Napoli moved 19 points clear at the top of Serie A to effectively put one hand on the title with 11 games to play after Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia scored yet again in a 4-0 win over Torino – their 10th win in 11 games.
Osimhen’s double took his tally to 21 goals, becoming only the fourth Napoli player to score more than 20 goals in a Serie A campaign, while Kvaratskhelia is the first player in Italy to put up double figures for goals (12) and assists (10) this season.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic became the oldest goal scorer in Serie A history but reigning champions AC Milan saw their Champions League hopes dented following a 3-1 loss to Udinese amid a poor run of form where they have lost five of their last nine games.
Stefano Pioli’s side could have moved up to second place with a win at Udinese but the defeat left them in fourth with 48 points after Sunday’s results.
Inter Milan suffered their third defeat in four Serie A games as they were beaten 1-0 by Juventus, who retained a minor chance of ending up in the top four despite their 15-point deduction.
Inter dropped to second behind Lazio who won the derby against AS Roma 1-0.
