Sarri Backs Osimhen And Napoli To Win Serie A Title Despite Defeat To Lazio

Maurizio Sarri believes Victor Osimhen and his Napoli teammates will be crowned Serie A champions despite their shock 1-0 home loss to Lazio on Friday night.

Sarri halted former club Napoli’s winning run after leading Lazio to the shock win.

Osimhen, who has been in fine scoring form missed the chance to become the second player to score in nine straight games in open play thanks to an impressive Lazio side.

Sarri came so close to winning the Scudetto in 2017-18, only to miss out by a handful of points to Juventus, after playing exhilarating football that saw the terms ‘Sarriball’ and ‘Sarrismo’ coined in his honour.

Now Spalletti seems to be on the verge of securing the third Serie A title in Napoli’s history, despite the 1-0 home defeat to Sarri’s Lazio.

After 24 rounds in 2017-18, Sarri’s Napoli had amassed 63 points, compared to Spalletti’s 65.

The big difference is that while back then Juve were only one point behind, this time Napoli have an 18-point cushion to work with.

And reacting after leading Lazio to beat Napoli, Sarri was quoted on Football Italia:

“The difference between the teams is that this Napoli is going to win and for that I envy them like crazy.

“Spalletti has been phenomenal, along with the club and director of sport, he had the courage to do things that had never been done before.”
