Juventus played for a draw, but Napoli and Kalidou Koulibaly ensured it's game on for the title race, not game over, writes Giancarlo Rinaldi

It looked for all the world as if Juventus were going to get what they wanted yet again. With two results out of three in their favour, the Bianconeri played for much of their key Scudetto clash with Napoli as if their only desire were a draw. They held it in a loving embrace for almost the entirety of the match - until Kalidou Koulibaly powerfully tore it from their grasp.

Sarri looks to reverse Allegri record

Tonight’s clash between Juventus and Napoli will be the 13th time Massimiliano Allegri and Maurizio Sarri have faced each other as Coaches.

The first meeting came during the 2003-04 Serie C2 season, with Allegri at Aglianese and Sarri at Sangiovannese.

The two sides met in Arezzo for a Sangiovannese home game on November 16, 2003 in front of just 1,400 fans.

It wasn’t a classic, with Gazzetta dello Sport reporting that there wasn’t a single shot on target in the 0-0 draw.

Which Higuain will turn up?

With Juventus and Napoli set to lock horns in a mouth-watering Scudetto showdown, Vilizar Yakimov wonders which version of Gonzalo Higuain we’ll see

Gonzalo Higuain is such a strange character, isn’t he?

Max Allegri and Maurizio Sarri may both have forged their reputations in the lower leagues but, as Gaby McKay explains, they have very different philosophies.

November 16, 2003. Sangiovannese take on Aglianese in Serie C2, a 0-0 draw without a single shot on target, watched by just 1,400 fans. The encounter may not have seemed particularly significant at the time, but just under 15 years later the two Coaches that day will lock horns once again, in the biggest match of the Serie A season.
