Napoli put Juventus' title celebrations on hold
MILAN (AFP) - Goals by Gokhan Inler, Goran Pandev and Blerim Dzemaili handed Napoli a valuable 3-0 win away to rock-bottom Pescara on Saturday and put Juventus's title celebrations on hold for at least another week.
Juventus began the day with an 11-point lead on Napoli and would have secured their 29th Scudetto with a win over Torino on Sunday had Pescara beaten Napoli or held the visitors to a draw.
Given Pescara have only won six times in 33 games, that seemed a tall order for the league new boys who, after a 24th defeat of the season, seem destined for a return to Serie B.
Napoli are now nine points shy of Juventus before the 'Derby della Mole' on Sunday and have a 10-point lead on AC Milan in third ahead of Catania's visit to the San Siro.
