When can Napoli seal the Scudetto? The possible permutations and combinations

Napoli are on the way to winning the third Scudetto in club’s history. Luciano Spalletti’s side are 18 points clear of the second place with 12 games left to play. Fans are already planning the celebrations and we are heading into the period when many are guessing as to when the Scudetto will be sealed.

In the best case scenario, assuming that the gap will not change, Napoli could seal the Scudetto on match day 33 when they’ll play away against Udinese on May 3rd. That will be a midweek match and there will be five games left to play.

In case that gap increases, Napoli might seal the Scudetto on April 30th when they’ll play home against Salernitana.

Nevertheless, there is also a scenario where Napoli could see their gap reduced.

With a win tonight against Salernitana, Milan could reach the second place and will go on par with Inter. The Rossoneri will face Napoli on April 1st after the international break. With a win at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, the gap will be reduced to 15 points.

Assuming that it will not change again, then Napoli might seal the Scudetto on May 7th when they’ll face Fiorentina at home with four games left to play.

It would be fitting if they win the league after that game, as Napoli won their first ever Scudetto in 1987 after a 1-1 draw against Fiorentina.
