Goals from Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Victor Osimhen gave Napoli a 2-0 win over Salernitana 2-0 on Saturday as they neared the end of their 33-year wait to win the Serie A title.
Napoli controlled much of the game and were never really threatened by Salernitana’s passive performance.
Osimhen thought he had given Napoli the lead in the 35th minute but his celebrations were cut short after being ruled offside by VAR.
Napoli finally took the lead in first-half stoppage time when a cross from inside the box fell on Di Lorenzo, who fired the ball in.
An unmarked Osimhen doubled the lead in the 48th minute when he deflected off a rebound from Eljif Elmas’ shot to the post.
Napoli top the table with 50 points from 19 games, 12 points ahead of second-placed AC Milan, who face Lazio on Tuesday. Salernitana, 16th, has 18 points.
