Spalletti’s Azzurri hit their fifth win in a row and momentarily move to +16 on second in the standings

Napoli full ahead: the leading team also overcame the Spezia hurdle, with flying colors. At the Picco, Luciano Spalletti’s team came out on top 3-0: after a first half of predominant ball possession (77%) but little offensive concreteness, the partenopei broke the ice early in the second half thanks to a penalty kick by Kvaratskhelia, awarded for a hand foul by Reca.

A real reaction from the Ligurians did not come, and the Azzurri closed out the game with a brace from the unleashed Osimhen: in the 69th minute the Nigerian striker pierced a very bad Dragowski with a header, in the 73rd minute he signed the tris on a counterattack on an assist from Kvaratskhelia.

Osimhen rises to 16 league goals and Napoli momentarily flies to +16 over second-place Inter Milan on 56 points. Spezia 17th at 18.
