th, thanks to great work from Luis Alberto. Udinese defender Seko Fofana was sent off early in the second half for a risky tackle on Ivan Perisic.

Verona and Benevento have already been relegated.

Matteo Politano's goal midway through the second half ended Sampdoria's Europa League ambitions and secured Sassuolo safety.

Giuseppe Rossi scored his first goal in more than a year but it was not enough to prevent 10-man Genoa from losing 3-2 to his former team Fiorentina.
