Following a 1-1 draw with Udinese, Napoli has won the Serie A for the first time in 33 years, with Victor Osimhen’s goal sealing their victory and honouring club legend Diego Maradona.
Napoli’s victory was sealed by Osimhen’s 22nd league goal in 28 appearances this season, giving them a 16-point advantage over Lazio with five games left. There were celebrations in Udine, Naples, and the Stadio Maradona, but tensions arose when supporters barged onto the pitch.
Giovanni Di Lorenzo, the team captain, and Luciano Spalletti, the coach, both expressed their happiness and gratitude for the effort that resulted in the long-awaited victory.
Napoli’s historic victory was made possible in large part by Osimhen’s outstanding season, and his game-winning goal sparked jubilation among the team’s fans.
Despite a slow first half and an early goal from Sandi Lovric of Udinese, Osimhen’s goal in the 52nd minute gave Napoli supporters hope that they would win the championship.
The upcoming victory parade will offer a channel for the release of decades of suppressed emotion, much like how Napoli supporters rejoiced at Stadio Maradona. Osimhen acknowledged the importance of the occasion and expressed his joy at having helped Napoli succeed.
