Victor Osimhen for Napoli

Napoli stretched their lead at the top of Serie A to 21 points as Victor Osimhen scored twice in a 4-0 win at Torino. Osimhen, the league’s top scorer with 21 goals from 23 matches, netted the opener after nine minutes.

The Naples side has a 21-point lead over second-placed Inter Milan, who host Juventus later on Sunday. Napoli are now just 16 points away from winning the first Scudetto since 1990.

Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli team took the lead after nine minutes when Piotr Zielinski’s corner found Oshimen in the centre of the box and he headed into the bottom left corner.

Kvaratskhelia doubled the lead in the 35th minute with a penalty after being fouled by Karol Linetty.

Oshimen scored his second and reached a league-leading 21 goals this season six minutes into the second half with another header following Mathias Olivera’s cross.

Napoli next hosts fourth-placed AC Milan after the international break. Oshimen will join the super eagles for Qualifying games.
