Napoli controlled 67% of the possession in the first half and quickly took a two-goal lead into the interval courtesy of goals from Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen.

The first goal from the Napoli winger – Kvaratskhelia was a display of tremendous skill as he grabbed the ball close to the halfway line before sprinting into the Sassuolo box and fired his effort into the bottom corner.

Moments afterwards, Lauriente believed he had leveled for Sassuolo, but the post denied him. Osimhen then went on to double their lead from a tight angle.

The Super Eagles forward scored in the 33rd minute of the match by beating Sassuolo goalkeeper Consigli at his near post, just minutes after hitting the post.
