Napoli came so close to clinching the title on Sunday but a late goal from visitors Salernitana meant that the celebrations were put on hold. It was a game that the hosts dominated, taking the lead through Mathias Olivera on 62 minutes. With Lazio falling to defeat against Inter earlier in the day, it looked like the end of the game might be the moment everyone has been waiting for, but Salernitana didn’t give up and striker Boulaye Dia managed to draw them level with just six minutes to go. The result means that there can be no celebrations quite yet, but as April draws to a close, the excitement grows for what May could bring...
