It was a party started with the celebrations of the Argentine legend, Diego Armando Maradona, for the 62nd anniversary.
Napoli honors the memory of their legend by winning the eighth game in a row in Serie A at the expense of Sassuolo, and move up to 32 points on the top of the league.
In a match without a lot of stories as the hosts closed the game from the beginning with three goals in the first 35 minutes thanks to the double of Victor Osimhen interspersed with the sixth goal in the league of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The second half was played at a slower pace, but the number 9 scored again to reach the hat-trick and the Azzurri waste another half dozen chances.
Victor Osimhen continued his dominant scoring season as the Nigerian has scored more Serie A goals than any other Napoli player this season (7).
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has been directly involved in more goals than any other Napoli player this season, with 7 goals and 9 assists in 16 games in all competitions this season with Napoli.
Only Diego Milito (15) and Cristiano Ronaldo (13) have been involved in more goals than Kvaratskhelia (11: 6 goals + 5 assists) in their first 12 matches in Serie A, among the players who made their debut since 2004/05, since the top-flight returned to 20 teams.
Since their return in Serie A (2007-08), Napoli have seen one of their players scoring 3+ goals in a single league game 20 times, at least 6 more than any other side in this period.
