Napoli have been one of the best teams in the Italian Serie A by a significant margin.
Since suffering the 2-1 loss against Juventus in October, the team are undefeated in all competitions – a run that now stretches to 17 games. Napoli secured a 7-1 win over Bologna during the weekend to move ahead of Roma in the second spot. Now, they have established a one-point advantage over Roma and five points over Lazio. Even though the capital club can reclaim the second spot if they win the game in hand, it has been an astonishing turnaround of form from Maurizio Sarri’s team.
