Serie A: Napoli, Fans Made To Wait As Salernitana Hold Champions To Draw

Serie A: Napoli, Fans Made To Wait As Salernitana Hold Champ

Napoli v Salernitana

Napoli fans were left disappointed on Sunday after their team was held to a 1-1 draw by Salernitana, delaying their celebrations of winning Serie A for the first time in 33 years.

Napoli needed a win to secure the league crown with six games remaining in the season and was on the way when Mathias Olivera headed the hosts ahead just after the hour mark, but Boulaye Dia's stunning strike in the 84th minute ensured Salernitana took a point after Mathias Olivera had headed the hosts ahead just after the hour mark.

The midweek round of matches could still end Napoli's long wait for glory, as they are currently 18 points ahead of closest challengers Lazio, but Juventus could close that gap to 17 by winning at Bologna in Sunday's late match and moving into second place.

Napoli will take on Udinese on Thursday night, and a win will ensure their current stars emulate Diego Maradona's achievement of leading southern Italy's biggest club to their only previous league titles in 1987 and 1990.
