WHAT HAPPENED? Napoli have been confirmed as Serie A champions after their draw against Udinese on Thursday evening. Luciano Spalletti's side fought back from 1-0 down after Sandi Lovric scored the opening goal, with Victor Osimhen adding his 22nd league goal of the season to secure the point Napoli needed to win their first Scudetto since 1990, when Diego Maradona was their captain.
