Napoli Ends 33-Year Scudetto Drought with 1-1 Draw Against Udinese in Serie A Triumph

Napoli secured their first Serie A title since the 1989-90 season after a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Udinese at the Dacia Arena.


The Partenopei knew that a point would be enough to secure the Scudetto following their draw against Salernitana in the previous week, and they got off to a shaky start when Sandi Lovric gave Udinese the lead in the 11th minute.

Napoli dominated possession but struggled to create clear-cut chances in the first half, with Victor Osimhen’s towering header coming closest to finding the back of the net.


However, Napoli came out of the blocks flying in the second half and found an equalizer just five minutes after the restart. Kvicha Kvaratskhelia’s shot was parried by Udinese goalkeeper Silvestri into the path of Osimhen, who made no mistake from close range.

Napoli continued to push for a winner but were unable to break down a resolute Udinese defense, with Silvestri producing a number of impressive saves to deny the likes of Piotr Zielinski and Osimhen.


Despite failing to claim all three points, the draw was enough to secure Napoli’s third Serie A title, ending a 33-year drought for the Partenopei.

The triumph is a testament to the work of Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso, who took charge of the club in December 2019 and has turned them into a formidable force in Italian football.


Napoli’s victory is also a triumph for their passionate fanbase, who have waited patiently for over three decades to see their team lift the Scudetto once again.

As the celebrations get underway in Naples, the city will be hoping that this is just the start of a new era of success for its beloved football club.
