Kalidou Koulibaly's Last-Gasp Goal Caused 'Significant Ground Movement

The tail-end of Premier League has reached a tedious final act, but there is still time to divulge in some enthralling football action before the season ends.

Serie A's title-race is heating up and drawing towards a climax with its remaining games.

A little background for you on the hotly-contested title race: Juventus is to Italy what Manchester United was to England during the mid-1990s: loathed, reviled, but undoubtedly brilliant.

Winning all the time does that to a team. They become detested by everyone else. Imagine if Brighton won the league title six times in a row, just the same as Juventus have. Most would start to find them a little grating.

There are also geographical reasons for the anti-Juve brigade. Not least because of the ferocious north-south rivalry in Calcio-Land. The south with more traditional working-class Italian values, the north a more conservative region that's happier to be associated as part of a collective Europe.

Turin is based in the north. It's a city close to France and outside the formidable boot of Italy, making Juve even more like outsiders.

So, when Kalidou Koulibaly scored a late winning goal at the Stadio San Paolo -- a goal which could well lead the way for Napoli win their first title in 28 years - it was no surprised to hear that the shear jubilation of the Napoli crowd caused a miniature earthquake in the city's surrondings.

The Euro-Med Seismological Centre monitors seismic activity across Europe and they detected"significant ground movement" in the Neapolitan suburb of Fuorigrotta at the time when Kouliblay scored.

Victory would've meant so much to the city. It takes Napoli just a point below Juventus and with their rivals having to play Inter Milan and Roma in their remaining fixtures, they are well within a shout of clinching the title.
