Koulibaly, labelled a hero when he scored the last-gasp header that kept Napoli's ambitions alive with a 1-0 win over Juventus in Turin last week, turned villain in Florence when he was sent off after just eight minutes. "We lost tactical certainties after the sending off, and faced with adversity we lost our way and our nerve too," said Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri. "The entire team had a bad performance. We won as a team at other times, today we lost as a team. I didn't see any positives." Juventus battled past 10-man Inter Milan in a San Siro thriller on Saturday to prevail 3-2 thanks to two late goals in three minutes.

Massimiliano Allegri's champions host Bologna on Saturday and will be assured of the title if they win and Napoli lose at home against Torino on Sunday. "I want the whole team to fight back straight away," said Sarri as Napoli chase a third title after 1987 and 1990. "If we always focus on the next game, we can have a good season." Napoli never recovered from Koulibaly's dismissal, the towering Sengalese defender initially shown a yellow card for kicking out at Simeone as he charged towards goal.

The 22-year-old completed his hat-trick three minutes into injury-time to claim his 13th goal this season. The suspense remains over who will join Juventus and Napoli in the Champions League next season. Both Roman clubs occupy the two remaining places with Roma beating Chievo 4-1 and Lazio edging past Torino 1-0 to remain third and fourth respectively level on points, with Inter Milan four points behind in fifth.

Luis Alberto saw his penalty saved and Serie A top-scorer Ciro Immobile went off injured, with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic's header giving Lazio all three points at Torino. The final game of the season will see Lazio host Inter. AC Milan maintained their Europa League hopes with a 2-1 win at Bologna to end a six-game winless streak including last week's shock reverse to bottom club Benevento. First-half goals from Hakan Calhanoglu and Giacomo Bonaventura ensured Milan -- one point behind sixth-placed Atalanta, who beat Genoa 3-1 -- keep touch with the Europa League places.
