Napoli 2-0 Empoli: This season, Napoli has proven to be unbeatable. The scary issue is that their supremacy does not seem to cease very soon. Luciano Spalletti’s Serie A team is currently at a lonely peak. Napoli won their eighth game in a row on Tuesday evening. This total equals their previous high.
If Napoli maintains its present form until the last matchday, it will have accumulated 102 points, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. Which would put Napoli on a par with Juventus with Antonio Conte during the 2013-14 season.
Only twice before has Napoli won the competition ten times in a row. Maurizio Sarri, the current Lazio coach, was in charge twice. From April through October 2017 (a total of thirteen seasons) and from December 2017 to February 2018, (ten in total).
Napoli has 35 points from their first fourteen games, for an average of 2.69 points per game. With that Napoli 2-0 Empoli result, the Neapolitans would have 102 points after 38 Serie A games.
Napoli supporters will not be wealthy anytime soon. Last season, Gli Azzurri took first place after fourteen games, albeit with three points less, but finished third in Serie A, behind Milan and Inter.
When asked if he had any regrets after the defeat, Empoli coach Paolo Zanetti reacted as follows. “Regret? No, I only have to congratulate my players. They gave everything, even when they were inferior, they gave everything against an extraordinary team. We had set the game in a certain way to close it in the centre and for the majority of the match we wrapped it. Angry about the penalty? We can change. We have 14 points and they are not few, we fought them on many fields, we won in Bologna and scored points with many teams.”
