Luciano Spalletti’s side marked the occasion with a 4-0 thrashing of Sassuolo thanks to Super Eagles star Victor Osimhen’s hat-trick at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, named after their former star. 

After his death, Napoli named their ground after him, retired his No 10 shirt, and unveiled a statue, which will now be the second sculpture to be displayed at the stadium.
