Rome – Napoli players said goodbye to the championship season and coach Luciano Spalletti with a 2-0 win over Sampdoria Genoa in the final 38th round of the Italian league. Victor Osimhen, the best scorer of the competition, who scored 26 goals in the last season, scored the winning goal from the penalty spot.
Champions Napoli started to get chances against relegated Sampdoria only in the second half. After one of them, the Nigerian Osimhen was fouled in the penalty area, who then himself converted the penalty kick. At the end of the match, Simeone confirmed the victory for the home team with a successful shot from behind the goal. The team was last led by coach Spalletti, who already announced last week that he wanted to take a break from football.
Sampdoria relegated from the top Italian league after 11 years, with only three wins in 38 matches and 19 points representing the worst result in the club's league history.
