For Juventus supporters, let me start by coming clean: I’m not a hater, and what The Old Lady does on an annual basis is unbelievable.

But for once in this decade, it’d be kinda cool if at least we could get a Serie A scudetto race last into the final week of the season.

That’s still possible after Juve slumped to a 1-1 draw at Crotone on Wednesday and Napoli came back from an early deficit to beat Udinese 4-2.

The two sides square off in Turin on Sunday.

Here’s how the table looks with five matches to play in Italy. Juve also had a Coppa Italia Final to contend.


And here are the remaining fixtures:

Juve: vs. Napoli, at Inter, vs. Bologna, at Roma, vs. Verona

Napoli: at Juve, at Fiorentina, vs. Torino, at Sampdoria, vs. Crotone
