Two Italian rivals meet in Turin on Sunday in a game that will be a long way to deciding on the title – and the tension was high before the start!
Napoli’s coach Maurizio Sarri was in a tense mood before the title test, responding to the insults of Juventus fans with the quick flash of his middle finger.
Tension before the boiling point
In the south of the Italian side, Juve currently races four points in the Scudetto race, the remaining five games in the season.
Sunday sees that these two hopes in Turin meet in the head and tension before the boiling point was before the start! JuveNapoli
The Napoli team bus was barracked by the host team supporters as he made his way to the Juventus Stadium, but Sarri was not in the mood to be intimidated.
Perched in the front of the vehicle, the coach responded by holding his middle finger to his counterparts to remove their insults.
Juve and Naples have long been rivals, as two of the major tensions between northern and southern Italy.
The rivalry came in the head in the eighties when Napoli idolized Diego Maradona led the side to their best spell while Juve led the great Michel Platini.

The next flaming point came in 2016 when former popular Naples Gonzalo Higuain left for Turin, leading several fans protesting with jerseys.
