Napoli were back on top form on Wednesday night against Udinese, securing a 4-1 victory at the Stadio Maradona. After a foul on Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Piotr Zielinksi scored a perfectly placed penalty, tucking away his second goal of the season.

Matteo Politano then set up a goal for Victor Osimhen, with the striker taking the score to 2-0.

After hitting the post twice earlier in the game, Kvaratskhelia came back with a vengeance, ending his six-month goal drought and putting the Azzurri comfortably in the lead.

Lazar Samardzic finally got Udinese on the scoreboard but just a minute later Giovanni Simeone’s header increased Napoli’s lead, taking the hosts to 4-1.
