Victor Osimhen scored for the eighth straight Serie A match, becoming the first player to do so since Cristiano Ronaldo more than three years ago, and extending his lead over closest challenger Lautaro Martinez in the battle to be named this year’s Capocannoniere.
Despite Mario Rui getting dismissed midway through the second half after he yelled at Francesco Caputo of Empoli, the Partenopei eventually won 2-0 at Stadio Castellani. Napoli, who have won 21 of their 24 league games while scoring 58 goals and allowing just 15, are unquestionably headed for a long-desired title victory in the upcoming months or even even weeks.

Lazio have kept things close on the road this season, conceding just seven league goals away from the Stadio Maradona, a record matched only by Napoli. Yet, their most recent opponents are not only unbeaten at home in Serie A, but also score over three goals per game there on average. The scale of the task facing Maurizio Sarri as he gets ready to visit his old team is fairly obvious, but his current squad is still very much on track to play in the Champions League next season.
Ciro Immobile’s lack of form and health up front has been partially offset by Sarri’s club, who are second only to Juventus in Serie A this season for clean sheets kept. They may feel that they are the only team capable of stopping the league leaders for 90 minutes. Naturally, Juve had similar thoughts before being humiliated 5-1 at Naples just after the holiday break.
