Series A, 2022-23: Napoli extend their lead over Juventus to 10 points with a 5-1 victory

Serie A’s second-place team, Juventus, was defeated by Napoli 2-0. This could have been Napoli’s biggest win of the season if Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia had worked together. Each player contributed to the other player’s goals and scored twice. They also ended Juventus’ sluggish and humiliating comeback.

With a 5-1 victory on Friday, Napoli increased its lead over Juventus, which is in second place, to 10 points. Victor Osimhen assisted Khvicha Kvaratskhelia on a third goal and scored two goals.

Juventus scored five goals for the first time in nearly 30 league contests. Best wishes to the team. Osimhen lauded Juventus’ challenges, which have resulted in 12 league goals scored in 14 games this season. a significant match, a significant team, and a lot of admiration for the struggle that Juventus is going through.” I’m pleased with the outcome because we needed this more than ever before.

Osimhen continued, “The road is still long, we just want to continue winning our games, we care less about other teams.” We want to keep racking up points, perform well, and adhere to the coach’s orders. “And of course, at the conclusion of the season, I believe we have a good chance.” The Turin visitors were heckled a lot because Napoli and Juventus have such a fierce rivalry.

After eight straight victories without conceding a goal, Federico Chiesa made his first start for Juventus since he tore his cruciate ligament more than a year ago. On the other hand, in the 14th minute, Napoli took the lead. Osimhen headed in the rebound after Wojciech Szczsny saved Kvaratskhelia’s acrobatic shot with skill.

This was Juventus’ first goal in 770 minutes. Di Mara scored against the crossbar after sprinting onto a careless pass from Rrahmani. This brought Juventus back to life in the end.

In the 39th minute, Osimhen did Kvaratskhelia a favor by rolling across the field and scoring for his unmarked teammate in the bottom right corner, giving Napoli a two-goal advantage. Three minutes before the break, Di Mara scored for Juventus, but it turned out to be a fluke for the Bianconeri.

11 minutes after the game started, Rrahmani headed in a corner that came to him in the middle of the field. Napoli utilized this.
