Napoli extended their lead at the top of the Serie A standings by 21 points after a convincing victory over Torino.

The league leaders scored their first goal within nine minutes, with Victor Osimhen heading home from a corner kick to record his 20th goal of the season.

Later in the first half, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia was fouled in the box and converted the resulting penalty kick.

Osimhen scored his second goal of the match in the 51st minute with an acrobatic header from Mathías Olivera’s cross, and Tanguy Ndombele scored just moments after coming on as a substitute to make it 4-0.

The Super Eagles striker has now scored 21 goals in 23 appearances for Napoli in Seria A this season and he is closing in on becoming the first African to win the top scorer award in Italy.

Napoli will now monitor the result of the Derby d’Italia between Inter and Juventus to see if their 21-point lead will be maintained.
