After Ronaldo, another bicycle kick hurts Juve's fortunes

ROME (AP) First it was Cristiano Ronaldo. Then came Simeon "Simy" Tochukwu Nwankwo.

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 on Wednesday and reduced the Turin squad's advantage over second-place Napoli to four points entering Sunday's top-of-the-table matchup.
