Juventus on brink of Serie A title as Napoli draw with Torino

Hamsik reached 100 Serie A goals in 394 appearances for the Partenopei, who are seeking a first Serie A title since 1989-90.

The mood in the Stadio San Paolo was one of support for Sarri after club president Aurelio De Laurentiis laid the blame on the coach after last week's defeat at Fiorentina effectively ended their title challenge.

Napoli had appeared to have kept their slender hopes alive when Marek Hamsik struck in the 71st minute, a goal which restored their lead after Torino midfielder Daniele Baselli had cancelled out Dries Mertens' opener.

Sarri said the "real turning point" was Juventus' last-gasp win over Inter Milan last weekend with two goals in the final three minutes.

Juventus had recovered from a goal down to beat Bologna 3-1 on Saturday to open up a seven-point lead, and it is one that is now virtually insurmountable.

Their final two games are away to ninth-placed Sampdoria on 13 May and at home to relegation-threatened Crotone on 20 May.

Roma, two points ahead of Lazio, strengthened their grip on third place with a 1-0 win at troubled Cagliari thanks to a Cengiz Under goal after 15 minutes.

However, Juve's bitter city rivals would go on to claim a point as Lorenzo De Silvestri made the most of a lackadaisical Napoli back line to slam home a free header seven minutes from time.

Lazio - without injured Serie A top scorer Ciro Immobile - were trailing when Musa Barrow scored after two minutes before Felipe Caicedo grabbed the equaliser on 24 minutes.

The championship is a mere formality for Juventus after they were left with a six-point lead over Napoli - the only side who can catch them - with two matches to play and a goal difference which is better by 16.

Andrea Ranocchia, Rafinha and Mauro Icardi put Inter 3-0 up at half-time and Borja Valero added a fourth after Udinese had Seko Fofana sent off for stamping on Ivan Perisic.
