Napoli wins Serie A for the first time in 33 years

The city of Naples is ecstatic as Napoli are champions of Italy once again

Napoli wins Serie A for the first time in 33 years

Naples erupted with joy after Napoli’s second-ever domestic Italian triumph arrived as Victor Osimhen’s equalizing goal against Napoli clinched the title as it was mathematically impossible for second place, Lazio, to catch up in points with the remaining games left. Last week, Napoli missed out on clinching the title after tying against Salernitana, but this week away against Udinese, Napoli clinched the title. 

Critics had swept Napoli under the radar as a potential Italian winner at the beginning of the season, but with the attacking force of Victor Osimhen and Kvara Kvaratskhelia, Napoli only lost three games during the campaign.

Napoli also triumphed by nearly 20 points. The city of Naples had been waiting 33 years for another title. The last time Napoli had won, Diego Maradona led them to the pinnacle. 

Napoli’s European campaign ended last week but with the triumph of Serie A, fans can dare to dream as to what will happen next.

The most important thing for Napoli is to retain their powerhouse players like Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia, but with so much transfer interest from massive clubs around the globe, the likelihood of retaining Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia will be low.

Napoli has emerged as a world-class team and will be back to fight for a Champions League title and another Serie A title, despite the chance of  Napoli not being able to hold onto their World Class stars, Napoli has begun to create something special in Southern Italy.
