Lippi: 'Napoli in title race'

Marcello Lippi thinks Napoli are still in the Scudetto race even after the 1-0 defeat send Juventus top.

A late Simone Zaza deflected strike sealed last night’s showdown in Turin and put the Bianconeri in pole position for the first time this season.

“I don’t think the overtake automatically means Juve have the Scudetto,” the World Cup winning Coach told Rai Sport.

“I was asked this before the game too and I reply the same way – there are still 13 rounds to go, in other words 39 points, so it’s impossible to consider that result decisive.

“Clearly it is a game that shifts the psychological balance of the race, but everything is still possible.”
