Napoli dominated the Serie A title race on Friday by defeating Juventus 5-1 and increasing their lead to 10 points ahead of the other teams.
This impressive win for Napoli solidifies their position as the front-runner in the league and puts them in a strong position to potentially win the title.
The victory also greatly increases the gap between them and their closest competitors, making it more difficult for them to catch up.
Luciano Spalletti's team once again impressed with a strong performance against their rivals, increasing the expectations of their fans for a first Scudetto in over 30 years.
Napoli's Victor Osimhen scored a goal in each half and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Amir Rrahmani and Eljif Elmas also contributed to the team's victory, which extends their lead over both Juventus and AC Milan.
Despite the potential for Milan to cut Napoli's lead to 7 points with a win on Saturday, the way Napoli handled Juventus is a clear indication that they are the top team in the league.
Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen were dominant in attack and caused problems for Juventus throughout the match.

The win was also significant as it was Napoli's first win over Juventus in the league in over two years, and it came at a crucial time in the season as both teams were fighting for the top spot in the league.
The match was played at the packed Stadio Maradona, which added to the intensity of the game and the importance of the victory for Napoli.
With this impressive performance, Napoli has solidified its position as a title contender and has set the bar high for the rest of the teams in the league.
The game was a statement win for Napoli and it will be interesting to see if they can maintain this level of play throughout the rest of the season.
