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 helped relegation-threatened Crotone to a 1-1 draw with Juventus Wednesday and reduced the Turin squad's advantage over second-place Napoli to four points entering Sunday's top-of-the-table matchup.At one point Wednesday, when Napoli trailed Udinese (before eventually winning 4-2) and Juventus led in Crotone, it seemed Juventus could clinch Sunday by beating Napoli.Now, Napoli are again dreaming of their first title since Diego Maradona led the southern club to their only two Serie A championships in 1987 and 1990 .Juventus won 1-0 at Napoli in December courtesy of an early goal from former Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.
