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.

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.
