Napoli picked up a 2-0 win over Cagliari in the Italian league earlier tonight. The home side are now two points clear at the top of the Serie A table.

Goals from Victor Osimhen and Lorenzo Insigne sealed a vital win for the hosts.

Here at Anytime football, we look at the three major talking points from tonight’s contest.

Victor Osimhen is going right to the top

The 22-year-old attacker scored the opening goal of the game for Napoli.

Osimhen has been outstanding for the Italian club ever since his move from the French league and he has all the tools to develop into a world-class footballer.

The Napoli attacker has shown tremendous quality and maturity since joining the club and he managed to put in yet another defining performance for his side earlier tonight.

Osimhen has scored six goals in six appearances for Napoli across all competitions this season.

Frontrunners for the Scudetto

Napoli have been outstanding so far this season and they have managed to pick up wins in all six league games.

They have scored 16 goals in the league so far conceding just twice.

Napoli managed to keep yet another clean sheet tonight and their defensive form could be the key to realising their title ambitions.

The likes of Juventus and Inter Milan are there for the taking the season and this is a golden opportunity from Napoli to launch a proper challenge for the Scudetto.

Winless Cagliari set for relegation battle

Cagliari have been one of the worst teams in the league so far this season and they are yet to pick up a single victory.

They were comprehensively beaten by Napoli tonight and the visitors will have to improve immensely if they want to beat the drop this season.

They are 19th in the table right now with 15 goals conceded in six league games.
