Napoli put on an incredible display to destroy Juventus and extend their lead in the race for the Serie A championship to ten points. Juventus had gone eight games without giving up when the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium cruelly put an end to their streak.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Amir Rrahmani and Elif Elmas scored the goals in addition to two goals from Victor Osimhen. Juventus answered through Angel di Maria, moving them down to third as a result. Napoli scored first through Osimhen, who later assisted Kvaratskhelia in doubling their advantage. However, Di Maria responded just before halftime.
Ten minutes after halftime, Rrahmani gave the home team a two-goal lead, and Luciano Spalletti's team never looked back. Osimhen, a striker from Nigeria, headed in his 12th Serie A goal of the year after being set up by Georgian star Kvaratskhelia's exquisite pass. Elmas' deflected shot finished the scoring, and Juventus suffered their first five-goal defeat in a league match since May 1993.
