Napoli are just a win away from securing their first Scudetto in over 30 years and the feat would mark a historic season in the club’s yore.
Eyes were on the Inter vs Lazio match as a Biancocelesti defeat would mean that a win by the Partenopei from their game versus Salernitana hands them the Serie A title. Napoli fans would be thanking the Nerazzurri’s Lautaro Martinez and Robin Gosens for scoring the goals against the capital club. Now Lazio’s loss means that Napoli can mark their formidable season with just a win today and secure the Scudetto.
With just six more matchdays to go, it is an incredible feat that the Neapolitans clinched the Serie A title much sooner in a league which is becoming ever-competitive. Napoli have mostly stayed at the top of the table this season and it was inevitable that they would be winning the coveted trophy at the end of it.
Napoli’s Scudetto win will be a fitting tribute to the legendary footballer Diego Maradona after his nation, Argentina won the World Cup last year. In 1990, Maradona produced an exemplary season and handed the Partenopei their third-ever Scudetto.
This year, it will be the names of manager Luciano Spalletti and his daring men who have fought heart and soul throughout the campaign to make this opportunity possible.
All eyes are on Napoli vs Salernitana now.
