Napoli Humiliate Juventus By 5-1 to lead ahead by 10 points in Seria A


After hammering Juventus 5-1 on Friday and taking a 10-point lead at the top of the league, Napoli’s hopes of winning the first Serie A title since Diego Maradona’s time seem more realistic than ever.

To establish their dominance in a title battle that is beginning to resemble a one-team contest, Luciano Spalletti’s free-spirited players once again wowed with a statement performance against their old rivals.

Victor Osimhen increased his league total for the season to 12 with goals in each half, while the other goals scored by the hosts to increase their lead over Juve and AC Milan were scored by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Amir Rrahmani, and Eljif Elmas.

Champions With a victory at Lecce on Saturday, Milan may close the deficit to seven points, but how Napoli handled Juve was the latest indication that the greatest club in southern Italy is the genuine article and prepared to end a 33-year wait for a league title.

Attacking duo Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen were lethal, assisting each other’s goals and generally creating havoc on a team that had only conceded seven league goals in 17 games before to Friday.

We must keep up this momentum. We simply want to keep winning games, even if there is a long way to go. We should be in good shape by the conclusion of the season.

Despite a dismal start to the season, Juventus came into the match at a packed Stadio Maradona on an eight-game winning streak without conceding, making them championship favourites.

Instead, after conceding five goals in a Serie A game for the first time since May 1993, Massimiliano Allegri’s team left Naples with their tails between their legs.

“You will be punished when you commit mistakes, as we did against a squad like Napoli.” “They deserve to be where they are because they are the league leaders,” Allegri remarked.
