The second day of Serie A's match between Juventus and rival Napoli met all expectations on Saturday night at Allianz Stadium in Turin.

The Napoli thought they had managed a spectacular comeback by stacking three consecutive goals in the second half but finally had to concede the 4-3 defeat on a goalless goal from their side. Khalidou Koulibaly in the 92nd minute.

Led or rather abused following the goals of Danilo (16e) Higuain (19th) and Ronaldo (62nd), the Neapolitans gave almost no sign of life before the hour of play, avoiding even two other goals on occasions of Khedira.

The changes made at the break and the unexpected purpose of Manolas (66th) have all revived. The newcomer Hirving Lozano (68th) further reduced the gap while the 'Old Lady' was flickering. Less than 15 minutes later, it was 3-3 thanks to Di Lorenzo (81e). The 'Partenopei' of Dries Mertens, present all the meeting, had then made the hardest and could be content with a sharing. Unfortunately for Carlo Ancelotti's troops, an individual error of Koulibaly has done everything and gave the three points to Juventus who realizes the 6 of 6.
