League leaders Napoli outclassed Juventus thanks to dream duo Osimhen/Kvaratskhelia

Led by the outstanding attacking duo Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Victor Osimhen, SSC Napoli won the top game in Serie A against record champions Juventus Turin in a superior manner. The leader also deservedly defeated the pursuer in height 5:1 (2:1).

In a balanced first half, Napoli were more effective. Center forward Victor Osimhen (14′) and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (39′) put Naples on the road to victory – Argentinian World Cup hero Angel di Maria, who had previously hit the bar, gave Juve hope with his goal in the meantime (42′). .

However, this didn’t last long: Amir Rrahmani’s nice dropkick (55th) to make it 3-1 was too much for Turin, who then fell apart completely. Osimhen headed in unchallenged for his second goal (65′), Eljif Elmas (72′) made the humiliation perfect.

Kvaratskhelia became man of the match with his goal to make it 2-0 and the assists to make it 3-1 and 4-1. The Georgian was also involved in the 1-0 when he forced Juve’s keeper Wojciech Szczesny to make a save with a spectacular side kick, after which Osimhen only had to win.

Juventus, who started with ex-Frankfurter Filip Kostic and former Schalke professional Weston McKennie, had recently improved their form after a weak start to the season. Massimiliano Allegri’s team had won eight league games in a row before losing to Napoli – but not always convincingly in terms of play.

Naples, on the other hand, made a big step towards the third championship in the club’s history thanks to the convincing performance. First pursuers AC Milan are one game less level on points with Juventus, ten points behind football legend Diego Maradona’s former club.
