The Stadio Diego Armando Maradona Stadium witnessed the Super Eagles star once again shining on the grand stage and silenced his critics.
Napoli took control of the game with two first-half goals, courtesy of Piotr Zielinski and Victor Osimhen, both finding the back of the net before the halftime whistle.
Zielinski opened the scoring with a well-placed penalty, calmly outfoxing the goalkeeper and slotting the ball into the opposite corner.
Osimhen, who had endured four games without scoring, finally broke free from his goal drought.
He seized the opportunity after being provided space by Politano’s throughball, and coolly slotted the ball past Silvestri to double Napoli’s lead.
The Partenopei dominated the game and as the second half commenced, Kvaratskhelia extended Napoli’s lead to 3-0 in the 74th minute.
The winger capitalized on a defensive error, deftly chipping the ball over the goalkeeper and placing it into the empty net.
Although Samardzic managed to pull one back for Udinese, Napoli quickly reestablished their three-goal lead.
Kvaratskhelia delivered a precise cross to Simeone, whose powerful header proved too much for Silvestri to handle, sealing a convincing 4-1 victory for Napoli.
With his goal-scoring drought behind him, Victor Osimhen and his teammates will be eager to build on this success.
Napoli’s next challenge awaits them in a clash against Lecce on Saturday.
