Napoli are unstoppable this season in Serie A. They have won all their last five matches in Serie A. Today, they defeated Spezia by a 3-0 margin at Alberto Picco. Napoli are now 11 points clear of their closest rival, Inter Milan.
However, Victor Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia have become the deadliest duo in Serie A. Both players have scored 20 goals combined in this league. Today, Osimhen scored a brace, while Kvaratskhelia netted one for Napoli.
As it happened
Spezia welcomed Napoli FC today at their home. Luca Gotti, the manager of Spezia, tried not to play defensive football against the table topper. He set up the team formation with 3-5-2, where Amian and Reca played as the full-backs.
On the other hand, Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti played his team with a classic 4-3-3 formation. Victor Osimhen led the attack with Kvaratskhelia and Lozano.
However, Napoli tried to take control of the match from the very first minute. They created some chances in the first half, keeping more possession under their control. But the home team defended very well. Their defensive line was almost unbreakable. Both teams failed to find the net in the first half. As a result, the first part ended without scoring a goal.
But Spezia conceded a goal within 10 seconds of the second half. Defender Reca made a foul inside their box. As a result, the match referee offered a penalty kick to Napoli. Kvaratskhelia stepped forward to take the spot kick and made no mistake.
Conceding a goal early in the 2nd half, the home team lost the tempo. They became nervous to face Napoli’s speedy attack. Meanwhile, Napoli highly pushed the opponents to score more, and finally, they doubled their lead in the 68th minute. This time, Victor Osimhen scored a stunning goal for Napoli.
This striker took only five minutes to complete his brace. In the 73rd minute, Victor Osimhen found the net with the help of Kvaratskhelia. After that, Spezia failed to return one. In the end, Napoli secured a comfortable victory to get closer to becoming the champion.
