Napoli Enroute Historic Season; Inter and Juventus Records in Sight

Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli have been in scintillating form this campaign across all competitions, losing just twice in 31 matches all season. The Partenopei are enroute to grab a historic UEFA Champions League quarter-final spot following their 2-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg, but it is in Serie A where they have the chance to better two iconic records.

Their rapid march towards a first Scudetto title in 33 years will not only be historic because of the time gap, but also because they have the chance to oust the respective league records of Inter and Juventus.

Inter closed the 2006/07 season with 97 points to their name, holding a +22 gap over runners-up Roma – the largest gap in Serie A history. Napoli have a realistic chance of matching or beating that record if the teams down the table keep faltering.

The record for the most points in a single season is also in sights, currently held by Antonio Conte’s Juventus during the 2013/14 season. The Bianconeri recorded a whopping 102 points that campaign, and Spalletti’s outfit need 37 out of their 42 available points to match that legacy.

With three more months in the Serie A calendar, Napoli are already 18 points ahead of the Milan duo in February. If they maintain the same pace, Spalletti could lead his side to the title as soon as April. The Partenopei have 21 wins in 24 matches, racking 65 points so far with 58 goals – an average of 2.4 per game.
