Rome – Napoli footballers beat the home team Empoli 2:0 in the 24th round of the Italian league, and after their eighth win in a row, they lead the incomplete table by 18 points. The undisputed top scorer of Serie A Viktor Osimhen has scored in every match of the current successful SSC league series and scored his 19th goal of the season today.
He was also at the first goal of the match, after a cross from Lozano was aimed at him after a quarter of an hour of play, but unfortunately Ismajli knocked the ball into his own net. The Nigerian striker got the chance eleven minutes later, when Zieliňský's shot arrived.
From the 67th minute, the guests played without the expelled Portuguese defender Rui, but the opponent was unable to dramatize the match. Napoli followed up on Tuesday's 2-0 win over Frankfurt in the Champions League, while in the twelfth table, Empoli is waiting for a league win already five games in a row.
Italian Football League – 24th round:
Empoli – Napoli 0:2 (17th own Ismajli, 28th Osimhen), Lecce – Sassuolo 0:1 (65th Thorstvedt).
