Napoli Player Ratings vs Udinese: Osimhen Secures Historic Scudetto

While the football was average at best, the Dacia Arena witnessed a historic night in Calcio, as Napoli clinched their third Scudetto triumph in a 1-1 draw against Udinese. The hosts stunned Luciano Spalletti’s men by taking an early lead through a wonderful strike from Sandi Lovric. Nevertheless, the Partenopei were hellbent on putting an end to a title race that never was, and Victor Osimhen’s rebound was just enough to put his team over the line. So here are our player ratings for Napoli who are now the crowned Italian champions for the first time in 33 years following their draw with Udinese.

Napoli (4-3-3)

Alex Meret – 6

The Udine-born goalkeeper was left with no chance on Lovric’s strike, but did well to deny the Slovenian midfielder on his second attempt.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo – 6

While it wasn’t the finest display from the Napoli captain, he maintained his composure and kept pushing forward at a time when despair was beginning to creep in.

Amir Rrahmani – 6.5

The Kosovan defender had the better of Ilija Nestorovski in what almost escalated into a heated duel.

Kim Min-jae – 6

A solid if unspectacular display from the South Korean who didn’t have much to do at the back since his team was the one pressing for the bulk of the match.

Mathias Olivera – 5.5

Not a terrible outing from the Uruguayan by any means, but he still isn’t offering the same energy and quality crosses provided by his teammate Mario Rui.

André-Frank Zambo Anguissa – 5.5

A tough outing for the former Fulham man who didn’t track back in time to pick up Lovric ahead of the opener. He also lacked the quality touch on the ball, but still ran his socks off for the duration of the match.

Stanislav Lobotka – 6.5

The former Celta Vigo man pulled the strings in the middle of the park as he normally does. While he started on a relatively slow note, his display grew with the match.

Tanguy Ndombélé – 5

A hard-working yet ineffective display from the Frenchman. Lost the ball cheaply and provided little flair before leaving his place for Zielinski at the hour mark.

Eljif Elmas – 6.5

The versatile North Macedonian started on the right wing. He picked up Osimhen with an inviting cross in the first half, and it was his corner kick that led to the equalizer. Also managed to put Zielinski through on goal with an exquisite ball.

Victor Osimhen – 7.5

It just had to be him. The Nigerian striker scored what will go down as one of the most famous goals in Napoli history, as his rebounded effort sealed the club’s third Scudetto title and the first in the post-Maradona era. He was on a one-man mission from the start, while his teammates took their time to get into the encounter.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia – 6.5

The Georgian displayed his lavish skills on several occasions, and it was his denied shot that led to Osimhen’s historic equalizer


Piotr Zielinski – 6

A positive cameo from the former Udinese midfielder who almost snatched the winner with an elegant volley but was denied by Matteo Silvestri. An obvious upgrade on Ndombélé

Hirving Lozano – N/A
