Football: Napoli scudetto, title with 5 rounds to spare

Naples, 4 May. (Adnkronos) – The countdown for Napoli’s third championship has come to an end. The Neapolitans, thanks to a 1-1 draw with Udinese, achieved the mathematical victory of the title of Italian Champions with five games to spare. The team led by Luciano Spalletti can thus celebrate the title after 33 years. After the defeat at San Siro against Inter, Napoli’s advantage in the standings over their pursuers was reduced to 8 points. Since then, however, the gap has begun to increase, with a string of eight consecutive victories from Marassi’s away match with Sampdoria to victory at the Castellani in Empoli. The victory of the Scudetto five days beforehand had already happened to four other teams: Turin in 1947-48 with 21 teams 35 days beforehand; Fiorentina in 1955-56 with 18 teams 28 days in advance; Inter in 2006-07 to 20 teams with 35 days to spare; Juventus in 2018-19 to 20 teams with 36 days to spare. Considering only the days, however, there is AC Milan in 1967-68 who won the Scudetto four days beforehand, on 31 March 1968, beating Brescia at the San Siro with Rivera’s goal in the final. That championship ended on the following 12 May, so the Rossoneri won the Italian flag 42 days before the end. As for their Serie A triumphs, Napoli won their first Scudetto on May 10, 1987, winning one matchday before the end of the season. The second championship instead arrived in 1990 on the thirtieth and final day.
