Napoli are shattering records, as never before in the three points for a win era has a team been 15 points clear at the top of the Serie A table after 22 rounds.
They beat Cremonese 3-0 and Inter were held to a goalless stalemate by Sampdoria, therefore allowing the leaders to expand their advantage from 13 points to 15.
It is the first time since three points for a win were introduced in Serie A in 1994-95 that a team has managed to open up a 15-point lead after 22 rounds.
The previous best during this period was Inter, who were 11 points out in front of Roma at this stage in 2006-07.
However, Inter did amass more points in that season, reaching 60 rather than Napoli’s current total of 59.
Juventus also reached 60 points after 22 games in 2018-19, but their lead over second-place Napoli at the time was only nine points.
Luciano Spalletti’s side have 19 victories and only one defeat, 1-0 to Inter on January 4, more than any other club in Europe’s top five leagues this season.
Only Barcelona could potentially match them, as the Blaugrana are currently on 56 points after 21 games.
Looking further afield, Benfica are capable of equalling Napoli’s tally, as they currently have 53 points in 20 games.
