Two weeks after Ronaldo’s spectacular bicycle kick helped Real Madrid eliminate Juventus from the Champions League, a similar overhead effort has left the Bianconeri’s march toward a record-extending seventh Serie A title suddenly seem precarious.

The audacious equalizer from the Nigerian forward Simeon “Simy” Tochukwu Nwankwo helped relegation-threatened Crotone to a 1-1 draw with Juventus on Wednesday and reduced the Turin squad’s advantage over second-place Napoli to four points entering Sunday’s top-of-the-table matchup.

A Napoli win at Allianz Stadium would reduce the gap to only one point with four games to go in the only real remaining title race in Europe’s five major leagues.
