Juventus increased the misfortunes of its guest, Napoli, the “defending champion”, when it beat them 1-0, at the “Allianz Stadium” in Turin, at the summit and opening of the fifteenth stage of the Italian Football Championship, seizing the lead temporarily and again from Inter.
Juventus owes its victory to its defender Federico Gatti, who scored the only goal of the match with a header from close range in the 51st minute.
Gatti played the role of savior for the “Old Lady” team for the second week in a row, and put it temporarily in the lead, after he did it last Friday by scoring the difficult goal to win over Monza 2-1 in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
Juventus, absent from European competitions this season due to the ban imposed on it for suspicious financial activities in player transfer deals, took advantage of 10 points being deducted from its score last season, taking advantage of the ground and the audience to the fullest, and achieved its second victory in a row and the eleventh this season, raising its score. To 36 points, seizing the lead by one point from Inter Milan, which hosts Udinese on Saturday.
Juventus increased Napoli’s hardships and made it difficult for Naples to defend the title they won last season for the first time in 33 years, after inflicting their second loss in a row, after the humiliating first against their guest Inter, 0-3 in the last stage and the fifth this season, and their score froze at 24 points. In fifth place.
The southern team is now in danger of falling to seventh place, if Fiorentina (23 points) wins over its host Roma, and Bologna (22 points) wins over its host Salernitana on Sunday.
Napoli suffered its third defeat in a row under the leadership of its new, old coach, Walter Mazzarri, in various competitions, after falling to its Spanish host, Real Madrid, 2-4, in the fifth and penultimate round of the group stage of the Champions League competition.
The loss of Mazzarri’s men, who succeeded the “dismissed” Frenchman Rudi Garcia from his position, due to poor results, came before their decisive summit against their guest, Sporting Braga of Portugal, next Tuesday, for the final price tag of the Champions League competition.
Napoli only needs a draw to join Real Madrid in the next round of Group C.
