Victor Osimhen

Victor Osimhen's first-half goal and Giovanni Simeone's late decider gave Napoli a 2-1 win against Roma on Sunday, as the club inches closer to ending their 33-year wait for the Serie A title.

Napoli currently sits at the top of the league with 53 points from 20 games, 13 points ahead of second-placed Inter Milan.

Napoli keeper Alex Meret made a crucial save to stop Bryan Cristate's header in the 61st minute, while Roma equalized in the 75th minute with a goal from substitute Stephan El Shaarawy.

However, four minutes before stoppage time, Simeone secured the win for Napoli with a precise shot into the upper right corner.

The 24-year-old Osimhen continues to shine in Serie A, and his dominant performance helped Napoli secure another crucial win.

The club and its fans are eagerly waiting to end their 33-year title drought, and with Osimhen leading the charge, they are closer than ever to achieving their goal.
