Napoli 2-0 Sampdoria: Luciano Spalletti bids farewell with a victory as his Serie A champions finish 16 points clear… with Victor Osimhen on target in what could be his final game for the club

Sunday’s season finale saw Napoli defeat Sampdoria 2-0 at home thanks to goals from Victor Osimhen and Giovanni Simeone. Sampdoria had already been demoted.

Sampdoria finished last with 19 points, while Napoli finished first with 90 points from 38 games.

Due to Luciano Spalletti’s announcement of his decision to take a break and Sampdoria manager Dejan Stankovic’s announcement to DAZN before kickoff that he would not be in charge of the squad in Serie B next year, the match served as the final game for both coaches.

After being fouled by Nicola Murru in the 64th minute, Osimhen, the league’s top scorer, converted the penalty to cap an incredible season that saw him score 26 Serie A goals.

With that amount, he won the Golden Boot, finishing the season with five more goals than Lautaro Martinez, who finished in second place.

Five minutes before the end, Simeone unleashed a rocket into the goal to give the home team the three points.
