Victor Osimhen's second-half goal secured Napoli's first Serie A title in 33 years, bringing an end to the city's long wait for the Scudetto since Diego Maradona led them to two championships in 1986-87 and 1989-90.
Napoli clinched their third Serie A title with five games remaining in the season, following a 1-1 draw at Udinese on Thursday with two games left.
This means Napoli will receive a "guard of honour" against Fiorentina and Monza which are their two Serie A games left.
Napoli fans had held aloft banners with the image of the late Maradona in the stadium, eager to see the long-awaited Scudetto.

After Udinese's early goal, Napoli stepped up their attack, and in the 53rd minute, Osimhen sparked jubilant celebrations among the visiting fans when he fired in the equaliser from a rebound.
As the final whistle blew, Napoli supporters rushed onto the pitch to celebrate the momentous occasion alongside the players.
"I am overwhelmed right now. It's an amazing feeling," Super Eagles' Osimhen told DAZN.
"We've waited so many years for this moment, and to be able to deliver the Scudetto to the Neapolitans is something we will never forget."
"We were the underdogs at the start of the season. Not many believed in us and so many people wrote us off," Osimhen added.
"We believed from the start of the season that we have this great squad that can deliver the Scudetto."
