Newly-crowned champions Napoli secured a 1-0 win over Fiorentina in Serie A on Sunday when the league’s top scorer Victor Osimhen scored from the spot at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
Osimhen could have put a relaxed Napoli in front from a penalty three minutes into the second half but Fiorentina keeper Pietro Terracciano saved his weak shot.
The Nigerian striker got a chance to redeem himself when winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia won another penalty for Napoli in the 74th minute and Osimhen put the ball past Terracciano with a much stronger shot.
Fiorentina remain eighth on 46 points, 12 points behind AS Roma in seventh and Atalanta in sixth with four games left in the season.
Napoli wrapped up their first league title in 33 years on Thursday when a 1-1 draw at Udinese put them out of reach of their rivals for the Scudetto.
Napoli were given a guard of honour by Fiorentina, while a tifo in the stands remembered those who are no longer here to witness it.
The stands lit up in a giant ‘3’ representing their third Scudetto after 1987 and 1990, with a long banner.
“We, the people who were born under a blue sky and by the sea… have the right to dream! Thank you for having given us and those who are no longer here another dateto remember.”
Borussia Dortmund demolished Wolfsburg 6-0 on Sunday, with two goals apiece from Karim Adeyemi and Jude Bellingham, to stay hot on the heels of Bundesliga leaders Bayern with three games left in the season. Dortmund are now on 64 points, one behind Bayern, 2-1 winners against Werder Bremen.
