Napoli among European Elite, Eye Club Record for Fastest Start

Napoli found a way to defeat Torino too, even if the game was seemingly slipping through their hands. Lorenzo Insigne missed a penalty kick in the first half, and the Granata created multiple chances to score. However, David Ospina rose to the occasion, and Victor Osimhen eventually hit the net with a majestic header.

The Partenopei have now tied the best start in their history. Maurizio Sarri put together a similar streak in 2017-2018, equalizing with Inter at the ninth matchday. Therefore, Napoli will have the opportunity to set a new club’s record if they defeated Roma away this coming Sunday.

The longest string of victories to open a Serie A campaign belongs to the Giallorossi, which triumphed in tenth consecutive contests in 2013-2014, with Rudi Garcia at the helm. However, neither of the two clubs won the Scudetto in those years, finishing second behind Juventus.

The Azzurri are the only team across the European elite that prevailed in every domestic contest so far, points out. All the other powerhouses, such as PSG, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and Real Madrid have all dropped at least one game. They share one stat with the Blues, as they too conceded just three goals thus far. They are the two least beaten sides in the top five leagues.

Only Milan have been able to keep with Napoli thus far, as the Rossoneri have one less win and ore more draw on their record. Inter are seven points behind due to the recent slip-ups. Juventus are even lower in the standings because of their terrible start.
